Osun Gov Ademola Adeleke commissions Crescendo Sports Lounge in Osogbo

...charges youths to risk investment opportunities 



Osun State Governor Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke has commissioned Crescendo Sports Lounge in Osogbo, urging the youths to take advantage of the enabling environment of the current administration of Osun State.


He tasked the youths to take investment risks and count their gains, even in the face of economic downturn bedeviling Nigeria.


This assertion was made by the Honourable Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Rev. Bunmi Jenyo, who represented the Governor at the commissioning of the investment project at Alekuwodo Osogbo, on Friday 23rd February, 2024.


Recall that the commissioner paid a final inspection tour to the project site barely a week ahead of the day of commissioning.


Crescendo Sports Lounge, a subsidiary of A1 Pinnacle Services Ltd, in partnership with the Osun State Government, is a realization of a dream of the current administration to turn Osun from Civil Service State to an industrialized one.


The Commissioner described the Sports Lounge as a laudable achievement of Governor Adeleke, whose yearning is wooing local and international investors, since his assumption of office, now yielding positive and physical results.


"I make bold to say that, what we are commissioning today is the first of its kind in the entire South West region. The materials, especially, the synthetic grass are of international standard. Its strategic location will no doubt attracts sports lovers within and outside the State. By this project, some of our youths will be gainfully employed and their mental alertness developed through various sporting activities. These will equally boost the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR)", the Commissioner said.


According to the Commissioner, " the phase we are commissioning today is just the first phase. As you can see, the phase II, that will house other indoor games will equally be completed and commissioned in no distant future. Mr. Governor, as a lover of Sports, will be on ground to cut the tape".


He appealed to  the "youths and all sport lovers to use the opportunity of this facility to develop their God-given talents. An adage says 'an idle hand is the devil's workshop'. Don't just pay to watch a match, but develop your skills as well". 


"People who can risk investment are the ones to make gain in such an adventure. If there is no risk, there is no gain at the end of the day", he said.


"I want to laud the efforts of the Chief Executive Officer of A1 Pinnacle, Mr. Tunde Oladimeji, for deeming it fit to contribute his own quota to the development of our dear State. Other interested investors are assured of enabling environment to drive their businesses" Rev. Jenyo stated.


The Commissioner was accompanied by the Management team of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

How I Manage Osun Palliatives and Resources-Governor Adeleke

How I Manage Osun Palliatives and Resources-Governor Adeleke


Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has accounted for how Osun palliative was managed under his watch.


According to a report, Adeleke shed more light on his management of state resources including palliative measures initiated by his administration and those supported by the Federal Government.


While responding to reports and questions raised by some groups in recent days, the State Governor through his spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed urged commentators to always avail themselves of publicly available facts about government programs so as not to be perceived as serving opposition interest.


He stated that; "This administration has deliberately filled the public space with its  plans and intentions across the sectors. The Governor has embraced openness and transparency. Our commentators should avail themselves of critical facts and figures instead of twisting and falsifying publicly verifiable details about state governance."


'On pallinative distribution in Osun State, we urge the civil society to always engage in thorough field review before taking positions especially as most of the questions raised could have been answered either through desk research or direct freedom of Information requests to the relevant government agencies."


"Rice distribution was handled by a non-governmental committee chaired by Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria and populated by representatives of various non-governmental groups. The inauguration of the committee and its activities were widely covered by the media."


"As for the N2 Billion palliative expenditure, we urge the group to officially contact the government if it has legal fulfillment to do so within the framework of the Freedom of Information Act especially as the group has shown mischief and refusal to accept details severally released by the government on the administration of palliative measures in the state."


"Ongoing in Osun are multiple government programmes which have at its core palliative interventions such as the wage awards for pensioners and workers that is going to run for six months, sustenance of payment of half salary and pension debt inherited from previous government, the three billion naira plus cooperative loans for artisans and small businesses, the soft medical programs like free medical surgeries for pensioners, expansion of free grants to the poor of the poor in Osun state, and expected delivery of new buses to widen transport access, and affordability."


"In the interest of educated discourse, It may interest the group to note that Osun is spending far above the said two billion naira which is a loan to states and which the Federal Government has even asked the state governments to start refunding."


"It was also false to assert that the Governor has added N2 billion to the N100 billion infrastructure fund as the state has spent far above the N2 billion in service of the needs and aspirations of her people in this hard time."


