Osun Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has issued an Executive order to protect ex-Governor Rauf Aregbesola within the State
The Executive order is the seventh by Adeleke since he was sworn-in as Governor on November 28, 2022.
During the political feud between Aregbesola and his successor, Adegboyega Oyetola, the former alleged that the latter was all out to chase him to stay off the State.
Adeleke, during his address at the commissioning of Ilesa Passport Front Office and Production Centre of Nigeria Immigration Service in Osun State, assured Aregbesola, who was also at the programme that his security is guaranteed in the State.
According to him: “No matter the party you are, a progressive is a progressive. If you are doing what the people want… when Aregbesola was the Governor, he loved Osun, he loves his people, all the projects he did for his people were abandoned, I promised myself during the election campaign, that I will complete them. I have started doing that.
“No matter the party you belong to when you see progress you must key into them. Aregbesola is the man of the people and I will continue with the project.
“I am assuring you this is your State. I am issuing an executive order, this is your state, nobody can take you away. You are welcome at any time…very soon I will move to Government House but I am going to fix it up a little bit. The magnificent building that you started I am going to complete it and you will do the commissioning, you will be the first person to sleeping in there.”
Aregbesola, speaking about the establishment of the passport office, noted the surge in the number of applications necessitates the establishment of more passport front offices across the country, which is borne out of the determination of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to further make the process seamless.
