Rauf Aregbesola, the minister of the interior and a former governor of Osun, responded to Ademola Adeleke’s victory over Gboyega Oyetola, the incumbent governor of the state and a candidate for the All Progressives Congress.
Aregbesola responded to Adeleke’s victory by quoting Daniel chapter four verse 17, despite missing the APC big rally in Osun on Tuesday, July 12, and the governorship election on Saturday, July 16.
The statement read;
“The most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
“Osun Le Tente.
“‘This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.’- (Daniel 4:17).”
