Osun State Governor, Chief Rauf Aregbesola has said that people of Iwo should hold the erstwhile Secretary to the State government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti responsible for any complaint about lwo political backwardness.
Adeoti the governorship candidate of the ADP in the forthcoming election resigned from the government only recently after failing to get the party ticket.
But Governor Aregbesola campaigning in Iwo hometown of Adeoti, said that if indigenes have complaints, they should hold the former Secretary responsible.
The Governor disclosed that all efforts made to assist Iwo politically were thwarted by Alhaji Adeoti.
Governor Aregbesola said that shortly after the demise of the late Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke , he called Alhaji Adeoti to offer Iwo the slot for the vacant Senatorial seat but without making any consultation, the erstwhile SSG declined the offer saying that what Iwo wanted was governorship.
Aregbesola explained that being a Senator would have put Iwo in a better position to go for the governorship, adding that all efforts made to enlighten him proved abortive.
Addressing the huge crowd that thronged the rally asked rhetorically “who is to blame?
He argued that with the exit of Alhaji Adeoti from the progressive family, Iwo would now witness a tremendous political growth.
The governor enjoined the good people of Iwoland not to be pushed into the opposition by their son whose only interest was in self development as against the development of his people.
Other speakers at the rally included Alhaji Gafar Alani Rabiu, Chief Abiola Ogundokun, among others, all spoke about the need for Iwo to vote massively for the APC so as not to be relegated to the background.
Earlier, the APC Candidate, Alhaji Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola pledged that Iwo would be accorded a priority in the provision of Infrastructure, if voted into power.
A member of the National Campaign Committee of the APC Honourable Akintayo Gafar Amere, Dr Najeem Folasayo Salam, Alhaji Salinsile Rasak were among prominent people who witnessed the event.
