Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that there is no truth in the media report that the governor of the state Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National leader of the ruling party is at loggerhead over the nomination and submission of ministerial candidate for the state.
“It is important to correct a lingering falsehood of a difference between our National Leader and the Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, on the issue of Ministerial Nominees for the State of Osun. For the avoidance of doubt, Ministerial Nomination and submission of same, if it ever occurred, was the sole responsibility of our National Leader,” a statement signed by Kunle Oyatomi, Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy of the APC in Osun State, said.
“At no time did any of our Governors in our region unilaterally submitted names of nominees for Ministerial appointments.”
“The question of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola unilaterally submitting the name of anybody for ministerial appointment against the submission made, if any, by the leadership of our party in the South West is not only false but grossly mischievous.”
“We appeal to the media at large to always perform their duties responsibly and guard against anything that can overheat the polity.
“Let us grow democracy, promote freedom; enshrine liberty for the peace, progress, development and security of our country, Nigeria,” the statement said.
