Aregbesola: Poverty, the religion of PDP

Aregbesola: Poverty, the religion of PDP

Rauf Aregbesola, governor of Osun state, says the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not have the interest of Nigeria at heart, calling on the people to vote out the party in 2015.

Speaking on Thursday during his second term inauguration, Aregbesola alleged that there was widespread underdevelopment in the country.

Aregebsola was declared as the winner of the August 9 election, which held in the state.

“PDP stands for poverty, misery and insecurity. The religion of PDP is poverty. They are prepared to sacrifice the entire country as long as their hold on power is intact and our assignment in 2015 is to vote them out,” he said.


“Come February next year, Nigerians are going to say enough is enough. We are going to beat them because they are beatable. Osun defeated PDP and if Osun can defeat PDP, Nigerians everywhere must defeat PDP.

“We must terminate the regime of self-seeking manipulators who currently parade corridors of power, accruing political profit by turning us against each other and further dividing us along ethnic and religious lines. The result of their politics of division is that Nigerians are poorer in the last 16 years whereas Nigeria as a country has never been richer save for recent months when oil price has declined.”

Recalling the build-up to the election, Aregbesola expressed appreciation to the people of the state for identifying with him.


He promised to carry everyone along during his second term and pledged to initiate a development of 20 years within the next four years.

“Our performance in the first term endeared us to you and convinced you to give us the mandate for another term and we shall continue on this path and accelerate the speed of development in Osun,” he said.

“The mandate you have given us covers all the peoples of Osun in their social, political, religious and ethnic heterogeneity. There shall be no discrimination or disfavour against any individual or group on account of identity or difference.

“Our vision is to deliver 20 years development in the next four years in economic, social and political fields. We shall complete all ongoing projects and start new ones.


“We shall touch every community in roads, education and infrastructure. We shall touch every household in wealth creation, security of lives and property, social amenities, political empowerment, political representation and much more. We shall consolidate on the foundation we are building and proceed to the superstructure of prosperity and greatness for our land and people.

“Though the financial challenges are daunting, we shall do everything within our power and the unbounded resources of our land and people to achieve our goals without faltering.”
