‘Osun 2018: Defections Won’t Change APC’s Fortune’



Osun state Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) – led administration in the state remains committed and united, regardless of defection of some members from the party.

The governor said this at the weekend in Ilawo, Ejigbo Local Government while addressing a crowd of APC loyalists at a special Sallah celebration organized by the Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Najeem Salam Aregbesola said that he and members of his political party are not in any way deterred by the defection of some members of the party to opposition parties, ahead of the September 22 governorship election in the state.

According to him,  the gale of defection will not in any way affect the

victory of the party, saying APC remains strong on account of its wide acceptance by the people

He said, “This defection has made us to know those that are genuinely with us and those that are not with us. We have known friends, enemies and cunning individuals among us by this defection but we are not afraid of their antics as we remain united, strong and committed.

“We are confident of victory. We know God is on our side and we believe in Him, we believe He will lead us to victory”, Aregbesola added.

Aregbesola, who described the APC as the only political party that can turn around the socio-economic fortunes of the state and Nigeria for better, urged the electorate to vote for the party in all elections.

While applauding the party loyalists for their resilience, doggedness and forthrightness in the thin and thick, particularly before, during and after the party’s governorship primary, Governor Aregbesola enjoined the party faithful to remain optimistic in the ability of the party to take the state to enviable height.
