Governor Adeleke issues new directives in first day in office

cancels 'state of Osun'


Governor of Osun, Ademola Adeleke has issued a new set of directives on his first day in office as the top citizen of the state.
Speaking during his inauguration in Osogbo, the Osun state capital, Adeleke, a former senator representing Osun west, who was elected governor on July 17, said that his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola took decisions that did not follow due process and were not in the best interest of the state.
“My good people of Osun, since you elected me as your governor on July 16, 2022, which the Independent National Electoral Commission announced on July 17, 2022, the former governor, alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola, maliciously started putting roadblocks to make things difficult and almost impossible for the new administration to serve you,” he said.
“Mass employment was carried out without budgetary provisions for salary payments for the new employees, even when the state was struggling to pay salaries and deliver other services.
“Those actions were indeed vindictive measures against the people of Osun state for voting them out of office.
“Consequently, I hereby issue the following directives which will be backed up with appropriate executive orders:
“Immediate freezing of all government accounts in banks and other financial institutions.
“Immediate establishment of a panel to carry out an inventory and recover all government assets.
“An immediate establishment of a panel to review all appointments and major decisions of the immediate past administration taken after July 17, 2022.
“An immediate reversal to the constitutionally recognised name of our state, Osun state. All government insignia, correspondences and signages should henceforth reflect Osun state rather than state of Osun which is unknown to the Nigerian constitution”, added Governor Adeleke.
He promised that, “Under my watch as the governor of Osun state, I will boldly correct all past injustice, corrupt acts or policies by any previous administration which are against the collective interest of our people.
“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.”
