WE SAY NO TO NINJAS. The All Progressives Congress, APC, has slammed the PDP Governorship candidate for Osun State election, Iyiola Omisore, over his use of masked gunmen as security men during his ongoing electioneering campaign for the August 9 election in the state. In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said the only reason Mr. Omisore could have resorted to hiring ‘ninjas’ for protection is because he is afraid of his own shadows. It wondered how a man who wants to rule a state will be afraid to move freely among the same people whose votes he is canvassing, saying the PDP candidate should emulate Governor Rauf Aregbesola, who is barely distinguishable from the ordinary citizens of the state. ”Every month, Governor Aregbesola leads the people of the state in a jogging exercise on the streets, during which he mixes freely with them. Not once has a ‘ninja’ been spotted behind him in the name of security. ”During his ongoing ele ...
AFTER THE BOMB, NOW PANDEMONIUM AND BLOODSHED! AS PDP THUGS ATTACK APC MEMBERS IN IFE There was pandemonium in Ile Ife Osun State Monday as political thugs believed to be loyalists of the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party Mr. Iyiola Omisore unleashed attacks on members of the All Progressives Congress. In the ensuing attack no fewer than five APC loyalist s including a heavily pregnant woman were wounded when the hoodlums laid ambush for the APC members during their campaign rally around Gbodo area of the ancient city. Leaders of the APC including Senator representing Osun East senatorial district Jide Omoworare, the member of House of Representatives for Ife Federal Constituency Mr. Rotimi Makinde, Osun commissioner for Home Affairs Culture and tourism Mr. Sikiru Ayedun Special Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola on Youth and Special Needs Comrade Biyi Odunlade, Member of the State House of Assembly Mr. Bamisayemi and a host of others had led other members in continuation of the party’s mobilis ...
PDP is Nigeria Goliath & APC is David. De rest use your imagination. Governor Rauf Aregbesola is a child of God accept nothing than victory
Ekiti State election has really taught APC a great lesson. I read today that: *Fashola gives automatic employment to 200 graduates, * Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State is returning christian schools he forcefully merged with muslim schools to their original owners. * Also, the comrade come'go and die' governor ofEdo state has cancelled the teachers competency test he introduced and started recalling sacked teachers. * APC governors and the party men are now trying to reposition their stand on their sponsorship of Boko Haram. This is how democracy should be. Neglect the wish of the people and watch them tell you sovereignty resides with them.One misconception APC thugs have is that because few Nigerians are agrieved of PDP and the emergence of GEJ, they are the next party to reckon with and the biggest stronghold to power. PDP governor's and ministers, watch out come 2015
Former Osun State governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, at the weekend, held a crucial parley with his supporters in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on issues bordering on his struggle to reclaim his position as the national secretary of the party through the judiciary. It was authoritatively gathered that Oyinlola, who was under intense pressure by the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to team up with the incumbent Governor Rauf Aregbesola to ensure victory for APC in the governorship election, was said to have informed his loyalists that his decision to leave or stay in PDP rested on President Goodluck Jonathan. The impeccable source, who was part of a meeting held at the Okuku country home of the former governor on Saturday evening, said “Oyinlola informed us that he would remain committed to the PDP, regardless of his travails over the protracted battle on national secretaryship, which is now before the Supreme Court in Abuja.” According to the source, the former govern ...

We rush to celebrate people here. However, that is not to say there are people here not worthy of being celebrated, no matter how few they are. Defeated Ekiti State governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who publicly conceded to his challenger, Mr. Ayo Fayose, merely demonstrated how his long stay abroad, studying and working, reflected in his conduct. Of course, his acquaintances over there as well as others who have accepted him as one whose worldview is broad, would have been hugely disappointed if he had behaved to the contrary. Therefore, the celebration of Fayemi's acceptance of electoral defeat should be done with the utmost caution. We will need to see how he, as a leader of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State, is able to reorganise the party and shore up its base ahead of wresting power from the Peoples Democratic Party to which Fayose belongs in 2018. We will also need to see how far he can hold members of the APC and drive belief into them such that no single party member defects to the PDP as h ...

