Tinubu And Aregbesola At War Over Selection of Gov. Oyetola’s Cabinet

FUNSHO AKINWALE

There is a silent but raging feud going on between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and ex-governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

Tinubu according to informed sources has rebuffed all entreaties by Aregbesola to push his son, Kabiru as Chief of Staff to his successor, Oyetola.

Tinubu we gathered prefers his spokesman, Alhaji Tunde Rahman for the plum job.

While Aregbesola is still pushing hard for his son to get the job, Tinubu has already sealed the position for Rahman.

The rush for the position a political pundit said is strategic.

This is because it is the APC’s collage of influence to control the government.

Checks revealed that Tinubu rejected Aregbesola’s offer because of his preference for a more trusted aide in the person of Rahman in such position.

Tinubu has much influence in the state because he is behind the emergence of Oyetola as governor.

He was also instrumental to Aregbesola becoming the two-term governor of Osun State.
