Former Osun state governor, Rauf Aregbesola has accused his estranged political godfather, Bola Tinubu of double standards in Osun’s party affairs, vowing to thwart Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s bid for reelection.
According to the Interior minister, Mr Tinubu orchestrated former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s failure to seek reelection, with the party against his second-term bid.
“That was how it was sometime in Lagos when a governor rejected by the party wanted to contest a second term. The party refused. It is the same today, and familiarity will not stop that from happening,” Mr Aregbesola said to a group of party faithful in Ijebu-Jesha ahead of the party’s primaries slated for Saturday ahead of the July 16 governorship election.
Mr Oyetola enjoys the support of Mr Tinubu, amid Mr Aregbesola’s faction of the APC in Osun is kicking against Mr Oyetola’s candidacy.
