NATIONAL leader of All Progressives Congress
(APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, has asked
Nigerians to prepare their charms and other
native powers for the 2015 poll.
Tinubu said this during the inauguration of
Governor Rauf Aregbesola for a second term
in office in Osogbo, Osun State, on Thursday.
Other party chieftains, alongside Tinubu at
the ceremony, were former military head of
state and APC presidential aspirant, General
Muhammadu Buhari; erstwhile acting national
chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande and
APC state governors, among others.
Speaking to the crowd that thronged the
venue of the event, Tinubu said, “we are
today celebrating your firm stand, courage,
determination and steadfastness. The
greatest philosophy that started in Osun is
common sense revolution. It is the ability to
send these people away. They take from you
and steal from all of us. Is Nigeria better off in
the past four years? It is getting worse.”
Also speaking, Buhari bemoaned what he
termed the pitiable state of the nation,
tasking Nigerians to utilise their voting rights
in effecting a positive change in 2015, by
supporting APC in its quest to attain power at
the federal level.
The APC presidential aspirant, who described
Aregebesola’s victory on August 9 as catalyst
that revived the morale of APC, maintained
that “after Ekiti disaster and the botched
impeachment of Nasarawa State governor,
Osun people stood their ground and voted
for APC.”
Aregbesola had won the August 9 election by
polling 394, 684 votes to defeat the standard-
bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),
Senator Iyiola Omisore, who secured 292,747
votes.
After taking the oath of office, administered
on him by the state Chief Judge, Justice
Oyebola Adepele Ojo, around 1.15 p.m.,
Aregbesola, accompanied by his wife, Sherifat,
rode in a motorcade around the stadium.
Delivering a speech, titled: “Continuing on our
path of greatness,” the governor said “we are
here today to celebrate the goodness of God,
indomitable spirit of our people and
democratic ideals,” recalling that “before,
during and on the day of the governorship
poll, there was a security siege on Osun to
instill fear in our people.”
While contending that the best thing for
Nigerians is to vote massively for the APC in
2015 general election, Aregbesola asserted
that “in the past four years, we have kept faith
with the mandate given to us by the people.
We have rekindled the virtues of hardwork.”
According to him, “the PDP stands for poverty,
mystery and insecurity. They are prepared to
sacrifice the entire nation for their hold on
power.
“In February 2015, we would defeat them.
Osun has proven it. We would defeat them in
all national elections. We urge all Nigerians to
rise up and defeat the PDP. Enough is
enough. Don’t be intimidated.”
Governors at the inauguration ceremony
included Comrade Adams Oshiomhole (Edo),
Babatunde Fashola (Lagos), Ibikunle Amosun
(Ogun) and Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State.
Also present were former governor of Osun
State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola; first
executive governor of the state, Senator
Isiaka Adeleke; national publicity secretary of
APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and immediate
past governor of Ekiti State, Dr John Kayode
Fayemi.
Others were Speaker of the Lagos State House
of Assembly, Honourable Adeyemi Kuforiji;
the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi; Oba
of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akinolu; deputy
governor of Oyo State, Chief Moses Adeyemo;
wife of the former Vice President, Alhaja Titi
Abubakar and a host of others.