I am satisfied, even though John Kayode Fayemi of the APC, didn't win the yesterday's gubernatorial election, in Ekiti State. Which he accepted in good fate, by congratulating the PDP candidate Ayodele Fayose, over his victory at the polls. I am happy that he also used the medium to show that Politics shouldn't be seen as a do or die affair. And this has also made the APC, to be seen as a party of Peace, by the way he accepted the election results, even though I felt that he should have taken the case to court. I want to also use this medium, to wish Ondo state Governor Rauf Aregbesola, victory as Ondo state go to polls next month.

I BELIEVE PDP RESCUE MISSION IS THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE TO AREGBESOLA - AKOGUN LERE OYEWUMI, DG, PDP RESCUE MISSION CAMPAIGN The Director General of the PDP Governoship Campaign Organisation in Osun State, Akogun Lere Oyewumi has described the rescue mission of the People's Democratic Party as the only alternative to the bastardisation of all sectors of Osun society by Governor Rauf Aregbesola . Speaking with IOO Communication and Media team at his residence in Ikire, the Director General affirmed that the rescue mission contained deliverables which will meet the aspirations of Osun people and restore lost faith in education, health, infrastructure ,agriculture, public service and public finance among others . "Our people from 1st of May have decided that the rescue mission is the only alternative to the Aregbesola led emergency state of Osun which the APC has plunged Osun into. Our people have no doubt in their mind that the alternative they are yearning for is here. " We will go round ,house to house ...
WHY I LEFT THE APC I declared for the APC in June last year in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State well before the party was registered by INEC. I formally joined the party, amidst great pomp, ceremony and fanfare, on 7th February 2014 in my hometown Ile-Ife and I registered my membership with the party on that day. The registration was done outside the Ooni's palace and it was done in the prescence of the media, numerous party leaders in the state, including Hon. Rotimi Makinde, who represents Ile-Ife at the Federal House, and a number of key leaders of the APC in the state and Ife-Ife including Chief Akantioke and Alhaji Soko Adewoyin, the former Deputy Governor of Osun State. After registering we proceeded to pay a courtesy call on my traditional ruler, the Ooni of Ife, and from there I went to spend a few days with Governor Rauf Aregbesola who, together with Governor Kayode Fayemi, I am close to and I consider to be friends. I have stated these facts and set the record straight due to the fact that Alhaji Lai Moh ...
NIGERIA’S High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK), Alhaji Dalhatu Tafida, Friday joined other Nigerians in eulogising the late emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero. Mourning the death of Alhaji Ado Bayero, the 13th Emir of Kano, Tafida told the Europe Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in London that Bayero’s death was “a big loss to Nigeria and the nation’s traditional ruling council.” The envoy said the late Bayero, who reigned for 51 years, contributed immensely to the development of the nation’s traditional ruling council. According to him, he is respected not because of the size of his emirate but due to his humility, courage and selfless service. Similarly, a cross section of Nigerians in London, who spoke to NAN, described the late Bayero as a father and symbol of unity and strength, which Kano emirate represents. NAN recalls that Bayero, 84, left London last month after a three-month medical visit. Also Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun has expressed regrets over the ...
Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi supports Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola with free album. I was amazed last week when a friend comrade Lukman Olarewaju Bello told me that the Juju turned Gospel singer waxed a free album to eulogize and canvas Ogbeni for a second term. I was amazed 'cos I've never listened to Chief Fabiyi's album praising a politician. I quickly beg for a copy of the album which comrade Bello obliged me. Listening to the music I simply dof my cap for Rauf Aregbesola: An agent of positive change. Ebenezer Obey neither disappoints none falters on his lines of advocacy as he rolled out the drums for a man of alternative perceptive in governance, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. Though, Obey’s brand of music is simultaneously complex and elemental, traditional and more prosaic to hearing. Obey’s talking drums establish a propulsive rhythm pattern; his guitar lays another jittery rhythm over that, as chanted harmonies join in, and so on with the rest of the 17-piece ensemble each time he mounts the mus ...

