- The minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has received a strong warning from the PDP not to go ahead with his planned visit to Osun state
- Aregbesola, who was the immediate past governor of Osun is planning the celebration of the 10th anniversary of progressive government in the state
- The opposition party, however, noted that the APC government has impoverished the people of the state
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, November 24, warned the ex-governor of Osun and minister of interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, to stay away from the state to prevent the breakdown of the law and order.
This Day reports that the party also claimed that the residents of the state had suffered enough in the hand of Aregbesola when he was the governor of the state.
The party noted that the people of the state do not deserve to be put through a harrowing experience of security breakdown, saying the proposed visit by the minister to the state was a ploy to cause mayhem.
This was contained in a statement by the party's state deputy national publicity secretary, Prince Diran Odeyemi.
Security operatives have been called upon by the opposition to be at alert ahead of the planned visit by the ex-governor purportedly to mark 10 years of the return of progressives’ administration in the state.
Odeyemi further claimed there was no concrete achievement recorded in the state during Aregbesola’s tenure, insisting that the proposed visit was a ploy to cause mayhem.
The PDP chieftain, however, urged security operatives to remain vigilant and take proactive steps to prevent a crisis in case the former governor insists on visiting the state.
