On the 16th
day of March 2012, we caused a letter to be written on our behalf by our
Executive Director, Barr. Kayode Ajulo to the Personal Physician of His
Excellency Rauf Aregbesola, the Governor of Osun State.
under reference duly authorized by the resolution of the Board of Trustees of
Egalitarian Mission, Africa is one of our numerous interventions in Africa towards
achieving our mandate which in summary is to promote good governance,
principles of equality, adherence to the rule of law and all the tenets of
democracy as well as peaceful co-existence in Africa.
It should be
noted that our request is not unconnected with vituperative utterances and
ostensibly uneasy, higgledy-piggledy, hoarse, rambling, irrational actions of
H. E. Rauf Aregbesola, which has become more manifest since his ascendancy as
Governor of Osun State and of which H. E. Rauf Aregbesola wittingly and
unwittingly has exhibited clear symptoms of insanity.
our Executive Director has been visited with some obviously sponsored attacks
against the Missions committed and permissible request.
refuse to join issue with these paid agents, we wish to reiterate that our
request has basis in the sacred provision of our Constitution as Section 189
(1) (b) of the Constitution as amended provides for medical examination as may
It is our
trust that the wellbeing of the government and good people of Osun State
presently lies on the shoulder of H. E. Rauf Aregbesola who must not only be
fit and proper to carry the duties and responsibilities of office of the
Governor of Osun State with excellent level of sanity and good judgment.
therefore expected that having put his state of mind into question by his
actions and omissions which run contrary to the accepted behaviour of the
person of his office, his Personal Physician needs to conduct medical
examination on H. E. Rauf Aregbesola, a public officer, to ascertain his state
of health and accede to our request.
In view of the
above, we still maintain that our request is legal, permissible and
constitutional, bearing in mind the provision of Section 182 (1) (c), 189 (1)
(b) and section 2 (2) of Freedom of Information Act 2011 LFN for the reason
that the sanity of our leaders must be evidently determined, particularly when
such leaders have put their sanity into question by their act and/or omission.
once again, our determination, having being compelled in the spirit of respect
for Section 189 of the Constitution as we refused to be distracted,
intimidated, and blackmailed.
resolute in our undertakings as we hold it to be true that Osun state, Nigeria
and well as the entire Africa community must be governed in accordance with the
Egalitarian Mission Africa
