Atiku urges Osun in-laws to vote Aregbesola

Rauf Aregbesola, Governor of Osun State

One of Mr. Abubakar’s wives is from Osun State

A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has appealed to the electorate in Osun State to vote “wisely” on Saturday by returning the incumbent governor, Rauf Aregbesola, for another four-year term.

A statement from Atiku Media Office, quoted Mr. Atiku, whose first wife, Titi Atiku Abubakar, hails from Ilesa in Osun State, as calling on his in-laws to defeat the PDP at the governorship election.

Mr. Atiku is a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which has Mr. Aregbesola as its candidate in the election.

Mr. Atiku made the call to a section of Osun leaders who paid him a courtesy call shortly after his arrival from a trip abroad, the statement said.

“I am one of you by marriage. In fact, I am a son of the soil who shares your revered ideals and tradition of honesty, modesty, dedication to duty, steadfastness, integrity and communal responsibility. We do have a common bond of a lifetime. So I am urging you to team up with the progressives in your state and Nigeria to put in place good governments that would benefit all and sundry. Please, don’t let me down. Vote Aregbesola and APC,” the former Vice President said.

Aside matrimonial ties, Mr. Atiku has a longstanding relationship with Governor Aregbesola.

“Ogbeni is a people’s politician, a great policy maker and implementer. He is humane, simple and humble. He has the fear of God and respect for men and women. He is a steward of high repute and his numerous works and high performance ratings would see him win a second term massively,” added Mr. Atiku.

Rauf Aregbesola deserve second term because he is a grassroots politician that has perform very well towards the upliftment of the people.

    Rauf Aregbesola of APC is the best candidate for Osun people because of his record of achievement Vote for him both scientific election rigging must be fought with totality, for if we neglect to fight we are simply sitting on the keg of gunpowder and the implication on Nigeria future is that we shall not be able to change our leader through constitutional means that is through the ballot boxes. Atiku is a fighter for democracy and he’s among the leaders of APC we want him to do something about evil scientific rigging that is going in thiscountry particularly in Osun State election on 9-August -2014.


    Ogbeni rauf Adesoji is the best candidate for that sit again, nobody can be compare to him…. No bad records for Rauf.
    He is not a murderer, not a killer, not an assassination, not corrupted.

    Come and see wot he did in d last 4 years compare with others…….
    We implore you to vote for our man dat have vision for the people of Osun
    not d pple without intellectual…..

    I can’t wait to see him back…….
    No vacancy at Abere anymore, tell them to wait till 2018.

    Well said Atiku, Ogheni Aregbesola is the best candidate to lead Osun people. He has done excellently well in education, youth empowerment name it in the last four years and I believe if given the mandate again will make Osun state one of the best in terms of infrastructure and otherwise.
    Ogheni is a wise choice and I stand solidly behind Atiku on this. Osun people should come out in mass and vote for Aregbesola on the 10 of this month and protect your votes against rigging by Pdp and Omisore.
    Long live Osun state!
    Long live APC !
    Long live Atiku Abubakar !!
    Long live Gov. Aregbesola and the good people of Osun state!!

    Great support coming from a wonderful in-law, Aregbesola truly deserve a second term, he has served with so much passion in improving the livelihood and education standard of his people. we just hope the PDP-led Federal Government and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, allow the people’s wish to reign in the governorship election.
    APC is the party for change and prosperity!
