OSOGBO—The Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has described the victory recorded by the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Saturday election as a fulfilment of the vision of the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
This was just as Aregbesola described the outcome of the poll as a watershed in the annals of democratic elections in Nigeria.
The governor in a broadcast to the people of the state noted that the election of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari as president of Nigeria is the culmination of the struggle for the enthronement of a people-driven democratic governance in the country.
Aregbesola reminded Nigerians that Awolowo had in 1983 predicted that the progressive elements in the North and South would one day come together for the liberation of the country.
He pointed out that the progressives have always wanted to come together in the past but their march had always been stopped by cruel fate.
