The governor-elect of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has promised to restore governance with peoples’ welfare, accountability, and effective service delivery as watchword of the his administration
Adeleke, in a statement he personally issued on Saturday to mark the 31st anniversary of the creation of Osun State, paid tributes to the founding fathers and previous governors of the state.
The governor-elect said the state is currently heavily challenged in all sectors, promising to restore citizens’ faith in government through responsive leadership.
He said, “I felicitate with sons and daughters of Osun State on this auspicious occasion of the 31st anniversary of the creation of our dear state. Our state has come a long way. We pay tributes to the founding fathers and praised them for their invaluable contributions to the struggle culminating in the making of Osun. I applaud previous leaders of the state, both military and civilians as the cumulative outcome of their labour accounted for the successes recorded so far in state building.
“I however dare say that the dream of the founding fathers are yet to be realised as conceived. We must change the narrative and I am set with God and our people, to take up this consecrated assignment.
“As a Governor, I will not shut the door against our people. I will not act and govern as all knowing. At ‘Ipade Imole’, we will take monthly inputs and ideas from our people. On my table will be a “Citizen Interactive Platform” for real time interface with our people. I will be a true peoples’ Governor,” Adeleke stated.
