Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has attacked presidential aspirant and leader of All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu over governorship tussle in Osun State.
Addressing APC faithful and stakeholders ahead of the party’s governorship primary in Ijebu Ilesa, Osun State, he said Tinubu has positioned himself as god over them because he has been accorded respect as a political mentor.
Although Aregbesola did not directly mention Tinubu’s name, he launched some verbal attacks at the APC National Leader in relation to the political situation in Osun.
“We followed and served this leader with all our might. In fact, our loyalty to him had caused some people to start wondering if we were no longer Muslims.
“But we were with him and served him according to the admonition of our forefathers, who said when serving anyone, we should do so with sincerity and loyalty; that if you regard anyone as your principal, you must serve him wholeheartedly.
“Sadly, we didn’t know that while we wished him well, he didn’t think good of us.
“However, because we placed him higher than where he ordinarily should be, he started to think he is our god.
“Unfortunately, for him, we had sworn to God that whoever compares himself to him, we’d beg Him to bring down such a fellow,” he was quoted.
