Ahead of the 2022 gubernatorial election in Osun State, state lawmakers elected under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have visited the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A. Adeboye on how to ake peace between Governor Adegboyega Oyetola and his predecessor, Rauf Aregbesola.
Associates of Aregbesola, the current Minister of Interior, operating under the aegis of The Osun Progressives (TOP) are currently locked in a supremacy battle with Oyetola for the soul of the party in the state.
According to a source who was privy to the arrangement, the visitation to Pastor Adeboye was led by the Speaker, Timothy Owoeye, and eight other members who met the clergyman sometime last week at the Redemption Camp.
The source said, “The visit was led by the Speaker and they sought Baba’s help in brokering peace between the duo. Peace is the only ingredient that can guarantee and sustain the development and prosperity of the state.”
He said, “Baba made it clear that he has no preference for any of the political party but that it is biblical to play the role of a peacemaker and on that premise, promised to do something about it.”
