The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu exchanged pleasantries at the South-West APC meeting held in Lagos State house on Friday evening.
The former Governor of Osun State and Tinubu were seen shaking hands in a picture taken during the meeting.
There had been claims that Tinubu and Aregbesola were not on talking terms during the build-up to the governorship primary of the party in Osun State.
Aregbesola back in February 2022, had reportedly stated that he trusted Tinubu, but the former governor of Lagos state betrayed him.
The minister spoke in the Ijebu Jesa area of Osun State while addressing APC members in the state.
Aregbesola said, “We came back home to reposition our party to where it was meant to be because we followed the leading of our leader that we thought was a noble and reliable fellow. We followed him (Tinubu) dutifully with all sense of loyalty.
“Some people even thought that we were no longer Muslims because of how we cooperated with him. We dealt with him without treachery but we never knew he planned evil for us. We exalted him beyond his status and he turned himself to a god over us and we had sworn to ridicule anyone who compare himself to God. God has no competitor; He is enough to be God.”
The late Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi before his death also tried to end their differences.
The APC leaders, however, greeted each other at the meeting which was held on Friday.
