The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, on Tuesday, told the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, that he is welcome into the state and can visit him at the Government House anytime.
He said despite party differences, he would ensure Osun remains home for every progressive, particularly Argebesola, who was a former governor of the state.
Speaking at the inauguration of Ilesa Passport Front Office and Production Centre, Adeleke assured the minister of his commitment on build on his legacies and complete some projects initiated by the ex-governor.
The governor said, “Mr. Minister, I am assuring you that this is your state, nobody can chase you away. This is your state, you are welcome anytime. Even, you can come around to the government house. When I complete all of the structures I am currently working on at the government house, I will personally invite you to commission them.
“No matter the party you are, if you are progressive in as much as you are doing what the people want. When he was governor, he loved the people and the people loved him. All the projects Ogbeni left were abandoned for years. I promised the people during my campaign that I am going to continue the projects. That is what I am doing.”
Reacting, Aregbesola commended the governor for attending the event even without official invitation.
“I am very grateful for your presence Governor Ademola Adeleke. Without making a personal call to him, he chose to honour us with his physical presence and that of everybody in the Governor’s office,” Aregbesola said.
