The Chief Imam of Offa, Sheik Muideen Muhammad commended Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s administration and said he has done well in the education sector while calling on the future successor of the governor to strive to continue the good work. According to Sheik Muhammad, the development of education in Osun was incontrovertible, saying that Aregbesola has ensured quality and free education for the children of the common people.
The Imam spoke while delivering his lecture at the 3rd Oranmiyan Annual Lecture in Commemoration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s 61st birthday celebration held at the Nelson Mandela Freedom Park, Osogbo.
Sheik Muhammad called on other state governors to emulate Aregbesola’s passion for infrastructure development, maintaining that the best that can happen to Osun is for the state to have another governor that will have the same humanitarian heart of Aregbesola to take over from him. ‘Structures which can guarantee a better future for the masses must be put in place, things like education must be taken seriously the way Aregbesola has done in Osun, this is one of the ways the masses can benefit from democracy.
My prayer for Osun is to have a worthy successor to Aregbesola, someone who will have the same humanitarian spirit and that will be ready to continue the good works of the outgoing governor and even better it”, he said.
Speaking on the topic: ‘Leadership, Stewardship & Transiency: Islamic Perspective’, Sheik Muhammad urged political office holders to be mindful of the fact that they got into the political offices through the vote of the masses, urging them to always put smiles on the faces of the common people. Chief Imam of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, Sheik Musibaudeen Orimadegun, who also spoke at the event advised politicians to always consider the needs of the masses, advising them to concentrate on programmes that will have positive impact on the common people.
