Emerging details from Osun state corridors of power revealed that the immediate past governor of Osun state Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has begun a discreet move to make his son a major beneficiary in the composition of the cabinet of the newly sworn-in governor of Osun state, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola.
According to societynow.ng, the former governor is pushing to make his son Kabiru Aregbesola a cabinet member in the administration of his successor.
The two-term governor has actually penciled down his son’s name for the position of chief of staff to the new state helmsman, the source maintained.
And he’s seriously working towards making it a reality an insider further insists.
Governor Oyetola who is the half-brother of APC national figure, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu served in the government of Aregbesola as Chief of Staff for eight years.
Interestingly Kabiru was said to be a player in the same government throughout the reign of his father in the state.
Kabiru is reportedly the brain behind the infamous Tablet Of Learning (Opon Imo) distributed to secondary school students in the state.
The project was said to have been widely criticised across the state.
“It’s not a thing they just thought of overnight… The plan to ensure Kabiru serve in the cabinet of the new governor has always been his father’s plan. And a few numbers of Aregbesola associates are aware”, a source who is familiar with the development said.
To ensure party faithfuls didn’t raise voices against his choice, findings revealed Kabiru was incorporated into the campaign team in the build-up to the gubernatorial election in the state, another source volunteered.
Having served in the security and mobilisation committee during the last gubernatorial campaign, insiders confirm the plot to make Kabiru the Chief of Staff to the new governor of Osun state is now being packaged as a payback for his works during the campaign and electioneering periods.
