Today, The Minister of Interior and Immediate Past Governor of State of OSUN, Mr Rauf Aregbesola is sixty five years old.
Eaach year the quintessential Politician celebrates his birthday there are usually outpouring of encomiums and goodwill messages from Friends, Political followers and beneficiaries of his uncommon kindness and shrewdness
Instances abound on why some people regard Rauf Aregbesola as not only a sage but as a man who is exceptionally futuristic who can peep into the far far Future and take a critical or radical position that can shape today, tomorrow and Future
In Lagos when he was the COMMISSIONER FOR works, he laid a solid and enduring infrastructural platform upon which a modern Lagos could be built. Today Lagos State is not only a model in infrastructural development it’s a big economic and commercial hub in Africa.
Rauf Aregbesola came to OSUN when the State could be better described as a jungle, he sat down for about a year fashioning out designs on how the State could be rejigged, restructured and polished up. By the time the man who is today regarded as Father or Architect of modern OSUN started reeling out his designs, even his Political foes and detractors agreed that a sage.
Then, Aregbesola used to educate his critics that if we failed to take these bold steps now, Future unpredictable economic dictates may debar our progress. And now and here is the future AREGBE was taking about
Let all sentiments be buried, if AREGBE had failed to construct the Oba Adesoji Aderemi popularly known as Ona Baba ona, if Aregbesola had failed to build the mega schools, if Aregbesola had failed to construct the ten kilometer roads Across each Local Government Area in OSUN STATE, if Aregbesola had failed to construct the Nelson Mandela freedom park, if Aregbesola had not rescued Osogbo The OSUN STATE CAPITAL from its disgusting, rustic, raw and crude look if Aregbesola had failed to advance the Ilesa water project who and again who would have taken the bold and courageous step now that The economy of the nation has been badly injured by a number of factors. It is on record that Aregbesola had brought OSUN STATE out from the depth of despair and move it to the height of ecstasy
AREGBESOLA, like such leaders such as obafemi Awolowo, Kwame Nkrumah, Neslon Mandela, Chief Bola Ige among others has a radical and fervent belief in greatest happiness for the greatest number of people. His BELIEF was strong IN Awolowo’s assertion that Government should be run as a public company with the masses as stakeholders and dividends distributed among them as and when due
This explained why such masses oriented Programmes as O meal, O yes, Free train from Lagos, Free uniform for students, O resp among others were introduced be
AREGBESOLA’s giant stride at the federal level has indeed singled him out for love and admiration.
Born on 25th of May 1957, Aregbesola spent his early years in ONDO State. He later attended the popular polytechnic Ibadan where he displayed a rare and spectacular leadership qualities as speaker of the students REPRESENTATIVES council SRC of the Poly Ibadan
