Aregbesola calls for Probe of coup allegation
Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State has called for investigation into allegations that politicians are putting pressure on the military to stage a coup in the country.
Aregbesola moved the motion while performing his first legislative function after being honoured with Honourary Life Membership of the Osun State House of Assembly in Osogbo as part of the activities marking his 60th birthday anniversary.
Aregbesola said the House must pass a resolution commending the Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Buratai, for his thorough professionalism and belief in the current democracy.
He said the probe into the coup allegation would bring any erring officers to book.
He said: “I have also made the strident call for a political system and practice that is best suited for our clime, which will bring inclusion and amount to real political empowerment for all the people.
“I have after our revered leaders, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief Bola Ige, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and others, all convinced federalist, argued that for a plural society like ours, true federal practice is a minimum condition of statehood.”
