The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on well meaning citizens – especially its supporters – to observe a three-day fasting and prayers from Tuesday, 25th November, 2014 for a smooth, peaceful and dignified 2nd term inauguration of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola as governor of the state.
In a special appeal issued by the party and signed by the Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi, in Osogbo on Monday, 24th November, 2014, the APC said that the Thursday event will climax an epic period in the political history of Nigeria when the unassailable will of the people, against all odds, triumphed in democratically determining who their leader should be.
“That leader who the people of Osun have democratically elected as governor for the next four years in office is Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
“Osun needs all the divine protection it can get against the machinations of people sworn to evil and brewed in violence, so that everything goes well,” the party said.
According to the APC, “the people’s will in the State of Osun will always prevail against the kind of unofficial terrorism which Osun lived through pre and post the August 9 governorship election which confirmed a 2nd term for Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
“We therefore cannot afford to be complacent in a situation where lawlessness, impunity and reckless misuse of power appear to be the order of the day in a country that is precariously sliding into evil, darkness and man’s inhumanity to man only for political, selfish and irresponsible desperation for power”.
