Aregbesola: To mark his 60th birthday, Governor takes a walk around town
Governor embarks on walk alongside hundreds to mark his 60th birthday.
As part of activities lined up to mark his 60th birthday celebrations, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola led a fitness and health walk round the streets of Osogbo, the state capital, early Saturday morning.
Aregbesola is Governor of Osun, one of Nigeria's southwest States.
On the march with Aregbesola were deputy Governor, Otunba Grace Titi Laoye-Tomori, chief of staff, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, the deputy speaker of the House of Assembly, Hon Akintunde Adegboye, Osun APC party chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun and several others.
The exercise was tagged “Walk to live”.
"Walk to Live" has been a highlight of the Aregbesola administration, particularly during his first term.
The walk with the people is aimed at promoting healthy living as well as creating a sense of unity and productivity among the people of Osun, State officials said.
It was organised by friends and associates of the Governor.
Turnout for the solidarity walk was impressive; with hundreds trooping out for the event.
Many shops and business were shuttered with just about everyone opting to partake in the walk.
The week-long celebration continues on Sunday with an interdenominational Church service holding at the Nelson Mandela freedom park in Osogbo by 4pm.