Okada riders give Aregbesola conditions THE seeming determination of Governor Rauf Aregbesola to garner more votes to enhance his re-election in office come August 9, 2014 gubernatorial poll may have taken a new dimension as traffic managers under its Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme (OYES) are now implementing his alleged directives on relaxed traffic rules for commercial motorcyclists, otherwise known as “Okada riders”. Findings by the Sunday Tribune indicated that the governor, some weeks back held marathon meeting with leadership and members of Association of Commercials Motorcyclists Riders of Nigeria (ACOMORON), in Osogbo, where they tabled their demands, among others before him as conditions for voting for All Progressive Congress (APC) in the forthcoming election. Before the parley with ACOMORON members took place, traffic managers had dutifully enforced traffic rules, which prohibited commercials cyclists from carrying more than two passengers and riding motorbikes without safety helmets.

Workers’ rallies: PDP says Aregbesola’s exit imminent THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Osun State chapter, on Friday, described the staging of two parallel rallies by workers in the state to commemorate May Day celebration on Thursday in Osogbo as a signal of the end of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s administration. In a statement signed by the party’s chairman, Alhaji Gani Olaoluwa, the PDP contended that “It is unfortunate that a dog destined to go astray will develop a deaf attitude.” The statement reads in part, “History is already repeating itself in Osun concerning the way workers, in their wisdom, taught former Governor Bisi Akande a lesson,” stressing that, “Since Aregbesola has never been part of Osun, he can as well ask for newspaper reports on the scenario that led to Akande’s fall.” Reacting to the PDP’s statement, the All Progressive Congress’ (APC’s) director of publicity, research and strategy, in Osun, Mr Kunle Oyatomi, argued that, “It takes a stupid politici ...
AREGBESOLA & SERIES OF O'DECEIT Nevertheless, i've achieved my own mission and if they face lots of difficulties in the bank,they will sit at home.~Aregbesola Mid last month was another display of dubious act of the outgoing Governor of the state of Osun when he launched a financial assistance of small scale loan for selected party women forum in the state in conjuction with GURUMI finance house of Lagos. In the full glare of everybody at the venue of the event, Governor Rauf Aregbesola announced to have disbursed invisible to all beneficiaries which it was later discovered to be scam. However, it will interest you to realized that Aregbesola used the gathering for just a political gain in which non of the beneficiaries till date are able to cash their cheques as a result the weakness in state of the state account when the financing house realized that Osun State is financially sick.
APC is a disgrace to modern democracy. They told GEJ to stop all his PDP rallies until Borno school girls they arranged their kidnap to discredit GEJ's govt are rescued. They are however busy organising state congress in Adamawa and Lagos. After reading the outcome of their Adamawa congress, I couldn't help but conclude that APC is a disgrace to democracy. According to the result, 340 delegates were present but about 450 voted and a winner emerged. What a party. Is it their guber primary election in Osun State where Governor Rauf Aregbesola emerged winner whereas the opponent got a zero vote. Where is this result obtainable in the world? Does it mean the opponent didn't vote for himself or what? Whatever they accuse PDP they're guilty 10 times. Is it impunity? Go to their various states you would see the height of impunity. In Rivers state, a federal high court in Portharcourt ruled that the elected chairman of Obio/Akpo local govt sacked by Amaechi should be reinstated together with the entire executive, ...

‘Our roads will last more than 15 years’ By SEUN AKIOYE Sabitu Amuda, an engineer and Special Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola on Works, spoke with SEUN AKIOYE What is the philosophy behind the road constructions being undertaken in Osun now? Simply to increase the revenue generation of the state. How is that possible? It’s simple, people are saying that we are constructing roads and at the same time talking about revenue generation, the amount of money we have spent so far in the construction of the roads in the state remains. The only percentage that goes out cannot be said to be five percent. There are foreign companies working on the road and definitely they must be returning profits to their home country? Thank you, when I say five percent, I am talking about salaries only and that is for those workers who are being paid as foreigners. When it comes to the materials being used, except for a small percentage, all of them are sourced from this state. Granite and sand are found here. The cemen ...

