It was very easy for Aregbesola to win the Governorship race with Adeoti's experience of Osun Politics. Adeoti is a grassroot Politician Who started his Politics from the scratch and Rose to the Peak. His experience can't be Over compared to other Politicians in the Progressive family.
Adeoti is a Progressive to the core, He has never deviate from the Progressive fold not until when he was cheated by the APC Leaders in the last Governorship Polls. Adeoti was the SSG to the Former Governor, Rauf Aregbesola for almost Right years. He resigned his Position as the SSG when he wanted to contest for the Governorship Polls.
Adeoti defected from All Progressives Congress APC to his new party, ADP when he discovered the Governorship election will not favour him but Gboyega Oyetola who was also the chief of staff to the former Governor Rauf Aregbesola. Within the short Period of time Adeoti defected to the Party, he was able to pulled a total votes of Forty thousands plus.

Adeoti deserves to get the next Governorship Ticket in Osun State. Afterall, it is the turn of the Osun West Senatorial district to present the next Governor in the state and he( Adeoti) deserves the Ticket. It will recalled that Alhaji Adeoti left the APC when he made it known to the Party Leaders that it's the turn of the west to Produce the next Governor in the state then on the basis that the West is being marginalised by The Party Leaders.
Oyetola who was from Osun central Senatorial district was given the Governorship ticket in the Party after the Senatorial has Produced the Governor like two terms. The Party still go Ahead and give the Party's ticket to the Senatorial district. Meanwhile, Adeoti and some other Governorship Aspirants from West were marginalised.
Now that Adeoti has returned to the Party, he deserves to be given the Governorship Ticket. Adeoti is from the Osun West Senatorial district and he is from the district. It is the turn of the Senatorial district to Produce the next Governor and Adeoti deserves the Ticket.
The APC should not make the mistakes of given another Senatorial district the Governorship ticket if the Party don't want to loose the next Governorship election in 2022. The opposition Party in the state may hijack the Party from the ruling APC if care is not taking.
