This book is about Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the political cat with the proverbial nine lives. This is Ogbeni?s story, the people?s governor and the bête noire of the PDP in Osun state. This is his biography. Who is Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola? Where did he grow up and who were those that shaped his formative years and which political forces burnished his years of activism as a young man? How did he systematically turn the state of Osun around in eight years to the envy of his political traducers and critics? How will history judge the first democratically-elected chief executive of Osun state to govern the Land of Virtues for eight action-packed years in quarter of a century?

This is the first detailed biography of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola written by two US-based biographers/authors. It is titled: ?Omoluabi? which in Yoruba literally means: ?A Paragon of Virtues? which adequately captures the persona and quintessential ideology of Ogbeni Aregbesola. This is the authoritative biography of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, the Governor of the state of Osun (2010-2018) Federal Republic of Nigeria.
