I’d Rather Quit Politics Than Betray Aregbesola – Ex-Osun SSG

The former Secretary to the Osun State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, has said that he would rather quit politics than betray the former governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

Adeoti who spoke on Saturday at the 67th birthday ceremony in Osogbo declared that Aregbesola financed and restructured the Progressive Party and brought it back to the government after the 2003 debacle.

He added the immediate past Minister of Interior earned his loyalty and support with his good character and love for the masses.

Adeoti said: “Aregbesola restored the progressive party to government. After the 2003 governorship election defeat, the progressive was in disarray; Aregbesola came in 2004 and breathed life into the party.

“He restructured the party and picked up the finances of the party. He restored the progressive to government and performed well.

“Aregbesola always wish everybody well and sees to the upliftment and progress of everybody who works with him.

“Aregbesola is a core progressive and he’s doing well. Those who were in government yesterday are betrayers.

“I would rather resign from politics instead of betraying or dissociating myself from Aregbesola. I can do anything in support of Aregbesola. He’s truthful and straightforward.”
