With the Osun state governorship election coming up on August 9, Governor Rauf Aregbesola says he is confident he will win the election by popular votes as he is prepared to face Peoples Democratic Party forces.
Governor Aregbesola, who gave this assurance while speaking in Osogbo, on Saturday, also warned the PDP against rigging the governorship election.
Aregbesola, who also said he will win the election because the PDP does not have the support of the masses like him said:
“I’m a product of the popular forces, by popular forces, I mean the people, I emanated from them, I’m a product of their struggle. I’ve interacted on a daily basis with the people from the outset of my administration. They know me and I know them. I have affected their lives through populist programmes.
“I’m from the street and it is easy for me to go back to the street because that’s where my people are. Can they (PDP) go to the street?
“They don’t know who they are facing; my real home is the street. Look at me, do I look like a governor? That’s why I call my administration government unusual because we need to bring passion and vision into governance and break away from stagnating ways of doing things.
“Let’s meet on the street. My administration has the full support of the masses.”
t was reported on June 25 that the Governor Aregbesola had warned security agents of misbehaving during the election saying:
“We are ready to co-operate with the security agents before and during the election. Any security officer who, however, misbehaves during the election will know that we are children of Oduduwa.”
Meanwhile PDP Candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore who is also confident he will defeat Governor Aregbesola in the forthcoming governorship election said:
“On August 10 after declaration of results, we would all be jubilating across the state, while all our enemies will be crying in their closet.”
The Minister of State for Defence, Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro, however said the PDP would stop the APC from rigging the election.
He said: “We are not here to capture Osun. We want people to come out without any fear or intimidation and cast their votes. The noise, the hullabaloo that you are hearing is because they want to rig. We know them too well with their capacity to rig election. They are not for one man, one vote. They have been importing people into the state.”
