The immediate chief of staff to the governor of Osun state, Gboyega Oyetola, has been described by his principal, Rauf Aregbesola, as the most suitable and qualified candidate to take from him the baton of Osun state leadership after the September 22 gubernatorial election in the state.
The Punch reports that Governor Aregbesola made the remark at Ooni of Ife palace in Ile-Ife during a courtesy visit to the monarch's palace to commence the campaign of Oyetola for the coming election in the state.
Recall that Oyetola emerged the flag-bearer for the coming guber election after a tough battle with over ten candidates jostling for the number one seat.
Eulogising the APC candidate as a qualified heir, Aregbesola said: "Oyetola has justified his capacity and capability as a man of impeccable character and worthwhile personality who remains dogged and forthright to all policies that had impacted positively the lives of the citizens."
"We are not in doubt about Oyetola’s competence and ability. He is calm and much more reserved. He knows the job and he will serve our people. He will advance the development programme of our party."
Oyetola in his own remark said if he wins the coming election, the priority of his government will be built on people's welfare. He also said he will work towards an advanced traditional institution, culture and tourism of the state.
Oba Ogunwusi Enitan commended Aregbesola for what he has done for the state, adding that the governor has demonstrated what a leadership built on trust should be.
