Incumbent Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, has described his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, as the best candidate to succeed him.
Aregbesola made this known through the Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy of the APC in Osun State.
Speaking in Ile-Ife during his visit to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, at his palace at the commencement of the governorship campaign of Oyetola, Aregbesola described the APC candidate as one who is well equipped and knowledgeable about governance.
“Oyetola has justified his capacity and capability as a man of impeccable character and worthwhile personality who remains dogged and forthright to all policies that had impacted positively the lives of the citizens.
“We are not in doubt about Oyetola’s competence and ability. He is calm and much more reserved. He knows the job and he will serve our people. He will advance the development programme of our party.”
Oyetola said his administration would prioritise the welfare of the people and the traditional rulers and as well work assiduously to advance traditional institution, culture and tourism.
