Nigeria's minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on Thursday, February 17, said the national convention of the All Progressives Congress will determine the fate of Governor Gboyega Oyetola's second term fate.
Speaking in Ikiri during his engagement tour, the former governor said he has been in a battle since Oyetola, his successor assumed office.
Lamenting that the incumbent Osun state governor is now in battle and against all those who helped him to power, Aregbesola said he has reported Oyetola to God.
The former firmly assured that Oyetola will not run for a second term as the party has already asked them to hold an election after the four years.

The Punch reports that Aregbesola noted he campaigned passionately for Oyetola's first tenure as governor only to be rewarded with ingratitude.
“I begged him for two years and even sent people to him. Everything we did together for eight years, he destroyed.
“When I saw that he is firm on this enmity, I told God about it. If Bola Ige comes back to this earth, he will join us. We are carrying the mandate of this party."
