Social media users have mocked Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola after his candidate, Moshood Adeoti, lost woefully in the Osun APC governorship primaries.
Results from wards in the direct primaries, showed that Governor Adegboyega Oyetola coasted home to victory to disgrace Aregbesola.
Aregbesola had taken a swipe at the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, saying he is playing God and vowed to ensure that Oyetola did not emerge winner in the primaries, supporting Adeoti instead.
Reacting to Arebesola’s defeat on Saturday, a twitter user, Folashade Okunola said: “He just start, he never see anything.”
Femi Sunday, another twitter user, stated: “A great lesson. You don’t bite the finger that feeds you when you are full. Imagine calling Asiwaju ‘atole’. Quite outrageous and disrespectful.”
Oluwole Dada wrote: “Aregbe should have read the handwriting on the wall and left Oyetola alone. Tinubu saw the handwriting on the wall in 2011 and left BRF alone. Your ability to read situations is also one of the virtues of wisdom.”
Sulaimon Adenuga tweeted: “After the Primary Election, we will now come out in full force against Aregbe but for now let’s still focus on the primary election.”
As for David Abdulrazak Atta, “If Aregbe loses today, his political career is over, both from the front (Oyetola) and the back (Tinubu)… This thing that power does to men, may it never do it to me.”
Ade Ori Okin wrote: “Baba Kabiru just ended his political career not only in Osun State but in Nigeria by himself… Can you imagine Gboyega Oyetola is now bigger than Aregbe in osun?”
Lawal Luqman said “Against all economic indicators, they praised Aregbesola that time. I remember boys did Maguire job during the last conference Baba Kabiru had. They defended half-salary, single uniform, opon imo, failure to pay pensioners among others Aregbe is still ‘cumming.’”
Jamiu Julius Adebayo wrote: “Aregbe started losing this primaries the moment he came out with that video rant. Court of public opinion counted against him.”
As for Valiant Samson Idowu-Alaba, “Aregbe went to court over party structure, he lost twice. He’s losing today heavily. If he contests the outcome in court, he will lose. He will lose also in the July general election. As it stands, he’s a dead man walking in Osun state!”
African Deity wrote: “PDP would be lowered in 2023 just the way Oyetola lowered Adeoti and Aregbe today.”
Prince Giesi wrote: “Aregbe actually thought he can win the Osun APC primary for Adeoti”
As for Chinedu Ekeja, “So ridiculous how Nigerian kingmakers fail to learn that a fish can’t be a fish anymore outside water. Aregbe is learning the hard way.”
According to Laddo, “Aregbe has every right to have issues with Tinubu, yes it happens in politics but the way this Baba Kabiru went about it is not only stupid but also so classless… and to think He is a federal minister is utterly shameful!”
Adenrele Babatunde added: “Hmmmm.. you’re absolutely right on those things. But Aregbe has been going about saying he didn’t follow his legacies and I kept wondering what legacies? Half salaries or high-handedness on Schools in Osun?”