"As a responsible government, the state project account has not in any way stopped the state government from implementing many laudable palliative programs listed above."


"As to what Osun is doing with allocations to the state, we hasten to remind the group that there is an elected government in place with a mandate to govern and deliver on good governance within statutory structures and platforms and with appropriation laws to which all are bound."


"How government funds are being disposed of and expended are governed by laws and the group can reach the public account committee of the House of Assembly for the annual public account report or take hold of the 2024 budgetary act to read how state funds are allocated across sectors and projects."


"Without ascribing bias, we further educate the group to at least read of the state Governor's plan on food security which he has presented at the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and for which he has impaneled a committee chaired by the Commissioner for Agriculture."


"To whoever may be ignorant of publicly available reports on state plans on food security, the agenda covers farm security, strategies for expansion of food production, unclogging farm transportation logistics, easing food access at affordable prices, and hosting a back-to-farm event with government incentives."


"On the issue of court closure, the facts are out as the implementation of the tripartite agreement for the resolution of the dispute depends on the Chief  Judge calling a meeting of the State Judicial Service Commission especially as the Governor has ordered the implementation of areas that affected the executive arm in the agreement."


"Why the group is blaming the Governor for failure to summon a meeting of the Judicial Service Commission beats all imagination and confirms again the known reality that the said group is unknowingly serving the opposition's interest. "


 Or is the group asking the Governor to intervene in a judicial matter that is clearly within the purview of the state Chief Judge?


Or why is the group so protective of the Chief Judge to the extent of lacking the courage to ask the head of the state court to call a meeting of the judicial. service commission?  


Or is the group calling for the jettisoning of the agreement to which even the national body of JUSUN was a signatory?


"On the Osun mining space, we equally remind the public that the government inherited a messed up sector with a deep level of corruption and lack of accountability."


"A reform was launched by the new mining office which is addressing issues of environmental protection, respect for community development, securing of the state mining license, and fruitful negotiation to validate Osun's shareholding in major mining firms."


"Again, the group failed to acknowledge the ongoing reforms which openly covered environmental protection and which are gradually changing the face of the Osun mining sector for the better."


"To learn more about great happenings within the Osun mining sector, we will invite the group to a forthcoming stakeholders’ forum on Osun mining reform. He concluded.

The Osun State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism Hon. Abiodun Ojo has expressed shock and extended his condolences message to Gov. Ademola Adeleke, Chief Mrs. Modupe Adeleke Sanni, and the entire Adeleke family over the sudden death of Alhaji Aderemi Sanni, the husband of Yeyeluwa Modupe Adeleke. 


Hon. Abiodun described Alhaji Sanni as an embodiment of Yoruba culture, wisdom, and a man who lives a God's fearful life. 


He said, 

Even after 24 hours of his passage to the great beyond, I still find it difficult to believe that Alhaji Sanni is no more, I can't forget so soon how he stood by us during our struggling days to rescue Osun State from the immediate past holder. It's been since I know Alhaji and am aware of his philanthropist gestures which have touched so many lives. 


While we continue to pray to God Almighty to rest the soul of Alhaji Aderemi Sanni well, my heartfelt condolences to Gov. Ademola Adeleke, Chief Mrs. Modupe Adeleke Sanni, the entire family of Adeleke and Sanni, though the vacuum is irreplaceable, the damage is irreparable and the loss is too big to bear but I believe God Almighty will be with the families and friends to endure this sad and hard moment of mourning our beloved one.

NEWS RELEASE: ADELEKE HAS NOT TAKEN ANY LOAN– OSUN GOVT

NEWS RELEASE: ADELEKE HAS NOT TAKEN ANY LOAN– OSUN GOVT


••• APC SUFFERING FROM FINANCIAL, ACCOUNTING ILLITERACY


OSOGBO



The Osun State Government has denied a fake report that it obtained a Ten Billion Naira loan facility in 2023, asserting that Governor Ademola Adeleke did not take any loan and is not planning to take any  such loan now or in the near future.


Describing the report as a demonstration of either ignorance or mischief , the Commissioner for Information, Oluomo Kolapo Alimi said all current indebtedness of the state were contracted by previous governments of the All Progressive Congress.


According to the Commissioner, since inception in November 2022, the current government has been servicing inherited debt and ensuring project implementation where the loan is tied to any project like the Ilesa Water Project.


