Aregbesola no longer APC leader in Osun – Senator Basiru


Senator Ajibola Basiru has waved off the influence of ex-Interior Minister Rauf Aregbesola in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State.

The immediate past spokesperson of the Senate declared that the former governor is no longer a leader of the party in the state.

Basiru had a chat with reporters on Wednesday during a welcome-back event at his senatorial office in Osogbo, the capital.

The politician said the former minister failed to work for the party or President Bola Tinubu during his campaign or election.

“Mr Aregbesola was our leader, but I don’t know which party he belongs to now. I am not abusing him. Even Asiwaju, his benefactor, didn’t vote for him.

“Go and ask him which party he voted for in the governorship election, the presidential election and the House of Assembly election.

“For the past three elections, we have not seen him participating in any of our party’s activities,” Basiru noted.

He mentioned “Baba (former Governor) Bisi Akande and (former Governor) Gboyega Oyetola” as APC leaders in Osun.

Basiru recalled that Aregesbola was absent at “four important processes” before the general elections, including primary and campaign events.

The former minister’s refusal to support his “mentor” to emerge as APC’s candidate is “a moral question they must answer”, he added
