Aregbesola said that Tinubu mentored him in Lagos State and facilitated his emergence as Governor of Osun State.
He said that the establishment of Nigeria Immigration Service Passport office, Fire fighting office and Agro Ranger Office in Oyo town, which people praised him for, was done by Buhari and executed through him as the Minister of Interior.
“If any appreciation and gratitude could be given to me, I want to believe greater appreciation should be given to the two people I mentioned.
