Free Akara (beans cake) is reportedly being shared at the entrance home of the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola amidst his absence at the ongoing Osun State gubernatorial election.
The former Osun State governor is expected to cast his vote in Ilesa East, Ward 8, Polling Unit 1 but he has jetted out of the country.
According to TheCable, residents around the country home of Aregbesola in the Ifofin area of Ilesha were given Akara.
The resident said they are yet to see the minister whom they said usually arrived in his hometown on election eve.
“By now, everywhere will be bubbling with activities, because Aregbe would have entered since Friday.”
Naija News earlier reported that a media aide to Aregbesola, Jane Osuji disclosed that the former Governor of Osun State is currently not in the country.
Osuji further stated that the Minister of Interior is in Germany representing Nigeria at a programme.
Some of his aides who spoke on the minister’s availability, however, said he would vote before voting ended.
