Insiders Confirmed Rift Between Tinubu, Aregbesola

Published

What could have caused  a fight between the Interior Minister, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and his godfather, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu? Is it Asiwaju’s ambition? Is Aregbesola against the plans by his mentor to become the President? Those were questions raised by people within and outside the circle of the APC regarding the reported fight between these two politicians.

Papermacheonline can exclusively gathered that the matter did not just happen, they had both not been on talking terms, but its well managed that if you don’t belong to the inner caucus of the Lagos APC you wouldn’t have noticed.

‘Aregbe’ who is regarded as the spiritual guardian of the APC and Tinubu, the strongman of the party were said to have fallen apart over an issue concerning the running of the government of Osun State.

According to those in the know, the Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola is alleged to have heavily cut down the influence of his predecessor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in the politics of the State.

The Governor not only cancelled most of the projects embarked upon by Aregbe when he was the Governor, he also collapsed his structures and he didn’t feature any of his aides in his government. This in no little means has affected Aregbesola’s base who complained to Asiwaju Tinubu to call his cousin-Governor to order.

It is revealed that Tinubu’s body language indicated he had already taken a side and Aregbesola took offence and stayed away from the presidential aspirant.

Their fight became public knowledge when Asiwaju Tinubu traveled to the United Kingdom for a knee treatment and he was visited by the who-is-who in Nigerian politics. Aregbesola unexpectedly was not part of the pilgrimage to London.

Also when Asiwaju returned and he was welcomed by his trusted aides and loyalists, the former Governor of Osun State was nowhere to be found.

Insiders among the party confirmed there is an issue, but hinted it was minor, laying claims to similar matters in the past.

It is said that the close bond the two politicians shared makes it difficult for people to wade into their matter. Pundits believe when the time comes, the two men would come back together as they both need each other for strategic reasons concerning Tinubu’s ambition.

‘it’s wicked and stupid! I don’t know how to respond to such’

 

That was a response from one of the aides to the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde when asked to confirm if truly the Governor recently acquired a private jet.

 

A report monitored online by papermache.com alleged that the Governor has joined the league of jet owners in Nigeria.

 

Governor Makinde was said to have been spotted at the Felix Houphouet Airport, Abidjan alighting from the aircraft alongside, Alhaji Azeem Gbolarumi and Alhaji Bisi Olopoeniyan at the just concluded AFCON finals.

 

This stemmed the report that the Governor has just acquired the private jet for his private use.

 

Another aide of the Governor who refused to add his name, citing reasons that he wasn’t allowed to make official comments responded to the allegation as ‘funny! How can you say somebody bought a jet because he alighted from it?’.
