The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has said that killers have been admitted to the All Progressives Congress.
Aregbesola said this when he spoke at his Ifofin, Ward 8, Ilesa East Local Government Area, after he revalidated his APC membership on Friday, February 20.
While speaking to newsmen, Aregbesola who is a former governor of the state, said
“Killers have joined our party and the law guiding our party doesn’t say we can’t admit them when a law court has not convicted them. You know the killers or you don’t know them?
You know miscreants or you don’t know miscreants? If we will be in the same party, we will not accept anything that will denigrate Bola Ige. He was our father. In this area, Bola Ige was our father.
Are you happy that Bola Ige was killed? I am a son to the late Bola Ige. Whoever denigrates Bola Ige is our enemy. Whoever wants to use Bola Ige’s tomb to climb to a higher height would not achieve his aim. When we want to aspire for a position here, your name and antecedent will determine how you will be treated.”
His comment comes days after a former deputy governor of the state Iyiola Omisore, defected from SDP to APC.
