Former Osun state Governor and the current Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has shunned the ongoing election in Osun state.
Findings show that the former governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, has travelled abroad to attend a conference.
One of the Minister’s aides said Aregbesola traveled out of the country to avoid any form of crisis.
Recall that Aregbesola had publicly moved against the second-term ambition of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola over unresolved crisis between the two APC chieftains.
It was learnt that the minister was in Lagos State on Thursday before travelling abroad on Friday.
When contacted, Aregbesola’s media adviser, Sola Fasure, confirmed the minister’s absence.
“He proceeded on an official assignment on Friday,” Fasure said.
Fasure posited that Aregebesola didn’t get any invite to work for governor Oyetola for his second term bid.
He further explained that the minister was not named in the Osun State campaign team by the All Progressives Congress in the state.
He said, “Aregbesola is not in Osogbo. He is on an official assignment. He was not invited and not a part of the election council. The governor did not also invite him to be part of the campaign.”
Recall that Aregbesola’s camp had put up a statement that they are still part of APC and support their candidate.
