The Minister of Interior, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, has been described as the worst minister ever to man the interior ministry.
This was contained in a statement issued by former Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Abduljeleel Adesiyan, which was made available to newsmen in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, this morning.
The former police affairs Minister who is a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC), in Osun State, stated that Aregbesola’s ministerial appointment has not been adding value to the APC government both in the state and at the Federal level.
Adesiyan observed that instead of the interior Minister to use his ministerial portfolio to consolidate the APC in the state, he has brazenly been instrumental to causing needless friction, tension and division in the state.
The former police affairs minister stated further that Aregbesola would have been fired in a saner clime for causing distraction to the administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola.
Adesiyan observed that the nation’s correctional centres have been witnessing the highest number of jailbreaks since the inception of the tenure of Aregbesola as the interior minister.
He said that the self-confession of the interior minister as being the patron of a tendency within the state APC, ‘The Osun Progressives(TOP)’, is a monumental disgrace to the Ijesa-born minister.
Adesiyan reminded the Interior minister to refrain henceforth from being a bad ambassador of Osun State through his uncivilized and bellicose approach to politics and politicking.
According to the former Police Affairs minister, “I am surprised at the obvious uncivilized conduct of Aregbesola in and out of office.
“He behaves as if he originated politics and politicking in Osun State by the indecent ways and manners he behaves.
“Aregbesola should be told that Osun State is not his conquered territory where he has the latitude to act and behave irrationally.
I thought with my earlier advice that he should be ministerial in his approach to issues , I was stunned to see him going to Ilesha today proclaiming and endorsing Adeoti as TOP candidate in Osun state ,a dream that can not manifest.
When we had course to disagree with Alliance for Democracy in year 2000 we left to join PDP to prove that we have Osun state in our pockets but today we realise that progressive is our home and we are fully back .
If they (TOP) are so sure of themselves they should stop their confusion and go and join or form another party to prove that they are what they call themselves.
We in Osun state knows that you rode to power through the power and political dexterity of Senator Bola Hammed Tinubu.
Without him you Aregbeshola is no body,if you don’t know; I Alhaji Abdul Jelili Oyewale Adesiyan is telling you the home truth.
Today you are biting the fingers that made you something and God doesn’t enjoy standing with a betrayal.
I advice you go to Senator Bola Hammed Tinubu to ask for forgiveness otherwise political destruction await you.
“Well, one shouldn’t be surprised at the woefully failed performance of Aregbesola as the interior minister as he had confessed not to know anything about the ministry during his screening at the Senate sometime ago.
“Be that as it may, is Aregbesola so dull or insufficiently educated that he can’t effectively master the operation of his ministry in three years?
“President Mohammodu Buhari has no justifiable reason for retaining Aregbesola as the Interior Minister.
“Aregbesola should be sacked immediately and give the ministry to whoever is ready to add value to same.
“Enough of avoidable jail breaks in our correctional centres across the nation. Aregbesola should just go”, the former police affairs minister said.
