As the Osun state gubernatorial election draw nearer, Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state has urged the people of the state not to leave a man with quality education to cast their vote for "a dullard as governor".
Punch reports that the governor, who spoke during a rally in Ikire to mobilise support for the APC candidate, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, stated that the ruling party is “ordained to deliver the state from under-development.”
NAIJ.com gathers that Ikire, which is the headquarters of Irewole local government, is the home town of the APC running mate, Benedict Alabi.
Aregbesola said: “Oyetola attended good schools from elementary to the university. He has proved himself to be a role model to the youths.
“He is hardworking, experienced and competent. He is a candidate to trust. You must not allow someone that students cannot be proud of, who the students cannot aspire to be like educationally to rule the state.
“Academically and professionally, Oyetola has made his mark. So, Osun cannot afford to have a dullard or a desperado as governor."
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Senator Ademola Adeleke, an Osun governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), slammed Governor Rauf Aregbesola, tasking him to account for how he allegedly led the state into abject poverty.
In his reaction to Aregbesola's questioning of his qualification for governorship, Adeleke raised questions about his reportedly suspicious engineering credentials. Adeleke said: “The fake engineer has run our state aground."
