The Osun State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday advised its counterpart from Ekiti State to grow up and be matured in its approach to politics, warning that at no time should politics be mixed with governance.
The Ekiti APC had in a statement by its spokesperson Taiwo Olatunbosun lampooned Aregbesola for visiting his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayo Fayose on October 1st in commemoration of the 20 years anniversary of the state.
But responding yesterday, the Director of Publicity of APC in Osun State, Mr Kunle Oyatomi, said: “Politicians should grow up and they should know the difference between governance and politics. Aregbesola is the head of government in Osun just as Fayose is the head of government in Ekiti.
“We are in a federation in which these two governors don’t necessarily have to belong to the same party.
“Their differences in political alignments do not stop interaction between the two as heads of their various governments; neither should the interaction between them be politically given.
“It will be irresponsible for any head of government to visit another head and then begin to throw political insults on him simply because one abhors the politics of another.
“Aregbesola has shown maturity in his interaction with Fayose. To criticise him for doing so, is not politically correct.” Osun APC said.
