OSUN State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has called on the people of Burkina Faso not to allow military rule after the exit of Blaise Compaore.

Aregbesola charged the Burkinabes to carry the revolution that ousted Compaore to its logical conclusion by forming a national government that will conduct election in the shortest time possible.

This was even as the Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, called on all stakeholders in the Nigerian project to get their acts together and ensure that a good leader is elected for the country in 2015.

Aregbesola who spoke at a Victory Colloquium at the Eko Hotel, Lagos, said the Burkina Faso situation was a signal to Nigerians to gird their loins and prepare for the February 2015 general elections.

He said the organisation of elections will not come easy as the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will want to use force it could muster to stay in power.

While decrying the militarisation of election and Federal Government’s lawlessness and impunity against political opposition in Nigeria, Aregbesola warned political office holders to comport themselves to civil rule so as not to give the military any excuse to take power as it is no longer fashionable for military coup in Africa.
