Clamour for Osun West to produce the next governor in osun state heightened as Aregbesola visits Ede Federal constituency

The quest and scheme by politicians from Osun west senatorial district to produce the next governor especially in the ruling All Progressives Congress became more pronounced during the Goodwill tour of Governor Rauf Aregbesola to Ede, the headquarters of Ede Federal constituency.

The governor had days earlier launched a Goodwill/sensitization visits to the Nine federal constituencies in the state to intimate party faithful on the need to be on guard and get set to battle the Peoples Democratic Party and other political parties in the forthcoming gubernatorial poll.

The visits right from the maiden edition held at Ife to Ilesha and Ila Orangun had been dotted with evident campaign of governorship hopefuls under the banner of the All Progressive Congress.

It was the turn of Ede federal constituency on Wednesday just as party members thronged the venue with one unified agenda; To ask governor Aregbesola to cede the governorship slot to Osun west senatorial district.

Speakers one after the other who unanimous in their demand canvassed, begged and made the governor saw the reasons why it must be the turn of  Osun West to produce the next governor of the state  as they believed that anything outside this, would amount to injustice on the part of the people from the zone because it is only the zone which has produced the governor since.the present political dispensation in 1999.
From the party leader Alhaji Sule Alao, to the Member representing Egbedore state constituency in the state House of Assembly Honourable Abiodun Awolola, all were unanimous in their quest that the party's governorship ticket should be zoned to Osun west.

The clamour got to a point that the slogan of the party was discarded. At the calling of APC, the chanting response of "change" was substituted for the thunderous chorus of "West L'okan" literally meaning it’s the turn of west to produce governor.

 The speaker, Osun state House of Assembly Rt.Honourable Najeem Salam in his address prayed to God to grant Governor Rauf Aregbesola and the Party chairman Prince Gboyega Famodun the required wisdom to steer the affairs of the party at this critical period. Salam who also hails from Osun west however cautioned supporters of different aspirants not to demarket the party in the name of supporting an aspirant. He added that all insignias of any aspirant must not be seen on any supporter while the governors' visit will last in the senatorial district.

While the norm in earlier visits was to admonish the governor and declare support for his final decision, that of Ede was different as though the people gave their support for the governor, they were however resolute and loud in their quest to produce Aregbesola's successor.

As the train moved to Ikire the clamour for the west to produce the next governor remains the same. The tempo is expected to be maintained in all the Osun West Senatorial District as they would see Governor Aregbesola’s visit to express their minds and resolve to get the ticket of the party for the governorship.

Governorship hopefuls from Osun west in APC include Dr. Ezekiel Oyemomi, Adelere Oriolowo, Benedict Alabi, Moshood Adeoti (SSG) among many others.
