Activists called to contribute to political development so as not to be governed by their inferiors.
Politicians have been admonished to ensure quality service to their people because the works of men live after them.
A Development Finance Expert and President and Convenor, Nigeria Voters Assembly (VOTAS), Comrade Moshood Erubami gave the admonition as the Chairman of the 64th Birthday ceremony of the Minister of Internal Affairs, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in Oshogbo, Osun State at the weekend.
The Activist called on his fellow Activists not to jettison politics so as not to be governed by their inferiors, a believe that made the late iconic Activist, Gani Fawehinmi to launch a political party in his days.
He lauded the contributions of the Minister to the development of his state and the nation.
Comrade Erubami said Aregbesola started to show greater capacity to deliver from State and National assignments when he started as Honorable Commissioner for works in Lagos from 1999-2007 under the Jagaban Borgu, Senator Bola Hammed Tinubu.
“Particularly, as Governor in the State of Osun, he sincerely and comradely put his workers, civil and political, the people of the state of Osun at the heart of government and worked hard to make democracy productively yielding and impactful.
“He worked to ensure that every government policy and his personal decision were made to further the peoples’ interest and lift them from the morass of hopelessness, helplessness, dejection, poverty and ignorance into the cape of peace, security, prosperity and abundant life.
“He revived education with new schools, free meals, free school uniforms, improved infrastructure and unquantifiable motivation for teachers.
Describing Aregbesola as an Oramiyan symbol, he lauded him and the disciples of Bola Tinubu who are in various arms of government for their meritorious service to the nation.
Speaking Aregbesola pleaded with the Yoruba nation to avoid war at all cost as it will be of no benefit but of collateral damage to the very advanced region of the nation.
