Former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and Speaker, House of Representatives, Honourable Aminu Tambuwwal will be in Lagos on November 2, to join bigwigs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) including former governors Bola Tinubu and Olagunsoye Oyinlola for an event to celebrate the victory of the Osun State governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, at the last governorship election in the state.
The leaders, according to the Nigerian Tribune, will at the event discuss charting a new course for Nigeria’s democracy.
According to a statement signed by the Senior Special Adviser to the Governor on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Honourable Abdullah Adeyanju Binuyo, who is also chairman of the organising committee of the event tagged Victory Colloquium for Mr Aregbesola, the theme of the event will be “Osun election: A pathway for Nigeria’s democratic growth.”
“The over-militarisation and intimidating atmosphere during the Osun governorship polls have been well documented. Despite this, the people of Osun State stood in full vigilance, not only to vote for the candidate of their choice, but also rose to stoutly defend their votes,” the statement noted.
The event is being organised in conjunction with an unnamed online news medium.
