The political aspiration of the Osun State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, received a boost yesterday after the Boripe Local Council threw its weight behind his aspiration.
Addressing a news conference in Iragbiji, Oba Rasheed Ayotunde, the Aragbiji of Iragbiji described Oyetola as a responsible, God-fearing and capable person who he said is fit to be governor of the state.
Oba Ayotunde, who is the chairman of the traditional council, said that if elected, the APC flag bearer would address the challenges of workers’ salaries and would not retrench workers.
He said, “Alhaji Isiaka Adegboyega Oyetola is our son, and we affirm that he is very intelligent, industrious, people friendly and full of capacity to serve.
“We have interviewed his family background, his neighbours, friends and acquaintances, other obas, chiefs and members of the public and found him most qualified to take Osun to a greater height.
“We know that he is a financial expert and shrewd administrator who is the best to continue the developmental works which Gov. Aregbesola had been doing.”
