    I think he should be greeted well_done

    Aregbesola is a political opportunist. We continue to worship human beings, yet most politicians lay claim to being Christian or in Aregbgesola’s case, moslem. Much as the vision of Chief Obafemi Awolowo was so far reaching since 1950′s, such that his policies and principles remain valud, 50 years after, and his memory deserves our respect; it is nothing short of worshipping of a human being to pay homage ti his widow and accord political recognition to his descendants who may not necessarily share their progenitor’s priniples or political beliefs.

    ACN is the least democratic party in Nigeria. As terrible as PDP is, the name of Obasanjo could not get his daughter a return ticket on PDP platform automatically, they had to engage in tedious rigging, whereas in ACN, there would not have even been a primary in the first place. The culture of political royalty and brazen nepotism established by their Asiwaju in ACN is what Aregbesola is perfecting. It is only for a time. Only for a time. In all the demicracies and developed countries, these guys visit and study, they do not administer on the narrow premise of the past, they consider the present and peep into the future.

    Stop deceiving the people, by rolling out family members who have no self-respect and are ready to feed from any one in the name of their father, grand father or great grandfather. Aregbesola should be hosting the hardwirking women who fry ‘akara’ by the roadside, making State of Oshun a compulsory stop on interstate journey. The hunters who pull in the free range animals from the forest, and ti help form them into co-operatives.

      So a man can be so bitter like this Henry adegbenle? I feel sorry for you.

      Awo left a good legacy- that is what his children are enjoying now!

      What will you leave?

      You better repent…..before it is too late

    • You are so succinct and TRUELY remarkable……………..we abhor and don’t need this unnecessary and unsolicited. Grandstanding……..YOU HAVE SPOKEN SO WELL, I MIGHT MURDER GRAMMAR , OUT OF ANGER, IF I CHOOSE TO ADD ANYTHING TO WHAT YOU WROTE EARLIER……..WELL DONE BRO.

    Henry, open your eyes well and read the story again. Those people visited the governor not that the governor visited them. On Obasanjo and Awolowo, what did Obasanjo did when he was the president for 8 years to deserve being ‘worshipped’ , according to you, like Awolowo? Everybody knows what Awolowo did during his life time, even generations unborn will still know what he did without being president. Even, in Ogun State where Obasanjo comes from, what did he do there. Stop comparing them, they are two different people. For what Awolowo did and stood for, if any of his children participates actively in politics, there is no way he or she will not be recognised especially under the only Progressive Party in the Yoruba Nation, A C N.

