Oluwo Backs Adeleke For Second Term


Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, on Tuesday, said royal fathers in the state were in support of Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, for a second term in office.

This was as the governor declared that his administration had recorded success in the areas where opposition party members did not give him a chance to succeed.

Oluwo and Adeleke spoke in Osogbo at an Inter-religious service held at the state secretariat, Abere, to usher in the government and the state into the new year.

Oba Akanbi, who lauded the governor’s efforts to improve infrastructural amenities in the state, further said “Governor Adeleke is the driver of the Osun government, and by this, it is imperative for everyone regardless of political divides in the state to continue to support the administration to succeed.

“Governor Ademola Adeleke, I’m declaring on behalf of other traditional rulers in the state that we’re fully in support of your government and its continuation for a second term in office.”

Adeleke, in a statement by the spokesperson to the governor, Olawale Rasheed, said his administration had broken the jinx in critical areas and proved that people could experience good governance despite all odds.

The statement quoting Adeleke further read in parts, “My predecessor deliberately added petrol to the fire by laying several bobby traps before he left office. Nobody expects solutions from us. The thoughts of detractors were the expectation of failure.

“But because we have a God who does not fail his beloved ones, doors open where none exist. The governance space witnessed policy innovations and implementation which provide answers to knotty state policy questions.”
