Hijab: Monitor Aregbesola’s Actions, PDP Tells Interpol, Security Agencies


By Yinka Kolawole in Osogbo

Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Sunday urged all security agencies, Interpol, the Presidency and the United Nations to dispassionately monitor activities of Governor Rauf Aregbesola which the party claimed can cause religious crises in the country.

The party, in a statement issued in Osogbo on Sunday and made available to THISDAY  by its spokesperson, Prince Diran Odeyemi, premised its call on what it tagged the “embarrassment and the insincerity of Governor Aregbesola over the hijab issue which is a diversionary tactic to cover up his mismanagement of the state human and material resources.”

The opposition party said even at the peak of Boko Haram activities when churches and mosques were under severe attack by the insurgents, Christians and Muslims in the country were not divided and still cohabit in all the states of the federation.
