A coalition of the youth wing of the All Progressives Congress, APC in South-West Nigeria, has congratulated Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola on the 25th anniversary of Osun State.
The youths, under the aegis of the National Image said Aregbesola’s emergence as the winner of the last year gubernatorial election was a plus and blessing for APC.
The group in their congratulating message said the then ruling party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, had perfected plans to rig the elections like they did in Ekiti State but that their plans were thwarted in Osun State during Aregbesola’s election.
The congratulatory message which was signed by the coordinator of the group, Mr Seyi Bamigbade had it that the APC fold was lucky to have a seasoned and a highly revered politician in the person of Governor Aregbesola in their midst.
The statement reads; “We are grateful to God for what he has used Aregbesola to achieve in the APC. The presidential election which the APC won would not have been possible had Aregbesola lost the Osun State gubernatorial election. His emergence opened the eyes of our members to the various rigging strategies that the PDP has already put in place.”
The group pledged their loyalty and support for the administration of Aregbesola, even as they felicitated with the good people of Osun State on their 25th anniversary.