    • Humnnnn…….a lot of sentiments fraying and flying here……….NOW WE HAVE TO BE SPECIFIC, SCIENTIFIC AND CATEGORICAL , ALL THE WAY……..1..OBASANJO AND AWOLOWO , IS AND WAS, RESPECTIVELY, PRODUCTS OF THE BEGINING ………..2. OBASANJO IS TOTALLY PATRIOTIC, AND AWOLOWO WAS TOTALLY PATRIOTIC……….3. THE OPPORTUNITIES PRESENTED TO OBASANJO, WAS DEALT WITH TO THE BEST OF HIS KNOWLEDGE AND EXPOSSURES, AS A MILITARY MAN , WITH A CALCULATIVE AND MILITARY MIND. WHEREAS THE OPPORTUNITIES PRESENTED TO AWOLOWO WAS DEALT WITH AS A POLITICIAN, WITH PURE RESPECT FOR THE RULE OF LAW…………..4.IF AWOLOWO DID NOT PUSH AND FIGHT FOR INDEPENDENCE, OBASANJO, WON’T HAVE ANY REASON TO FIGHT TO KEEP NIGERIA AS ONE………………..5. WITH THE SAME VENORM, IF OBASANJOS HEAD WAS NOT IN PLACE, BEYOND THOSE OF THE REST OF NIGERIANS, NIGERIANS WOULD HAVE BEING REDUCED TO SLAVES IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY, ESPECIALLY, IF OBASANJO, DID NOT QUICKLY, WITH MILITARY PRECISION, CIRCUMVENT THE RECKLESS AMBITION AND ADVANCEMENT OF THE SLAVE MASTER, TO REDUCE NIGERIANS TO MERE POOL OF LABOUR, IN THE 1970S( precicely 1975/76) WITH THE PROMULGATION OF THE 1975/76 INDEGENIZATION ACT………..6.WHEN AWOLOWO WAS FRUSTRATED BY THE RULER OF THE WORLD, AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL, HE PROVED TO THE WORLD THAT DEVELOPMENT CAN BE ACHIEVED IN BLACK NATIONS OF THE WORLD, IF WE ARE GIVEN A LEVEL PLAYING FEILD LIKE OUR COUNTERPARTS IN ADVANCED NATIONS OF THE WORLD. HENCE, HE DEVELOPED HIS PEOPLE AND REGION, TO THE ENVY OF THE WORLD…………AWOLOWO APPLIED WISDOM…………….7.WHEN OBASANJOS HANDS WERE TWISTED TO THE POINT OF SUMBMISSION AND DEATH, IN 2000., HE DECIDED TO WORK WITH THE INTERNATIONAL STAKE HOLDERS, AND SIMULTANOUSLY DID HIS BEST TO DEVELOP NIGERIA AS WELL AS EMPOWER THE PEOPLE……..HE AT THIS POINT IN TIME , TOO , APPLIED WISDOM……..THE LIST OF COMPARRISON IS ENDLESS, HENCE, INEXHAUSTIBLE……………WE DO NOT NEED TO MAKE THESE GREAT PEOPLE OUR OBJECTS OF ARGUMENT OR NEGATIVE DISCUSSION……………THEY ARE GREAT ENTITIES, WHOSE INPUTS CAN NEVER BE OVERLOOKED, IN THE HISTORY OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY…….IF ONE PERSON GOES FOR AWOLOWO,IT’S ALLOWED AS AWOLOWOS ACHIEVEMENTS STAND TALL FOR ALL TO SEE WORLDWIDE………AND IF ANOTHER PERSON SAYS OBASANJO, IT’S EQUALLY ALLOWED, BECAUSE HIS INPUT TOO, IS NOT EASILY DISPENSABLE, IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY……….. AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME , WE REMINSCENCE, THE ENORMOUS CONTRIBUTION OF LATE GENERAL BABATUNDE IDIAGBON TOO………….THESE ARE THE THREE GREATEST MEN THAT EVER WALKED AND STILL WALKING(in the case of obasanjo, MAY BABAS SOUL CONTINUE TO LEAD US FOR. MANY DECADES TO COME, WE NEED HIS INTERNATIONAL EXPOSSURE AND NATIONAL EXPERIENCE) THE FACE OF THIS GREAT NATION…………WHILE YOU PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING AND ARGUEING ABOUT WHO IS BETTER OF THESE GREAT MEN……….HUMNNNN………….I AM ASKING, WHY ARE THESE THREE GREATESTS OF WESTERN REGION EXTRACTION ONLY……..humnnnnnnnnnnnn………….ALLAU AK BAR………….GOD IS GREAT……..AND WHAT IS THIS THING ABOUT THE WESTERNERS……..I AM JUST TOO CURIOUS……………….since 1960, our rank as a FIELD MARSHALL, has been reduced to a MAJOR……….. A MYSTERIOUS DEMOTION THAT HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE BY THE RETROGRESSIVE AGENTS OF THE INTERNATIONAL STAKEHOLDER , IN OUR MIST…………..NOW THAT WE ARE ABOUT TO BE COMPLETELY OBLITERATED, BY BEING DEMOTED TO A MERE SERGEANT MAJOR, WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF 5000 NAIRA NOTE, BY THIS STUPID IDIOT AND MORON, CALLED LAMIDO……… IS THIS HOW WE ARE ALL GOING TO FOLD OUR HANDS AND ALLOW MORONIC- LAMIDO, AND HIS COHORTS, TO DEVASTATE ALL OF US, WITH HIS STUPID ECONOMIC POLICY INITIATIVE , THAT IS DESIGNED TO PUT NIGERIAN ECONOMY IN PERMANENT COMA, WITH NO HOPE OF RECOVERY………..ABEGGIIIIIII, THERE ARE MORE PRESSSING THINGS THAN TALKING ABOUT PAST ACHIEVEMENTS THAT. ARE SUPPOSE TO TELE-GUIDE US , IN DISCERNING THAT LAMIDOS ECONOMIC POLICY IS MEANT TO PROMOTE THE AGENDA OF THE ALIENS FROM FAR DISTANT LANDS, OUR COLLECTIVE ADVERSARY, THE INTERNATIONAL STAKE HOLDER, THE COLONIZER OR FINALLY, THE SLAVE MASTER……………..WE SAW SAME HAPPENED IN GHANA, WE ARE QUICK TO TAG IT AS DEVELOPMENT………….HUMNNNNN……..DEVELOPMENT THAT REDUCED 25 million Ghanaians to insignificant suppliers of labour, hence , slave in their own motherland…….if we allow the same in Nigeria, we , 160million people,will be reduced to slave, in our own fatherland……….LETS EMBARK ON PHYSICAL AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT, AND NAME THEM AFTER OUR GREATS TO CELEBRATE THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS OR INPUTS FOR IMPROVED SOCIAL WELFARE PROGRAMS, AS WELL AS, HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT.

