It Was Laughable For People To Try And Rope Me Into Osun State politics – Adesina
Tuesday July 26, 2022
The Special Advised to President Buhari on Media has described as laughable some people who tried to rope him into Osun State politics, as the gubernatorial election held few weeks ago.
Adesina stated that they first came up with the news that Femi Adesina had lost his Ward to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and he was wondering Which Femi Adesina?
“Out of curiosity, I checked. The APC had, indeed, won my ward, in the Post Office area of Ipetumodu by 176 to PDP’s 130 votes. But it didn’t matter. It just shows how heinous and petty some people can be.”
“Let me start with some clarifications. I’m from Osun State, and my homestead is Ipetumodu, in Ife North Local Government Area. And I am not Osun in Diaspora. I was born in Osogbo, capital of the State, when my father was Principal of St Charles Grammar School in the 1960s.”
He described himself as a Buharist, a firm believer in the ideals of President Buhari and not a registered member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“My position is this. I work for an APC government, and it is my preferred party. But member? Not so. I have always rooted for good APC candidates and I would have loved if Governor Gboyega Oyetola had won in Osun last weekend. I’d known him since he was Chief of Staff to the former Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. They were both at the reception held for me in my town by the then Kabiyesi, when I was appointed media adviser to the President in 2015. Gov Oyetola had been focused, sure-footed.” he added.
