OsunDecides: Aregbesola Bruised the Head of Tyranny to Claim Victory- Tinubu

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Lagos state on Sunday said that Rauf Argebesola bruised the head of tyranny to claim victory in Saturday's governorship election in Osun State; The Nation reported. While congratulating Aregbesola, Tinubu said, "Your victory is the victory of good leadership over a leadership with tyrannical tendencies. You and the people of the state of Osun have sent a clear and unambiguous message to all usurpers and individuals who exploit power to abuse and deny the people their rights" "The lessons from Osun abides. We should never take for granted what we have else the gangsters in power will forcibly take it from us . What happened in Osun was abominable. The massing of the military and over sixty thousand security men to intimidate and harrass a peaceful people is the sign of an unsecure government and party. "It is a pre – condition to manipulate and perpetrate electoral fraud. Under any democracy, there can be no moral or political justification for the security armada against our party leaders and followers in Osun. The implications for our democracy fortels of dire consequences. But the APC and its vast membership nationwide will not sit idly by and allow a band of gangsters determine our future simply because they happen to be in privileged positions. "Osun has demonstrated that it is possible to confront them. On our part, we accept this challenge. Aregbesola runs a government that places primacy on a social welfare philosophy that pursues vigorously the vision of socio – economic empower ment and developmental ethos rooted in the progressive orientation of the Yoruba nation. The people of Osun are lucky to have him as their governor and for a time such as this. "Our Osun victory reignites and marks the next phase of taking Nigeria back. Osun re-energises us to the common good, a commitment to the people and an unbending commitment to ensure Nigeria is governed better,” Tinubu said.
