Former Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has re-echoed the need for members of the All Progressives Congress, APC to strengthen the political base of the party in Osun State.
Aregbesola, who is also a former governor of the state made this call at a reception as part of activities marking his homecoming in Osogbo on Saturday.
He also said in no distant time, leaders of the party will traverse the length and breadth of the state to visit party members.
“I am deeply grateful to you, all. You have all shown me uncommon love, backing and the strength, unity of purpose and the reassurance that you are indeed with us.
“We are grateful. We will not let you down. We will soon begin a statewide tour to see all our people and to assure them that we are fully back to see to their welfare. We are fully committed to strengthening the APC.
“In no distant time, leaders of the party will traverse the length and breadth of the state to visit party members and re-echo the need for them to strengthen the political base.”
While acknowledging the support of everybody who made the homecoming event a success, Aregbesola expressed gratitude to the people of Osun, the State Government under the leadership of Governor Ademola Adeleke, traditional rulers, groups and associations, among others for their unrelenting support for him and his ideology.