Aregbesola and the antics of a Conscienceless Individual by Olufemi Lawson 2 years after, the governor of Osun State, "Engr" Rauf Aregbesola is yet to pay any retirement benefit to the Teachers who were massively "sacked" among other workers by his government in the year 2012. These teachers some of whom are either aged or bread winners of their various families have remained subjected to varying degrees of hardship due to the inability and unpreparedness of the government of Governor Rauf Aregbesola to fulfill the required obligation of the government to those who fell into this category. It should also be recalled that over the past few months, Osogbo the Osun State capital had been rocked by several protests embarked upon by the State's pensioners at large due to the non payment of pensions to any category of retiree since the inception of the administration of the Salamic government of "Engr" Aregbesola in 2010. In the face of the agony of the retirees, the artisan have not been spared in the attack o ...

The students in a reasonable manner, troop out in multitude to protest the senseless action of the mr governor but to the supprise of the good people of the state, Aregbesola ordered his hunting securities personnels to chase away the state future when Kabiru is milking away the public fund in grand style even without any threat.

RETURN TO THE BASIC OF FAITH AREGBESOLA URGES CHRISTIANS; Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun on Sunday made a passionate appeal to the Christian community across the country to return to the original basis of all faith which says “love thy neighbour as thy self”. This was just as the governor, Saturday night, said those linking him to any plot against Christianity missed the point because the success his father had early in life could be traced to a job he got in the construction of the St. John’s Cathedral, Iloro, Ilesa; thereby making him one of the beneficiaries of the Christian faith. Governor Aregbesola, while speaking at the St. Benedict Catholic Cathedral, Osogbo, presided over by Bishop Rev Paul Awowole, said no faith preached hatred.

Lol! Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola Takes Selfie Photo: Lolz! What do you guys think?
The Government of the State of Osun under the leadership of Governor Rauf Aregbesola will continue to provide for the needs of vulnerable children in the state in order to make life better and more meaningful for them.
Before it is too late in Osun WHEN Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola was proclaimed as the validly elected Governor of Osun State on November 27, 2010, majority of Osun State indigenes, including myself were happy that a new face of political leadership would replace Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola’s administration, the self- acclaimed Omoluabi of his era. As a matter of fact, former Governor Oyinlola is a gifted diplomat and well- cultured Prince from Okuku. In terms of humility, sense of humour, attentiveness and power of oration, Prince Oyinlola has never been found wanting. Unfortunately, about seven years of Oyinlola’s tenure as Executive Governor of Osun State could be summarily described as a fiasco. Funny enough, the Okuku Prince did not realise the true feelings of the majority until after he left the exalted political office. I want to remind our incumbent performing Governor Rauf Aregbesola about a popular Yoruba proverb that says “Oba mewa igba mewa, enikan ko le lo ile aye gbo”, (meaning, dif ...

DISCUSS! Sent by our reader Adeolu Morenikeji Taofeek: If a young person were to become President of Nigeria, whom would you choose: 1) Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, 2) Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, 3) Governor Adams Oshiomole of Edo State, 4) Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State, as the APC presidential candidate? Why?
OSUN ASSEMBLY PASSES N234 Billion BUDGET State House of Assembly has passed the appropriation bill of N234, 420, 419 to law, tasking the executive arm of government to embark on revenue generation drive that would push the elasticity of the budget implementation to acceptable level. Speaking, Speaker Najeem Salaam stressed that the budget went through surgical operation of collective effort of all stakeholders, a situation that led to the change of figures earlier proposed by Governor Rauf Aregbesola. Speaker Salaam However lamented the geometric dwindling of monthly allocation from the federation account, noting that the excuses given by the Federal Government on the reduced allocation were suspect, unacceptable, and smacked of good governance. According to him: "The national coffer seems to have become an exclusive preserve of the few at the centre who feel the masses are contended with their obscene luxurious lives at the expense of the state, why the excuse of the stolen crude seems to be an escapist ...

HIKE IN PRICE OF OSUN SCHOOL UNIFORM - ALAGBADA FROWN AT TEXTILE DEALERS. Commissioner For Commerce, Cooperatives, Industry and Empowerment, Mr Ismaila Jayeoba- Alagbada has frowned at the violation of laws of the State Government of Osun by ‘the textile dealers in Iwo who illegally increase the price of school uniform in the state. The Commissioner said this while addressing the textile dealers of O’uniform in Jankara market in Iwo recently.

In the same vein, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Commerce, Cooperatives, Industry and Empowerm ...

