Rauf Aregbesola, the former Minister of Interior, acknowledged the significant contributions of President Bola Tinubu and former President Muhammadu Buhari to his political achievements and success.
Speaking at a civic reception organized in his honor by concerned Muslim scholars and clerics in Oyo town, Oyo State, Aregbesola expressed gratitude for the support he received from both leaders.
He emphasized that their guidance and backing had paved the way for his career in politics in the South-West region of Nigeria.
He said, “I am thankful to those who make the achievements that facilitated this grand reception possible. I start with those who mentored me in Lagos, who facilitated my emergence in Osun, who made it possible for me to do the little things that the Oyo people are celebrating me for – Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and former President Buhari.
“If any appreciation and gratitude could be given to me, I want to believe greater gratitude and appreciation should be given to those two people I have mentioned because without their support, it would be pretty difficult for me single-handedly to achieve the heights I have attained and render the services for which the people are commending and appreciating me.”
