Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State says he and members of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state are not threatened by the defections of some party members to opposition parties.

Sola Fasure, the media aide to the governor, said in a statement on Sunday, that Mr. Aregbesola made the remark at a rally organized by the Speaker, State House of Assembly, Najeem Salaam, in Ejigbo.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that some APC members in the state had defected to opposition parties in the past few weeks ahead of the September 22 governorship election in the state.

However, the governor said the party remained strong on account of its wide acceptance by the people of the state, adding that the defections would not in any way affect the party’s victory in the forthcoming election.

He said that members of the party were committed and united, regardless of gale of defections from the party.

“This defection has made us to know those that are genuinely with us and those that are not with us.

“We have known friends, enemies and cunning individuals among us by this defection but we are not afraid of their antics as we remain united, strong and committed.

“We are confident of victory. We know God is on our side and we believe in Him; we believe He will lead us to victory”.

Mr. Aregbesola said his party was working hard to sustain the tempo of continuity, which according to him, can only set the state on the pedestal of all round development.
