A group loyal to the  former Governor of Osun State and current Minister of Interior, Mr Rauf  Aregbesola has said that they are waiting for directive of their principal to join the campaign train of the All progressives Congress (APC) in the State for the incoming general elections.

The group known as Blue Movement, said it is only Aregbesola that can ask his followers to join the campaign train of the party for the forthcoming elections.

The group with thousands of  members in each of the 30 local governments of the state, including the area council, Modakeke, said it was still waiting for the directive from Aregbesola, whether to join the presidential campaign train in the state, since there is no official invitation from the leadership of the party.

Members of the sociopolitical group insisted that “APC is Aregbesola’s party and Aregbesola is APC in Osun, as far as we are concerned.”

Speaking at the weekly stakeholders’ meeting of the group in Osogbo, the State Coordinator of the group, Mr. Wale Alabi, said they remain core members of APC in the state.

Alabi, who described members of the group as core loyalists of the Minister of Interior, said they believe so much in the political ideology of the former Osun State Governor.

Describing Aregbesola as a core progressive, Alabi expressed optimism that the internal wrangling within the progressive folds would soon become a thing of the past.

He said: “the Blue Movement is a political group within the APC party. That’s where we are.

” By the special grace of God, we are not willing to leave the progressives. So as far as the presidential race is concern, we have a boss.

“Though we have some individuals who do not want peace within APC, I want to believe that all our crisis would be resolved God’s willing. If the crisis is resolved tomorrow, we are ready to work for the party based on the directive of our boss, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

“We are not willing to do anything other than whatever Aregbesola is doing and as you can see, he has not even given his support to any other candidate because he was not called and he was not involved in the scheme of things.

“That does not mean that he is willing to support other candidates.”
