As reactions still trail the recent cold war between Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola and his Ondo State counterpart, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, over the attack on the State Commissioner for Regional Integration, Mr. Bola Ilori, in Akure, the Ondo State capital, a human rights activist, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, has warned Mr. Aregbesola against sending non-indigenes to represent the  state in any forum where decision that would affect the overall interest of the people of the state would be taken.

It will be recalled that Ilori, who is an indigene of Ondo Township in Ondo State but serving in Osun as Commissioner, was attacked by some hoodlums in Akure penultimate Thursday during the All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders’ meeting on restructuring of the country, being clamoured for by every section of the country.

While reacting on the issue through a statement on Tuesday, Sulaiman, who is Executive Chairman, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ), strongly condemned Aregbesola’s action by describing it as anti-Osun people, unpatriotic, irresponsible, irresponsive and slap on the face of Osun people, urging the good people of the state, particularly, the elders to come out openly and condemned this action of Aregbesola “for poking finger into the eyes of Osun people.”

According to him, “It is a slap on the good people of Osun State for Mr. Rauf Aregbesola to send Bola Ilori to represent the State in Ilori’s State of origin (Ondo) for an important meeting of that nature as if there is no competent indigene of the state that could represent her in such a sensitive gathering. They should be totally condemned by the well meaning people of Osun State so as not to make such action to repeat itself again from Aregbesola and anyone who may lead the State in the future.”