Ile-Ife Rejects Aregbesola’s Proposed Additional Council Bill The people of Ile-Ife, in Osun State have faulted the proposal for creation of additional Local Government Areas by Governor Rauf Aregbesola now before the state House of Assembly, saying that the approach adopted by the government lacked international application. Briefing newsmen in Ile-Ife yesterday, the President of Ife Action Council, a socio-cultural organisation, Mr. Lawrence Awowoyin noted that the rationale for creating Local Government Councils was purely for development. He maintained that the people of Ife have been badly treated in the proposed Executive bill. The Governor had last December sent a proposal for the creation of additional 27 Council Areas from the existing 30 Local Government Areas and Ife East Area Office, Modakeke-Ife to the state House of Assembly for approval. In the proposal only three additional Council Areas are proposed from the existing four Local Government Areas that make up Ifeland. For instance, Ife .. ...

Nigerian First ladies Are ‘Executive Prisoners’ – Sherifat Aregbesola - Wife of Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State, Sherifat, on Monday described all first ladies in Nigeria as ‘executive prisoners’ because they are forced to live a life imposed on them by virtue of their office. Although the Nigerian constitution does not recognize the title of first lady, reserved for spouses of state governors and the president, it has continued to thrive and most times the office receives government funding for its day-to-day activities. Mrs. Aregbesola, who spoke in an interview with newsmen before the end of the year party she organised for children in Osogbo, the state capital, said contrary to the belief that first ladies were ‘enjoying’, they had no freedom to live the way they liked. Sherifat noted that she, like her counterparts in other states across the federation, embark on some pet projects in order not to be idle throughout their stay at the various Government Houses. She said, “All fir ...

Panic And Confusion As Student Attacks Teacher With Machete. There was anxiety over the state of health of a teacher at the Osogbo Grammar School, Osun State, identified simply as Mr. Olamoyegun, on Thursday as a pupil of the Government Technical College in the town attacked him with a machete Although what led to the attack on the teacher was still sketchy, our correspondent, however, gathered that the pupil pulled a surprise attack on the teacher, making it impossible for him to defend himself. Some pupils of the OGS told our correspondent that the attacker, whose name had yet to be identified, attacked the teacher from the back and inflicted a deep cut on his head with the cutlass. One of the OGS pupils, whose name is withheld for security purpose, said, “I think the person that attacked Mr. Olamoyegun is a cultist. That is what everybody is saying here because he just sneaked behind our teacher and attacked him with the cutlass in his hand. He did not give Mr. Olamoyegun the chance to defend himself ...

controversies 1 days ago While supporters hail Governor Rauf Aregbesola, for transforming Osun State, his opponents describe his three years in office as a colossal waste of time and resources writes FEMI MAKINDE On November 26, 2010, the Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, declared Mr. Rauf Aregbesola winner of the April 14, 2007 Osun State governorship election. The court’s pronouncement brought to an end a three and half year legal tussle over the rightful owner of the people’s mandate to govern the state. As a result of the verdict, the then governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, and the erstwhile ruling Peoples Democratic Party were forced to learn to play the opposition politics for the first time in a state the PDP had ruled for seven years. While many greeted the judgment with applause, others condemned it. Aregbesola served as the Commissioner for Works in Lagos State before his elevation. He left no one in doubt about his preparedness for the task ahead as he came up with a Six-Point Integra . ...

The electoral act 2010 as amended stipulates that electioneering must start 90 days to voting However what is happening in Osun State negates this provision with billboards of Governor Rauf Aregbesola erected in every nook and cranny of the state as well as numerous jingles extolling the virtues of Ogbeni in clear contravention of the electoral act. What is more disturbing is that the Independent National Electoral Commission that All Progressives Congress is condemning over Anambra election seems to be indifferent to what is happening in Osun State. Regrettably, there is a resident electoral commissioner who cannot bark nor bite, thereby projecting INEC as a lame duck This is indeed a bad omen for 2015 election. -Tayo Sanni,

Traditional believers in Osun State yesterday asked Christians and Muslims to stop criticising the education policy of Governor Rauf Aregbesola on the reclassification and merger of public schools. The traditionalists, who spoke through their leader, Chief Kayode Esuleke, in a press conference in Osogbo, said: “We have observed the trend of the argument being canvassed against the new education policy by this set of people and we discovered that it is nothing but a mere hypocrisy and an attempt to sabotage Aregbesola’s efforts at improving education standard in Osun State. “We are not holding sway for the governor; needless to say we are being used by any political party. But as traditional believers whose doctrine is to say, follow and uphold the truth always, Olodumare will not forgive us if we keep quiet in the face of these unwarranted and ill-motivated criticisms from Muslims and Christians on Aregbesola’s education policy. “It has become the style to use religion to fight any government po ...

