Osun Omoluabi Progressives Inaugurate State Coordinators


By Yusuf Olatunji 

Newly inaugurated state coordinators of the Omoluabi Progressives, a caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun have been advised to uphold Omoluabi ethos in the discharge of their duties.

This was stated by the former Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, who is the grand-patron of the group in Ilesa on Sunday.

“I want you all to imbibe the ethos of Omoluabi in the new position you have been elected into. I recall there was a time I served at the lowest level in my ward in Lagos, cleaning chairs for political meetings amongst others, but look how far God has brought us.

"I never for once fought or forced myself to be anything in political leadership. I have always been called to serve by my leaders. So I want you to also see this as an opportunity to serve our people,” Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola stressed.

He also pointed out that the essence of Omoluabi is to imbibe the age-long ethos of Oduduwa, emphasizing that the Yoruba are his children.

“Your attitude and behaviour in society must distinguish you. Omoluabi is a contraction of 'Omo ti Olu-Iwa bi's (the descendants of the  paragon of virtue).

“You must therefore ensure that you are distinguished in your community and that Omoluabi Progressives is well represented,” Ogbeni Aregbesola stated.

The meeting which had in attendance, five leaders representing each local government in the state, witnessed the presentation of reports by the leadership of each local government on the progress of the group in their respective areas.

Also speaking after the inauguration, the newly inaugurated State Leader, Alh. Azeez Adesiji, stated that he and others see their call to leadership as a call to serve.

“Our nominations and appointment to this revered position of leading the Omoluabi Progressives at the state level is a clarion call to serve and not to lead.   

“Today, we are being entrusted to coordinate a cause to liberate ourselves from the grip of evil-minded political aristocrats, who have continually appropriated to themselves alone the accrued resources of our hard earned democratic gains. 

Above all, we are to reenact the commitment and strong will  of yesteryears, which gave us our mandate on 26th November 2010,” Alh. Adesiji stated.

Also inaugurated were leaders of federal constituencies, state administrative secretary and state organising secretary, amongst others. Sunday's ceremony  followed the earlier inauguration of Ward and Local Government executives of the group in August 2023.
