The minister of Health, Prof Isaac Adewole, has assured residents and people of Osun State that the APC candidate for the September 22, gubernatorial election, Gboyega Oyetola, will consolidate on the infrastructure and legacy of the outgoing governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
Adewole, an Ijesa born technocrat turned politician, made this disclosure when he paid a solidarity visit of support and loyalty to the Ilerioluwa office of the Gboyega Oyetola campaign organisation in Osogbo yesterday.
“Over time, I have convinced myself that we need someone who can build on the infrastructure Ogbeni has already put in place, one who can continue with a good speed and in the right direction, and I’m happy the larger percentage of the APC members found you worthy. I have no doubt in my mind that you will perform excellently well on assumption of office, by the special grace of God,” he said.
“In this contest, there’s no winner, there’s no vanquished. And I am happy you have kick started the process of reconciliation, which is a good attribute of sportsmanship, as the presence of other co – aspirants like Dr Ismail Saka-Layonu and Chief Olugboyega Alabi in your office today, is a testament of your humility which is second to none. We must all work together to win the coming election. What endeared me to you is your large, magnanimous heart for selfless service and your good understanding of governance,’’ Adewole confirmed.
“I have come today to pledge my support and loyalty to our party.”
While reacting to the direct primary method initiated by the national headquarters of the APC to elect the flag bearer in Osun, Adewole reminded party members on the vital role they have to play in giving a platform to the candidate.