What's his real name? Is his name Bola? What Is his family name? The Chief Of Staff to Governor Rauf Aregbesola is his blood Brother. He also has an older brother who retired from the Federal Ministry of Foreign affairs. When His real mother died, he didnt go to Osun State.

Suddenly He Came back and said he had a CPC,that's the equivaent of ACCA.He didn't even have an APC, he's a lier" ~ Yoruba Bode George!

UPDATES ON ASUU STRIKE. To Demolish Fakunle Comprehensive High School For Shoprite Mall. Alumni, parents and other education stakeholders in Osun State have begun to remove items they donated to Fakunle Comprehensive High School in Oshogbo, following allegations Governor Rauf Aregbesola plans to demolish the school and replace it with a “Shop Rite” mall. They allege there has been a long battle with the Aregbesola administration over the plan, saying that the governor is serving the interests of his political god-father, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to provide prime space for him to extend Shop Rite, a business he is said to own, to Oshogbo. An alumnus of the school told SaharaReporters that Mr. Tinubu’s interest is what is behind the troubles. “Of all locations in Osun State, only the center that Fakunle High school proudly sits on since over fifty years is what Tinubu wants. Why not develop other areas to stand his business?” alleged the Alumnus. In February, there were pockets of protest by sen ...
Osun State: Still on the Osogbo/Ikirun/Okuku/Ila Odo Road. It is pertinent to call on the Federal Government who is the Client incognito to please urge both his Main Contractor, i.e, Governor Rauf Aregbesola and the Sub- Contractor- Messrs SAMYA Construction Company to expedite action on this project. The slow spate of work on the road as may have been occasioned by the greed and corruption on the part of the assumable client, lack of professionalism and technical knowhow on the part of the Construction Company is inflicting further and more dangerous stress, sorrows and anxieties on the already strangulated people and the economy of the state capital. It is unfortunate that the Governor’s shameful attitude of lack of respect for time frame in everything could be extended to this road work.

OGBENI SHOULD SAVE HIS HEAD AND STOP THROWING WEIGHT BEHIND FRIVOLITIES November 27th is stone throw from today, it marks the third year of Ogbeni Aregbesola reign as a Governor with echoing achievements and by extension the third year that Local government in Osun as being impounded and placed under the control of a few oligarch who are no pride to the All Progressive Congress and the community they hail from. As at today, they cannot march the resources accrued to their respective council areas with what they claimed to have done, they have brought shame and dwindling popularity to the mass that repose trust in the All Progressive Congress as a virile alternative. Gratitude to the Governor for bluntly combating the grasping spate of development that the hitherto government had plague on the state. Ogbeni’s effort in widening the socio-infrastructural facilities must be unflinchingly revered, not forgetting all the ‘O’s initiatives, that as at today, has placed Osun among its contemporaries on the ...

See my fellow youth do not. Believe this cos they all are liars do not allow anybody to use u but be prepared Osun State: SHAME,SHAME, SHAME….Aregbesola,it’s a Big Shame on you!!! Shame is an uncomfortable feeling that you get when you have done something wrong or embarrassing, or when someone close to you has. Shame is an important trait that every human must possess. The lack of it is a dangerous indication of doom. Governor Rauf Aregbesola does not strike me as somebody with the smallest iota of shame. He proved this yesterday at Ibadan, the Oyo State capital where his colleague Governor of that state was commissioning a modern market stalls and Aregbesola was among the invited guests or may I say a leading figure in the group of “clappers” at the occasion. Governor Ajimobi of Oyo State, don’t forget assumed office some seven months after our own Aregbesola has been made Governor by Justice Ayo Salami. Again, Governor Ajimobi will be commissioning the Mokola Roundabout Overhead Bridge. The br ...
