Tinubu and Buhari made me who I am today — Aregbesola

The immediate past minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola, says he owes his success story to President Bola Tinubu and ex-president Muhammadu Buhari.

Aregbesola spoke on Saturday in Oyo during a civic reception organised in his honour by concerned Muslim scholars and clerics in south-western Nigeria (CMSCSWN).

He added that Tinubu mentored him in Lagos and facilitated his election as governor of Osun.

He also said the establishment of the passport office, fire fighting office and agro-ranger office in Oyo town, which people praise him for, were done by Buhari and executed through him as minister of interior.

“If any appreciation and gratitude could be given to me, I want to believe greater appreciation should be given to the two people I mentioned,” Aregbesola said.
“Without their support, it would be pretty difficult for me to single-handedly achieve the height I am now and be able to render the service to the good people of Oyo.”
Daud Tijani, host of the programme, described Aregbesola as a man who never “compromised his integrity and faith in what he believes to be right”.

Tijani thanked the erstwhile minister for his commitment to the cause of humanity and infrastructural development in the interest of the people.
