    Aregbeshola needs to be careful. Nigeria is a secular nation and must be respected as such and not bastardized. Will the governor have declared public holiday to mark the first day of other religions in the state? If so, how many public holidays would he have declared?
    One can only wonder and ponder what would eventually become of this governor.
    People need development and not separation along religious line in Osun state which happens to be my state so Mr. Governor focus on how to develop Osun state and make it a modern state.
    It is development that we need and not division so please continue to develop the state.