Hon Alimi posited that as a responsible government with a focus on legacy attainments, Governor Adeleke adopted a no-loan policy which he has maintained since assuming office.


We recognize the deficiency of the person behind the latest hoax to misrepresent the Adeleke administration, but the mistake he and his backer made is failing to intelligently scrutinize the erroneous claim before going public.


What the opposition mischievously  calculated as loans are World Bank and other multilateral institutions projects like NCares, Ramp and Ilesa Water Project. Is the opposition asking Osun state to opt out of many beneficial multilateral projects which are inherited from previous governments?



We affirm that the State government will  continue to support the people of the State in alleviating poverty through the Nigeria Covid-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus (NCARES) with reimbursement from the World Bank through the Federal Government. This forms part of what the mischievous attackers are parading as loans taken by the State government.


We invite the public, particularly the Osun people to recall that the Rauf Aregbesola administration secured a facility from the Islamic Development Bank for the execution of the Ilesa Water Work project at the twilight of that government. 



The facility which totalled $65 million, was structured in such a way that it is provided upon need for any aspect of the project.


Between 2018 and 2022, the Gboyega Oyetola administration received several  billions of Naira from that fund. What the Osun APC minion misread for a fresh loan under Governor Adeleke, was the continuation of the flow of the fund for the Ilesa Water project and other multilateral projects like the NCARES, Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAMP), State Action Business Enabling Reforms(SABER) among others.



The public will recall that the current administration on inheriting the Ilesa Water project for which the loan was taken undertook a major cleaning up , stopping major corruption and setting the project on a sustainable path of completion and value for money.


As much as we recognize the failed bid of the opposition in Osun amidst its frantic search for fault finding no matter how ridiculous, we however expected a bit of informed postulation as against the illiterate understanding of state finance the Osun APC has so far demonstrated.


We assure the public of this administration's financial discipline. As such, this government will not repeat the horror of the reckless borrowing that crippled the state and inflicted untold pains on the people in the past. 


The current government  has not taken any fresh loan and has no plan to do so, but the administration is making  use of the available resources, assets and liability, to the benefit of the state and its people.


Therefore, the public should discountenance the false alarm of the remnant of the deeply factionalized Osun APC. The PDP government is not financially illiterate and it is busy with clearing the financial mess of the previous APC government.

OSUN STATE : Governor Adeleke Unveils Food Security Plan, Preaches Unity on Economic Crisis

OSUN STATE : Governor Adeleke Unveils Food Security Plan, Preaches Unity on Economic Crisis


OSOGBO



24 hours after Mr President’s meeting with state governors, Governor Ademola Adeleke today unveiled his government’s food security plan as he advocated national unity to resolve the current national economic crisis.


The Governor who attended President Bola Tinubu’s briefing with Governors on Thursday was at the Federal Ministry of Agriculture today during which he opened up on the extensive agenda of the state government on food security and expanded food production.



Hosted by the Federal Minister of Agriculture, Senator Abubakar Kyari, the Osun Governor accompanied by his Commissioner for Agriculture, Tola Faseru said “these are emergency eras in the economic life of this nation. 



“We therefore have a duty to look and act beyond partisan politics and ensure collective efforts towards restoration of normalcy. A federation works best when component units join hands for common good”, the Governor told the minister.


“ It is in that line that I am here today. The first reason is to brief you on what the Osun state government is doing on the issue of food security and ongoing economic challenges facing the nation. 







“Mr President yesterday briefed the state governors on the state of the nation. He outlined several steps state governors should take to stem the crisis of food security and inflation.


“ I am happy to report that the Osun government has been very proactive. First, we are setting up a State Security Trust Fund to mobilise financing for security agencies. This is going to be private sector driven. 



“Secondly, I have conveyed a food security meeting for Monday to brainstorm on how to further secure our farmlands. I will be meeting representatives of Hunters Association and the Amotekun commanders alongside the civil defence and police services. The goal is to strengthen farm security. 



“Our administration is also working on Small Farmers’ Equipment Lending service. This is to ease the access of small-scale farmers to tractors and other needed machineries. We are meeting this week to finalise the plan ahead of the onset of the rainy planting season.


“To expand food production, we are also pushing to implement a City to Farm programme. This was designed to encourage young small-scale farmers. This will expand production and also engage our youth. 



