The National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is currently in a closed-door meeting with the Osun State governor, Adegboyega Oyetola; Minister for Interior, Rauf Aregbesola and former National Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande.
It was gathered that the meeting holding at the residence of Chief Akande in Ila Orangun, Osun State was to broker peace between Oyetola and his predecessor, Aregbesola.
Aregbesola had earlier announced his arrival in the state via a post on his Twitter handle.The minister said he was in the state to begin Stakeholders’ Engagement Meeting as directed by the President Muhammadu Buhari.
He also attached the pictures of his visitation to Akande, alongside Oyetola.
“Earlier today, I arrived at the @StateofOsun with my entourage from the @MinofInteriorNG to begin my Stakeholders’ Engagement Meeting with different stakeholders in the state as directed by President @MBuhari.
“Our entourage paid a courtesy visit to our leader and father, Baba Bisi Akande, alongside Governor of the @StateofOsun, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola in Ila Orangun. Baba advised us on #EndSARS and insecurity amongst other issues!”the minister tweeted.
Before the visit, there was tension over Aregbesola’s plan to attend a political programme holding the same day with Oyetola’s second anniversary celebrations on Friday, November 27.
However, the organisers, Osun State caucus of the National Assembly, cancelled the public lecture over the accusation that the event was meant to insult the state governor, Oyetola.
Both Aregbesola and Oyetola have refrained from public comments on their seeming strained relationship.
Aregbesola, however, explained that the Stakeholders’ Engagement on Internal Security and Conflict Resolution is aimed at strengthening peace and security in the aftermath of the destruction across the country.
He said the Ministry of Interior engaged in consultations with the state government, traditional rulers, civil society groups, religious institutions and youth groups on the need to adopt dialogue as a key approach in channeling grievances and resolving conflicts.
