Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was sworn in yesterday, Sunday, November 27, 2022, at the Osogbo City Stadium, Osogbo.
Adeleke became the Governor of Osun, after he was administered the oaths of allegiance and office by the State’s Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele-Ojo.
Meanwhile, the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has reversed the name of the State from “State of Osun” to “Osun State” and also reversed its appellation from “The State of the Virtues” to “The State of the Living Spring”.
Adeleke also reversed all appointments made by the immediate past governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, effective from July 7, 2022.
Governor Adeleke also ordered that all government bank and other financial institutions should be frozen and also called for immediate establishment of a panel to carry out an inventory and recover all government assets.
Governor Adeleke has thus pleaded to the people of the state to give his administration few weeks to review and sort out all the actions and malicious confusions which the immediate past administration has created since July 17th 2022.
In his statement,
“Your Governor will be a people’s Governor. I will be accessible, responsive, consultative and proactive in handling small and big matters of State Governance.
“I know that as a product of the collective will of you my people, there is a heavy weight of history on my shoulders and I accept the urgency of your expectations, the depth of your aspirations and your conviction in me to build a better State. ”