“This is alongside our plans for a regional farmers’ markets where offtakers can meet farmers for exchange and market relationships.

We need your technical support to implement many of the listed areas.


“On a more general level, our administration recently unveiled a Cocoa Revival plan for the state. It involves several activities which focus on moving Osun from 3rd to 1st cocoa producer in Nigeria. We seek partnership with the federal Ministry of Agriculture on this.


“Our government is also interested in the livestock development programme. We have submitted our expression of interest. Kindly help to facilitate early approval.


“The state is also interested in the Agro-processing zones project being implemented under the African Development Bank. I hosted a delegation of the AFDB in Osun two weeks ago. Your ministry’s support on this is also solicited.


“Overall, I seek an MOU with the ministry to ensure standby collaboration with our government. I will be glad if we can have a small committee to oursure the making of the MOU”, Mr Governor told the Minister and top management of the federal ministry.


Responding, Senator Abubakar commended the multi-partisan approach of the Governor to state governance, pledging to work on all the areas touched by the Governor.


He restated the determination of President Bola Tinubu to address the national economic challenges, informing the delegation that the meeting with the Governor was part of a broad plan to ensure immediate resolution of the current dislocations within the economy.


While describing the state governments as key partners in national economic development, the minister expressed happiness on the proactive measures listed by the Governor and assured him of federal support and assistance.

Governor Adeleke lauds Owolabi's investment in public schools, says the govt-alumni partnership initiative is on course

Governor Adeleke lauds Owolabi's investment in public schools, says the govt-alumni partnership initiative is on course





The Executive Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke has commended Dr. Owolabi Gbenga Ayodele for complimenting the state's government efforts to rejig the infrastructure of public schools and enhance learning environment, saying that the generous donation of school chairs and tables at Asipa Community High School in Asipa will benefit the students greatly.


Governor Adeleke who praised Dr. Owolabi for showing interest in improving the condition of learning for students, said the investment is in line with his administration's govt-alumni partnership board initiative purposely put up to upscale the infrastructures of public schools in the state.


The Governor maintained that education is the foundation and the future of any society and so, should not to be left for the government alone to shoulder its burden, noting that Dr. Owolabi has been able to demonstrate that private individuals can indeed make a significant difference in ensuring a brighter future for our children and the state through investment in their school's facilities.


"I'm indeed impressed by the gesture of Dr. Owolabi Gbenga Ayodele to provide 100 school chairs and tables to Asipa Community High School, Asipa, and want to sincerely appreciate him for complimenting our government's effort to improve the learning environment of our students," the Governor noted.


Governor Adeleke added that the donation of 1000 note books to Asipa Community High School students and other secondary schools in Origbo, Ife North Local Government will have a lasting impact on the lives of beneficiaries just as his upcoming scholarship award for public students in that local government will open the gateway to a promising future for the eventual beneficiaries.


"When I hosted the Ilesa Grammar School Old Students Association some days ago, I unveiled the govt-alumni partnership board, which I said would tap into private individuals for necessary support to improve the situation of our schools," the Governor pointed out.


"I must express my admiration for the wonderful intervention of Dr. Owolabi in Asipa Community High School as it not showed his compassion and commitment but also deep desire to ensure that students in public schools can succeed without any form of hindrance.


"He has challenged other well-to-do in our society to partner with the government in addressing the critical challenges in our public schools, which includes investing in infrastructure upgrade and provision of essential facilities that will promote qualitative learning. Like Dr. Owolabi, you can start with your alma mater and let's make a difference that will leave a lasting impact on students.


"On behalf of the good people of Osun State, I appreciate Dr. Owolabi for his support for education in Osun state and look forward to him for more impactful intervention for his community and Osun people as a whole."

"He has challenged other well-to-do in our society to partner with the government in addressing the critical challenges in our public schools, which includes investing in infrastructure upgrade and provision of essential facilities that will promote qualitative learning. Like Dr. Owolabi, you can start with your alma mater and let's make a difference that will leave a lasting impact on students.


"On behalf of the good people of Osun State, I appreciate Dr. Owolabi for his support for education in Osun state and look forward to him for more impactful intervention for his community and Osun people as a whole."

