Ahead of the August 9 governorship election in Osun State, Governor Rauf Aregbesola Monday night held a secret meeting with his predecessor in office and former National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, as parts of his efforts to win a re-election.

The meeting which took place at Oyinlola’s country home, Okuku lasted less than one hour.

Sources told Vanguard that the governor arrived Oyinlola’s residence around 9:30 pm and left the house few minutes after 10 pm.

Though details of the meeting were not immediately known, it was reliably learnt that the two men held talks on political developments in the state, particularly the August 9 governorship poll.

Both Aregbesola and Oyinlola later took photographs when Aregbesola was departing Oyinlola’s Okuku residence.

Earlier in the day, the Senator representing Osun Central Senatorial District in the Senate and a close associate of Aregbesola, Professor Sola Adeyeye, was sighted in Oyinlola’s Okuku residence, in company of the former governor.

Apart from Aregbesola and Adeyeye, who visited Oyinlola, two of the three aspirants that contested the last governorship primaries of PDP in the state, Isiaka Adeleke and Wole Oke both attended the Easter party Oyinlola organised, earlier touted to be strictly for the PDP members. [Vanguard]
