Minister Worked Against Osun Governor’s Re-Election
The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola who’s holidaying in United States of America has deleted an earlier post where he broke his silence on the outcome of the just-concluded Osun State governorship election.
The Sunday morning post was a bible verse, Daniel 4:17, which exalts God’s power to place control in the hands of whoever He wishes.
The quoted verse said, “This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.” – (Daniel 4:17),” the minister posted.
However, the Media Adviser to the Minister of Interior, Sola Fasure, said the post had to be deleted because it was not authorised.
The former Osun State governor, who boycotted the election, had remained silent on development in Osun State after his outburst against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress and his political boss, Bola Tinubu, in February 2022.
Aregbesola had publicly moved against the second-term ambition of Governor Oyetola.
Instead, Aregbesola endorsed the former Secretary to the State Government, Moshood Adeoti, who later lost to Oyetola at the APC governorship primary election held on February 19, 2022.
Aregbesola reacted to the election in a now-deleted post titled, ‘Osun Le Tente’, connoting the wish of the Osun people excelled, on Sunday morning
