Aregbesola, Yuguda Urge Nigerians to Learn from Post-election Mayhem

Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State

Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has called on Nigerians and political leaders to “learn from the unfortunate episode of the last presidential election which was characterized by high level violence in some northern part of the country.”


The governor stated that subsequent elections should be conducted in such a way that everybody would be satisfied regardless of the outcome.


Aregbesola made this call while playing host to the Governor of Bauchi State, Mallam Isa Yuguda, who paid a condolence visit to the state over the death of some corps members in Bauchi during the 2011 presidential election.


He thereafter led Yuguda to the families of the corps members to commiserate with them. Two of the slain corps members were indigenes of Gbongan.


The families of the murdered corps members told the two visiting governors to help them appeal to the federal government to fulfil the promises it made to the families since last year.


The families disclosed that both Bauchi and the Osun State government had fulfilled their own side of the promises made to the victims’ families, leaving only that of the federal government.


Aregbesola commended Yuguda’s gesture for the visit, saying the Bauchi chief executive has exhibited a deep sense of responsibility as a leader.


The governor said Yuguda’s visit brought in his trail a sense of relief after the brutal experience of 2011.


He averred that the death of the young graduates were not the real issue but the utter display of sense of inhuman feelings towards fellow human beings.
