MAMOTH CROWD AT RAUF AREGBESOLA'S CAMPAIGN RALLY IN IKIRUN

MAMOTH CROWD AT RAUF AREGBESOLA’S CAMPAIGN RALLY IN IKIRUN

Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has introduced a new angle to last Saturday’s governorship poll in Ekiti State, saying his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, lost due to fraud but maintained that it was impossible to rig him out in the August 9, 2014 governorship election in Osun.

He spoke in Ikirun yesterday during the continuation of his campaign which took place in the town.

Aregbesola, who was obviously excited by the large turnout of his supporters at the campaign, said that it was impossible to oust him from power in Osun because he still enjoyed grassroots support.

Aregbesola, who addressed the mammoth crowd in Yoruba language, urged the people of the state to vote and protect their votes from being manipulated.

He said, “They perpetrated fraud in Ekiti but we are looking at them. They said that my days in office remain 43 days and I just laughed. What they did in Ekiti is not possible here in Osun. Osun is different and they know it. In 2011, all Yoruba states voted for Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate but Osun people voted for Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, who was the Action Congress of Nigeria candidate. We are different in Osun. Don’t let them scare you.

“The people here today have shown that they are solidly behind us. We are not angry about the development in Ekiti State because it is part of democracy. Ekiti people have made their choice”.

The governor, who is seeking re-election, said that he and his people did not have any problem with law enforcement agents who discharged their duties accordingly.

He, however, warned that any one of them who decided to go outside their bond, would not find it easy.

Speaking on the rumored plan to sack civil servants in the state, Aregbesola said the rumor was the handiwork of the opposition.

He maintained that his administration had not sacked any worker since he assumed power in November 2006, saying he could not embark on such a move now.

The Director General of the Aregbesola Campaign Organisation, Senator Sola Adeyeye, urged the people of the state to vote wisely by casting their votes for Aregbesola.

He alleged that those who killed Chief Bola Ige, in apparent reference to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore, were lurking around the corner seeking to hijack power in the state.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
