Osun 2018: Let Us Continue To Kick Out Selfish Leaders – Buhari To Osun Voters



Buhari Urges Osun People To Vote Gboyega Oyetola.

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday urged Osun State residents to save the state from returning to the “dark days”.

This is as the president led top members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to a mega rally for the party’s candidate in Saturday’s governorship election, Gboyega Isiaka Oyetola.

President Buhari who urged the residents to renew the party’s mandate in the state, thanked God for the Rauf Aregbesola administration, describing it as successful.

In his words, “We are here to thank Almighty God for the successful 8 years tenure of the APC Government in this state under the leadership of His Excellency, Rauf Aregbesola, the Omoluabi of Yorubaland.

“We are also here to pray to Almighty God to safeguard and consolidate on this through Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola.

“You are fully aware of this great partnership story. Oyetola is a partner, a trusted advisor, a brother and a friend to Governor Aregbesola. They have seamlessly worked together for many years serving you.

“By electing Oyetola as your Governor, you are guaranteeing the consolidation of these successes.

Eight years after Governor Aregbesola took the mantle of leading the business of government in Osun, the state now has excellent infrastructure for primary and secondary schools. The school that I commissioned in 2016 is one of the best schools in Nigeria. But more work remains to be done. Oyetola is ready for work.

“Osun State has empowerment programmes to support entrepreneurs. You had school construction and rehabilitation programmess to improve the quality of education. You had hygiene, sanitation and health care programs to improve the quality of life. You had security and outreach programs that enhanced peace and stability in your communities.”

Cautioning the electorate of the consequences of allowing those who plundered the nation’s wealth back into the saddle, Buhari said: “Nigerians kicked the corrupt and selfish leaders out of the Federal Government in 2015. And by the grace of God, the voters will continue to keep them out of leadership positions until we permanently consign their corrupt governing style into the history books.

“Nigeria must be free of corrupt and selfish leaders. The children of all Nigerians will get quality infrastructure, education, health care and job opportunities. This is why you must all come out and vote for APC on 22nd September 2018.

“Osun must remain APC. Osun must continue on the path of progress. Osun must not allow the dark days to return.

Governor Aregbesola on his part, said that voting Oyetola on Saturday will be rewarding hardwork.The governor who danced and sang to the admiration of the huge crowd at the Osogbo Township Stadium.

In company of President Buhari at the rally were 13 governors, ministers and party leaders, including National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief Bisi Akande, Chief Segun Osoba, and other party leaders.
