The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomhole, says Osun state does not need a governor who would turn the government house to a disco place.
Oshiomhole said this during the APC governorship rally in Osogbo, the state capital, on Tuesday in what appeared to be a swipe at Senator Ademola Adeleke.
Adeleke, a governorship candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is renowned for his dancing ability, which earned him the nickname ‘dancing senator’.
Taking a swipe at the Osun west lawmaker, the APC National Chairman said governance is serious business and not for dancers.
Oshiomhole said APC governorship candidate Gboyega Oyetola, was coming in to continue the ”progressive works” of Rauf Aregbesola, the outgoing governor of the state.
His words: “These are very trying times for our country; we need people who are competent not apprentice, we need people who can manage finances, we need people who know how to generate and that is where I believe Oyetola will have an advantage over any other person that is contesting the same office,” he said.
“He is a successful person in the private sector where the real resources are.
“I understand two days ago they had a debate and one of the aspirants was doing ‘skelewu’ as the debate was going on and when they asked him, he say motor break down.
“May the government of Osogbo never break down, and it will not break down if it hadn’t broken down under Aregbesola, it will not break down under Oyetola.
“God forbid a partying governor that will turn the government house to a disco house. Governance is serious business and not for dancers. In times like this, we need men with brain; Oyetola is the man with the brain, times like this we need men with passion for their state, Oyetola’s passion for Osun state and for Nigeria is not in doubt.
“We need people of character, people of conviction and my brother, Oyetola, is an embodiment of all these.”
