Rauf Aregbesola, the outgoing governor of Osun State claims he’s been an “absentee husband.”
The governor, whose eight years in office elapses today, was light-hearted with reporters about the distance his highly demanding job had on his closeness to his wife.
He said: “I want to go and rest. I have been an absentee husband for long enough. I now want to stay with my wife and enjoy each other.
“We are happy we have someone like GboyegaOyetola succeeding this administration because he knows everything we did and will surely continue where we stop.
“So, there is hope for this state. All praises go to God for not allowing those who wanted to use tricks to get to power without vision and who will destroy our legacies and reverse the direction and the development of the state. Every file before getting to me must pass through Oyetola. So, he is set for the job.”
Aregbesola came into power on November 27, 2010 after the Court of Appeal sitting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, sacked his predecessor, Prince OlagunsoyeOyinlola, who had spent three and a half years of his second term in office.”
