Relationship with my former boss Aregbesola is cordial

The report said that while speaking during his appearance on a programme monitored on Osun State Broadcasting Cooperation (OSBC), Oyetola said he has no problem with his former boss, having served him for eight years as chief of staff.

He said:

“My relationship with Ogbeni is very cordial. I see him as my brother so there is nothing to it. At least, somebody I served for eight years to ensure his success, why would I be working against him?
