The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed appreciation to the Christian community in the state for its public acknowledgement of Aregbesola‘s outstanding performance in improving the quality of lives of the people in a relatively short period of four years.
The appreciation was expressed in a statement signed by the party’s Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi released in Osogbo on Monday, 14th July, 2014.
According to the statement, the Christian community’s endorsement is coming “in spite of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) spirited attempt to incite Christian religious sentiments against Governor Rauf Aregbesola whose towering achievements in governance continue to haunt the opposition as they strain to deny and sabotage the good work of the Governor.
“The more viciously the PDP and its governorship candidate incite the Christian fold against Aregbesola, the more ardently the majority of Christians commend the governor for his unprecedented work in the state.
Oyatomi stated that “the latest of such commendations came from the Community of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) at its headquarters in Gbomi, Osogbo on Sunday, 13th July, 2014, in an address delivered by Evang. Wale Opadele.
In a “wonderful testimony” of the Church, the Officiating Minister revealed that in the opinion of CAC, “chief among the achievements recorded by Aregbesola’s government in the last four years was dredging of Okooko river in 2010.
“Before then”, the Evangelist continued, “the overflow of the river nearly swept away the Church. It is by divine providence and the efforts of the Aregbesola administration that we (the church) are comfortably seated in this auditorium to worship today,” the CAC said.
The Christian fold of the CAC denomination also acknowledged the “sterling achievements recorded by the governor in all sectors of the economy, including the quality road network all over the state.”
The church further stressed that “Ogbeni’s government has made (such) indelible marks in all areas of development,” that future generations will recognize as “spectacular” because they touch the lives of the citizenry.
As if to neutralize PDP’s religious propaganda, the Christ Apostolic Church further declared, “Ogbeni (Rauf Aregbesola) is passionately dedicated to practical development and growth throughout the nooks and crannies of the state ….we cannot thank him enough for (his) hard-to-beat record of achievements within a relatively short stay in government.”
When you add this to the statements of Pastor Adeboye of the Redeem Christian Church of God, the glowing tribute of Bishop Oyedepo of Winners Chapel and other Christian leaders who had come to Osun, seen things for themselves and given glory to God for the services rendered by the government of Rauf Aregbesola, the picture becomes clearer.
These top-level Christians’ endorsement of Ogbeni thus exposed the dishonesty, fallacy and duplicity of PDP’s satanic stance that Aregbesola has done nothing for Osun and or that the Governor has been unfavorably disposed to Christians in the state, the APC said.
