The Somolu/Bariga, Lagos branch of The Continuity Team (TCT), a group canvassing forÂ Governor Babatunde Fasholaâ€™s second term in office, has urged Governor RaufÂ Aregbesola of Osun State to be fair to all in his day-to-day running of hisÂ administrationâ€™s policies and programmes for the people, irrespective of religionÂ and political inclination.
Speaking through its supervisory coordinator, Prince Kunle Oyekanmi; Primate S.A.Â Shojobi, coordinator, Somolu; Chief S.A. Ayoade, coordinator, Bariga and AlhajiÂ (Chief) Ademola Alabi, the Baale Owode, Bariga, the patron, Aregbesola, according toÂ the group, should not allow himself to be distracted from operating an open doorÂ policy he pledged during his inauguration, describing his emergence as a new dawnÂ and liberation for the entire people of Osun State.
These were contained in a congratulatory message dispatched to the governor and madeÂ available to P.M. NEWS last weekend.
The group called on all the people of Osun State to rally round the governor for hisÂ tenure in office to be as successful as that of Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola ofÂ Lagos, reiterating that what the new governor needs is the cooperation of all andÂ sundry for the state to witness unprecedented growth structurally, economically andÂ socially.
â€œWe in The Continuity Team, Somolu/Bariga branch, are sure that the governorâ€™sÂ qualities and confidence reposed in him by all the progressives in Nigeria and theÂ good people of Osun State will serve as a thrust for him to transform the state toÂ an enviable position like Lagos, where he had worked for many years,â€ the groupÂ said.