    @ Henry Adegbenle … what exactly is your problem? Is it illiteracy (to read and understand) or idleness? Get off it man, hence you die of another man’s headache … gosh!

  5. Ola

    Let us stop all these political jamboree and face the real business of governance! By the way,what is the meaning of such visit to the people of
    0sun state and what economic value is it to them when there is already a capital flight from 0sun to Lagos! 0sun state is highly besiged by Lagos politicians and contractors.0sun state is the only state in the s/west where we have nearly all the political, celebrated names that are represented in its cabinet.l wonder what is left for the people of the state except for propaganda and political colouration from these imported politicians!

  6. Ayour Pee

    @ Ola … Just like Henry … what exactly is your problem? i hate when people start speaking in parables. Were you denied of a political appointment or contract? Mark my word: the sooner you, as an individual, also face your own business and stop whining on the internet all the time, the better for you to make progress.

    We cant all be a ruler at the same time. It was someone’s time yesterday; it’s Aregbe’s time today. He cant be there for ever. If he likes, let him do it well or otherwise. Posterity will judge all of us but oga Ola, you can achieve absolutely nothing simply by running people down … let Aregbe be!

  7. paul

    HE IS A COWARD GOVERNOR.

    OCOLTIC MAN LOOK AT HIS FACE DEMON

    • Ola Mayowa

      Paul, kindly submit your prove of occultism or forever keep quiet. You must be diabolical yourself. Otherwise what is offensive in the photograph here. Or are you enraged by the beard of the man? Is it a crime to wear on? I hope your outrage is no religious? If it is kindly remember that Nigeria is a multireligious nation.
      Kindly eschew bitterness and be matured and tolerant.

  8. joe

    Haba!! stop criticizing and let dis people concentrate o jare.

  9. Thosein support of the visit nd other such unpopular actions are just political mediocals sentimental who wants leaders without mission or vision but are interested in waste of public funds like Mr president

  10. Alejolowo

    Aregbesola has always been a desperate ‘ojelu’ (political jobber) right from his days in Alimosho, Lagos. Leave ethnicity out of this, I like his personality but not his kind of politicking. To govern, you do not need to run down who has been there before you. But this has been Aegbesola’s way. The oracle called OONIRISA, has been desecrated systematically by Aregbesola (forget the face-saving romance he is having with HRM in the public face). Wallahi, I love Alhaji AbdulRouf Aregbesola but I want to see him having a change of attitude towards those that matter, at all levels.

    • He systematically desecrated Oonirisa? No, he demystified him? Ooni is d Oba of Ile-Ife d cradle of Yoruba; that does not make him a god. And don’t forget he, d Ooni is an active member of PDP. Ooni deserves all regards from Aregbesola as a royal father, but as a politician, he should be treated as opposition tho in a democratic ways and manners.

  11. Niyi

    Whatever you like,you can do it or say it,but only God can crown someone’s effort. My advice for you people is to make ur critics the reasonable one.

  12. Timi Tewo

    Awolowo grand children visit Aregbesola !!!!!!! whats that means ???????.

  13. Pls let us stop insultive words against this man.Lets be objective
    I like Aregbesola not for Anything but His simplicity which has been lacking in our leaders.
    Yorubas l understand criticised There own more than others.

  14. Adeduntan Wale

    I am sure most of those who run Rauf down do not know him too well. Again, most of the commentators here don’t even visit Osun regularly. I submit that the kind of public work and infrastructural development going on simultaneously in all parts of the state are unprecedented in Osun history. If the last administration had done the same, the story about Osun would have been totally different. I can say that as a resident in the state, Aregbe’s work has finesse. He is down to earth and blunt to a fault.

  15. Anon

    Gov Aregbesola is very humble. If most Nigerians has state governors like him, they would thank god. He is ready to listen to his people. Can you talk to President Jonathan or get near to him?

  16. ola

    @ alejolowo. Ooni is an oba of ife, Rauf is governor of state of osun. So rauf learned a lot from mistake of oyinlola who put himself under ooni and dis destroy oyinlola. Ooni is traditional ruler not nigeria president or God.

  17. @ alejolowo is pdp member, rauf is good.
