The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has commended former governor Rauf Aregbesola, for his achievements as Minister of Interior.
According to Adeleke, the people of Osun State love Aregbesola and he is free to come to the state unfettered.
He added that he was completing unfinished projects from Aregbesola’s administration.
Adeleke spoke on Tuesday in Ilesa, at the inauguration of the Ilesa Passport Front Office and Production Centre of the Nigeria Immigration Service in Ilesa, Osun State.
Adeleke said, “No matter the party you are, if you are a progressive, you are a progressive, if you are doing what the people want. When he (Aregbesola) was governor, he loved the people and the people loved him. All the projects Ogbeni left, it was abandoned for years. I promised the people during my campaign that I was going to continue the projects, that is what I am doing.
“As a civilised person, no matter the party you are, you will always love progress. That is what I will always continue to ensure that all developmental projects are continued. As a federal minister from the state, we are proud of your achievements and we will continue to be proud of you.
Mr Minister, I am assuring you that this is your state, nobody can chase you away. This is your state, you are welcome at anytime. Even, you can come around to the Government House. When I complete all of the structures I am currently working on at the Government House, I will personally invite you to inaugurate it.”
