The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has pulled down posts he made on his social media handles mocking the All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Following the declaration of Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP as the winner of the just concluded governorship election in Osun State, Aregbesola had in a post, said the outcome of the election was God showing his supremacy over the power of men.
Recall that Tinubu had during the APC mega rally in Osun, boasted that the APC candidate and the incumbent Governor, Gboyega Oyetola would emerge the winner of the election no matter what.
Tinubu had named the opposition parties including PDP and the Labour Party as mushroom parties, stressing that they will continue to labour till death.
Recall also that there has been a face-off between Aregbesola and Tinubu, as the Minister who was the Governor of Osun State from 2010 to 2018, accused Asiwaju and ex-governor of Osun State, Bisi Akande, of forcing the current governor of the state, Gboyega Oyetola, on the people against popular will.
Instead, the minister then asked the party members in Osun to support a former Secretary to the State Government, Moshood Adeoti, who was later defeated in the primary election.
Reacting to the outcome of the election, the former Osun governor posted on his handles, saying ”This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the highest ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.’ – (Daniel 4:17),”
However, in less than an hour after the post went viral on social media, It was observed that the content has been deleted.
In a fresh post on his Facebook page, Aregbesola explained that the earlier content was posted without his consent.
He said, “It has come to the attention of the media office of the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, that an unauthorized message was posted on his verified Twitter and Facebook Pages at about 8:00am on Sunday 17th July 2022.
