‘Aregbesola Will Deliver In Osun’


A chieftain of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, Otunba Niyi Raheem has backed  the new governor of Osun State, Engr. Rauf Aregbesola to deliver the dividends of  democracy to the impoverished people.

Raheem, an ACN House of Representatives aspirant under Agege Constituency said he  had every confidence that the Aregbesola-led administration in Osun would bring  greater development in the state.

Aregbesola, according to Raheem, is a tested, trusted leader and administrator. “I  know things can only get better in Osun under the able leadership of this great  democrat, Engr Rauf Aregbesola, and the ACN government has come to stay in Osun,” he  said.

He urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to take note of   recent developments in Osun, Ekiti, Edo and Ondo States where nullification of  fraudulent elections had led to the removal of state governors by the judiciary.

According to him, the judicial interventions that rectified the fraudulent elections  in these states should serve as a lesson to INEC ahead of the 2011 elections.

Raheem said a careful appraisal of the developments in these four states and other  states where poll results had been reversed by the court, would give the Prof  Attahiru Jega-led INEC an understanding of the level of rot in the country’s  electoral system.

He stated that the development in Osun State had shown that the truth would always  prevail no matter how much it is concealed.

He stressed that the lesson for INEC was that the people have been sufficiently  enlightened and emboldened by the success of some election petitions like that of  Ekiti, Osun, Edo and Ondo States and would not accept any fraudulent results from  the electoral umpire in 2011.

“We thank God and the judiciary for the return of the stolen mandate of the people  of Osun State to the rightful owner. But for the court, the PDP-led government would  have denied the people of Osun their rights. So, it is important for INEC to be  vigilant and ensure that all avenues for manipulations of the electoral process in  the 2011 election are blocked.”
