A public commentator and social crusader in Osun, Engr. Oyedeji Abioye has described one of the aspirants, contesting on the platform of All Progressive Congress APC), Engr. Adelere Oriolowo as the best successor to Gov. Rauf Aregbesola.
Abioye, in an interview with our correspondent over the weekend, said going by the combination of expertise, and wealth of administrative knowledge, which the state needs to sustain Aregbesola’s legacy, Oriolowo remains the most qualified.
He maintained that the “infrastructural revolution” embarked upon by the Aregbesola’s administration must be carefully sustained by an individual who is well equipped with technical prowess and administrative savvy.
Abioye opined that for Oriolowo to have served in different capacities as a senior civil servant without a negative record makes him a man with rare integrity and valour.
“Electorate in Osun must get it right and think deeply of the choice in the forthcoming governorship election, I am convinced the state is in need of an individual like Oriolowo, who has carved a niche for himself in civil and public service.
“No any right-thinking person will disagree with the assertion that Aregbesola has changed the dynamics of governance in the state, his legacy of transformation remains unprecedented, hence the need to get a worthy successor for him.
“Without any fear of contradiction, Oriolowo perfectly meets the description of what is needed in the state to sustain this legacy and move to a greater height, we must not make mistake.
“We must also de-emphasize the issue of politics as the sole determinant of politics, competence must be our priority, not politics, it is the preference for competence that will take us to our Eldorado.
“I believe the performance of this man as the Osun State Project Coordinator of Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAMP) has eloquently narrated his commitment to duty, developmental drive, selflessness, and high level of integrity,” Abioye said.
He, however, advised the ruling APC to create enabling an environment for aspirants to showcase their mettle saying such will make the best candidate that will successfully fly the flag of the party to emerge.
