Osun APC: Aregbesola’s Loyalist Fights ‘Dirty’ Against Oyetola

A strong loyalist of the minister of interior Rauf Aregbesola, Kolapo Alimi,has vowed to ensure he works against the second term governorship ambition of Adegboyega Oyetola. Alimi said that Oyetola would definitely fail at his second term governorship ambition betraying his predecessor’s trust. Having served as a commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs.

Alimi at The Osun Progressives, TOP, weekly meeting, said Oyetola’s ambition to return as governor will not succeed. Alimi said while he has suffered during the court cases in Abuja, he was more pained by Oyetola’s betrayal of the former governor, Aregbesola. He added that every scheme by Oyetola to return to office as the governor of Osun state would be a nullity. Alimi said: “Oyetola will only succeed in his ambition if he did not betray Aregbesola’s trust and mine towards making him the governor. “I know the role that my boss (Aregbesola) played in Oyetola’s emergence and I also contributed to his victory during the litigation.” “During the Supreme Court case, we travelled with our vehicles to Abuja on a journey of over eight hours.” He said their lives were at risk as they travelled by road all the way to Abuja while Oyetola boarded the plane luxuriously. He added that every scheme by Oyetola to return to office as the governor of Osun state would be a nullity.

A suit by some loyalists of the minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has been thrown out by a Federal High Court. The suit is seeking to invalidate ward congress held by the All Progressives Congress (APC) on July 31, 2021. According to the court, the suit brought before the court was strictly party affairs, which it lacks jurisdiction on.

Aregbesola had alleged that some miscreants have dumped their party and joined the ruling APC. The former minister, who recently defected to APC alongside Omisore, described Aregbesola’s comment as reckless and idiotic.
