The outgoing Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola has disclosed that he would prefer to proceed on rest after the expiration of the eight years of two terms tenure of his administration.
Aregbesola who stated this at weekend in Osogbo during his last personality interactive programme tagged: Ogbeni Till Day Break”, said that his resolve to proceed on rest was responsible for his inability to obtain a form for his senatorial ambition.
It would be recalled that most of his colleagues who are leaving office now and by 2019 have signified their intention to proceed to Senate while most of them have already secured the ticket of their party.
It has been rumoured that Aregbesola will be seeking the senatorial ticket in Osun East Senatorial of Osun State and in Lagos State.
The two terms of Aregbesola will expire on November 26th 2018. He assumed the mantle of the state in November 27th 2010.
Aregbesola noted that while on leave, it will afford him the opportunity to have more time for his family, stressing that he need to rest for a while because he had been in active politics since his secondary school days.
According to him, “the reason why I didn’t pick up the senatorial ticket is very simple. I have been active politically since my secondary school days. I simply want to rest.”
The Governor also explained that he would still remain in Osogbo, the Osun State capital even after leaving office.
“People want to know my next movement after November 27, it may surprise you to know that I will leave the government house on Monday, November 19, which is exactly a week to the expiration of my tenure.
“Even after leaving the government house, I will still remain in Osogbo, but I will not tell you my specific location.”
