I’ll devote more time to politics – Aregbesola

Immediate past Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, says he will be devoting more time to politics and will soon go on a statewide tour to sensitise the people.

Aregbesola, who is also a former governor of Osun State, commended the state government for keeping the state safe, adding that the move had encouraged social interactions amongst residents in the state.

While speaking during a grand luncheon in his honour in Osogbo, the immediate past minister said all the activities organised to welcome him back to the state after completing his tenure took place in a peaceful atmosphere.

He said, “Osun State Government, we belong to a different party to the one controlling the government presently. They are in the PDP and we belong to the APC. But they were not scared to allow us to hold our events.

“They received us with love and joy. No problem whatsoever. No firing of gunshots. We were not subjected to any form of intimidation. We appreciate the state government.

“Now, I am back to full politics. I will devote more time to politics. We will start moving around our communities to sensitise our people.”

Chairman of the Planning Committee for the programme and former Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, Dr Najeem Salaam, in his speech, praised Aregbesola for his leadership qualities.
