Those Who Hurt Aregbesola Ask For Reconciliation, Not Him – APCGM
THE All Progressives Congress Grassroot Movement (APCGM), State of Osun Chapter, has said that those who off ended and hurt the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, are the ones making eff ort to reconcile with him and not the other way round, as some people are mischievously speculating in the media.
According to the APCGM, those who are making effort to reconcile with Aregbesola know that the party might lose the coming governorship election on if the APC house is not put in order in the state.
The group said individuals who off ended Aregbesola and at the same people need his support for their political cal ambisons, especially as Osun election on is drawing nearer were struggling to bring him back to their circle.
The group in a statement issued by its Director of Publicity and New Media, Mr. Wiliams Akinola, described the intervention of the Alaafi n of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and Ooni of Ile-Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on the rift between Aregbesola and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as a welcome development.
Akinola said APC stands to gain a lot if Tinubu and Aregbesola could reconcile their differences, maintaining that none of them can be wished away. He however, dismissed the insinuation on that Aregbesola was the one who
went to the traditional rulers to seek reconciliation.
Akinola said: “In as much as we are lovers of peace and we really want our house, APC, to be in order, we also need to ensure clarification on and set the record straight on the rift between our referred leaders, Tinubu and the Minister, Aregbesola.
“We need to state categorically as revealed by our fi ndings that it is those who hurt Aregbesola,
those who areempted to bring him down polically, those who were fighting him on false assumption on
of presidential Ambition are the ones that want to reconcile with him.
“Those who offended him, those who were badmouthing him but now realised that they need his support are the ones that ‘silently sought’ for reconciliation.
“As a group promoting unity and progress of the APC, we will not allow any misinformation on that
may want to scutle the ongoing peace process to reconcile our leaders.
“As a matter er of fact, the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, summoned Ogbeni to the meeting held at his house in Ibadan, on Monday. We believe that as an Omoluabi, Aregbesola cannot and will never turn down any invitation on from any of our esteemed traditional onal rulers.
He has regards for them. “We know that APC stands to gain a lot if Asiwaju and Aregbesola could reconcile. We cannot wish any of our leaders away.
They are valuable to us in the South-West politics.
We hope the two of them come back together for the bet erment of we, their followers.”
“We commend our traditional rulers for taking it upon themselves to foster peace among the two leading political leaders in Nigeria
