#Lobatan: “A vote for Mimiko is a vote against the Yoruba race” – Rauf Aregbesola

by Isi Esene

The Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has denied claims by the opposition that the former Lagos State Governor and leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is backing the candidacy of Rotimi Akeredolu, for the governorship election because of what is in it for him financially.

The Osun governor said this at the ACN campaign in Ondo Town to rally support for the Akeredolu candidacy. He said Tinubu has never demanded for money from any of his proteges.

Aregbesola said Tinubu “never asked for money from any of his proteges”.

“We begged Mimiko not to toe a different path but he did. He lied that Tinubu is after Ondo funds.

“Even though everything I am is because of Tinubu, he never asked for anything in return. In fact, I’m the one who still collects money from him,” he said.

He reportedly urged the electorate to vote for Rotimi Akeredolu saying a vote for him is essentially a vote for the Yoruba race.

“You will be voting for the Yoruba race by voting for the ACN. This election will determine whether you are concerned about the development of Yorubaland and the country generally,” Aregbesola said.

According to him, “It would be unheard of for Ondo to be ruled by a party different from the other states of the South-West.”

  1. I wonder how democracy which should be ideological is reduced to petty tribalism in this day and age! It only proves that tribal politics which Awolowo introduced in nigeria through the carpet crossing incident is growing stronger. In an age when Obama a blackman won the presidency of America based on ideological democracy it is a shame that some pathological and primitive tribalists still see democracy as a tribal game. No wonder nothing works in nigeria!
