Osun inauguration: Ademola Adeleke takes office as sixth executive governor

The sixth executive governor of the State, Adeleke, will be sworn in today, Sunday, November 27, 2022, to begin a four-year term.

On July 16, 2022, Adeleke defeated Adegboyega Oyetola, the leading candidate and outgoing governor of the State, to win the Osun governor’s race.

After losing in the same party in the 2018 gubernatorial election, Adeleke ran as a candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and won the election.

Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate for the general election of 2023, is in the State for the swearing-in ceremony.

A breakdown in law and order before, during, or after the inauguration ceremony has been prevented, according to the Nigerian Police, Osun State Command, and other sister security agencies in the State.

Faleye, CP While making the assurance, Sunday Olaleye also issued a warning to anyone with criminal intent to stay away from the State because the Osun Police Command was well-positioned to make it uninhabitable for them.

Additionally, parents and guardians were admonished to prevent their kids and wards from becoming political pawns.

“As we conclude this first tenure, we are confident that we didn’t break our pledge to you or let you down. We stayed true to our election promises and to our word to you. Although it was our desire to continue serving you, we are unable to do so because to the results of the July 16 governorship election, which we are currently contesting in court.

“As a law-abiding government and citizen, we are stepping aside to let the legal process play out.

“However, we hope to continue helping you in the near future. We have complete faith in God that we will return soon, just as we have implicit faith in the judiciary to uphold the rule of law in the matter at hand.

“We are optimistic that this brief political eclipse will end. The sun will rise once again, brighter and warmer, and the participatory governance and sustainable development that we enshrined, both of which have received praise from national and international organizations and will be revived and placed on a more secure and solid foundation.
