Former Nigeria Vice President Atiku Abubakar has appealed to the electorate in Osun State to vote wisely on Saturday by returning the incumbent governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for another four-year term.
In a statement from his Media Office, Atiku, who is chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) and whose first wife, Hajiya Titi Atiku Abubakar hails from Ilesa in Osun State,  called on his in-laws to trounce the PDP at the governorship election slated for this Saturday.
The former Vice President spoke when a section of Osun leaders paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
Atiku told the visitors that he was one of them by marriage, adding: “in fact, I am a son of the soil who share your revered ideals and tradition of honesty, modesty, dedication to duty, steadfastness, integrity and communal responsibility. We do have a common bond of a lifetime. So I am urging you to team up with the progressives in your state and Nigeria to put in place good governments that would benefit all and sundry. Please, don’t let me down. Vote Aregbesola and APC.”
The APC cheiftain said that besides the matrimonial bond, he has political tentacles that stretch the length and breadth of Nigeria and beyond.
According to him, his relationship with Governor Aregbesola dates back to many years even as he said:
“Ogbeni is a people’s politician, a great policy maker and implementer. He is humane, simple and humble. He has the fear of God and respect for men and women. He is a steward of high repute and his numerous works and high performance ratings would see him win a second term massively.”
Atiku’s solidarity flight to Ibadan enroute Osogbo yesterday was said to have been cancelled due to bad weather condition.
It is on record that Hajiya Titi Atiku Abubakar, the wife of Atiku, holds some of the highest traditional titles ever bestowed on any woman in Yorubaland and Osun State respectively. Amongst them are the Yeye Adimula of the Source (Mother and Pillar of Support for Yorubaland, Ile Ife); the Yeye Odo of Osun State (Mother of Osun Youths) and the Yeye Atayase of Ijesaland (Mother of Improvement).
