Progressives e-Group (the number one online media platform in the state of Osun) salutes the courage and objective analysis of an elder statesman; present member of People Democratic Party Board of Trustee and former Minister of Transport – Chief Ebenezer Babatope on current affairs programme of Rave FM this morning called “Frank Talk”.
Chief Ebenezer Babatope famously said this morning after a question was directed at him and we quote; “Rauf Aregbesola is a performer. The young man has done very well. Aregbesola plans well. Go round the state, Osogbo and all other places, kudos to him. I am saying this not because I am an Ijesha man like him”. Babatope even said further towards the tail end of the programme that; “I am a PDP person but it will be an easy task for PDP to unseat him because he knows how to use power”.
We see this public admission of ingenuity of administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola by this very cerebral PDP chieftain as honest assessment and reflection of general feelings of most of Osun citizens both home and abroad. It is only a person with bias mind and double standard that will not acknowledge the developmental drive of this present government both in human and infrastructural perspectives.
To Osun PDP, we urge you to take note of this objective evaluation from an elder who have seen it all in all measurements. We have no inhibition in our minds that the present adventure of PDP vis-a-vis their quest to take over power from this present administration in the September 22nd, 2018 governorship election as an utopian desire and an exercise in futility.
