Seun Abosede, the State Youth Leader of the Rasaq Salinsile-led faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, has described as untrue the report that the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and his successor, Governor Gboyega Oyetola, have settled their differences.
Abosede, in a statement on Sunday, stated that the picture being circulated on social media where Aregbesola and Oyetola were hugging each other is an old picture, saying the minister never met with Oyetola in recent times as regards settlement of the crisis in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
According to him, the people circulating the picture are the same set of people who had crucified, badmouthed and lied against Aregbesola to achieve their selfish goal, saying they should bury their heads in shame for smearing the former governor's image.
"While we are not opposed to genuine reconciliation of both Governor Oyetola and Aregbesola's camps, the picture being circulated by the data boys is not only misleading but mischievous.
"The people behind the circulation of the picture should be humble and sincere enough to initiate a reconciliation move if they so desire. We considered the widespread circulation of the picture as tricky and an attempt to blackmail the minister.
"The general public should please disregard the fake news," said Abosede.