Governor Adeleke Commissions new Fire Service Trucks, Promises to Unveil Disaster Management Strategy

Governor Adeleke Commissions new Fire Service Trucks, Promises to Unveil Disaster Management Strategy


Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke on Monday commissioned newly bought fire service trucks for the state fire service.

According to a press statement signed by the spokesperson to the Governor Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the governor promised to soon unveil the state's disaster management strategy.


The statement further confirmed that the last time the state government bought fire trucks was during the Olagunsoye Oyinlola administration while former Governor Rauf Aregbesola was on record to have repaired the trucks.


Speaking at the commissioning, Governor Adeleke said the two new trucks mark the first phase of the fire service sector reform, promising that more trucks are on the way.


“Today, I kick started phase one of our administration’s reform of the fire service sector. This is the start of an expanded reform which will include the provision of fire fighting trucks, equipment accessories, training of personnel and implementation of national standards for disaster prevention. 


“When we took office, the fire service was down. The service lacks appropriate fire fighting equipment. The sector was largely neglected. Our team decided to focus attention on re-equipping the service because of its importance to the state economy.


“Disaster management is a key element of every economy. Unfortunately, this is a sector mostly overlooked. Failure to manage disaster issues can wreck homes, individuals, businesses and even a state. We must all join hands to ensure preventive practices.


“Our government is working on a disaster preparedness management strategy. The Secretary to the State Government is to work on an inter-ministerial committee to fast track the process”, the Governor noted.


Welcoming the Governor, the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Hon Rasheed Aderibigbe told the gathering that the last 12 years has been the worst in the life of the state fire service.


He recalled that disaster management was accorded very low attention under the previous APC administration, commending Governor Adeleke for his holistic approach to governance especially the renewed attention to the fire service sector .


“We thank His Excellency for reviving the fire service. These trucks and more that are still coming will go a long way to strengthen.the capacity of the service to curtail incidents of fire outbreak”, the Commissioner posited.


The event was attended by the Head of Service, Mr Ayanleye Aina, members of the State Executive Council, special advisers and other government functionaries.

How Government-Alumni Partnership Board will Operate- Governor Adeleke

How Government-Alumni Partnership Board will Operate- Governor Adeleke

● Board, 1st of its Kind in Nigeria-Asiwaju of Ijeshaland






Governor Ademola Adeleke has shed more light on the operational procedures for the proposed Government-Alumni Partnership Board designed to harness alumni contributions for the development of the education sector.


He made the elaboration at the 90th Year anniversary celebration of the Ilesa Grammar School where he was conferred with the award of the ‘Most Benevolent Leader’ by the Alumni Association of the school under Engr Obisesan Daramola.


Governor Adeleke who listened all through the anniversary lecture presented by Dr Akin Fapohunda, class of 1969, said the partnership board is going to operate on a Public - Private Partnership Model, adding however that the board will be private sector driven.


“ I have directed the Ministry of Education to consult widely while putting up a framework for the operation of the board. It is not going to be another bureaucratic set up. No, it is going to involve a private sector driven structure.


“We are open to ideas on how best to make the board functional and strong enough to fulfill its mandate. My team will reach out to all stakeholders in the process of putting up the structures.


“ The paper submitted by the guest lecturer will also be closely studied . I noted all the brilliant ideas. We will make the board as simple as possible. The main goal is to ensure that alumni groups alongside the Parents and Teachers Associations play prominent roles in the development of our schools”, the Governor noted while accepting the award.


He told the gathering at Ilesa that his administration is implementing multiple programmes to enhance the state of education, citing ongoing complete rehabilitation of schools, recruitment of teachers, planned integrated retraining of teachers and planned e-learning project to address the question of access to instructional materials.


On the general policy focus of his administration, Governor Adeleke narrated his government ongoing implementation of a multi-billion naira infra upgrade, the diversification of state economy through new cocoa revival plan and new creative industry agenda, the reform of the mining sector to widen revenue base, the ongoing execution of a state digital economy agenda among others.


Presenting the award on behalf of the alumni association, the Asiwaju of Ijesahland , Chief Yinka Fasuyi, described the Government-Alumni Partnership Board proposed by the Governor as the first of its kind by any state government in Nigeria.


“ This is unprecedented and unique. We are really impressed that you have this plan and you have given the due directive for the making of an.implementation framework. Mr Governor, we are pleasantly surprised.


“We thank you profusely for all you are doing for Ijeshaland. We appreciate your support and positive action on the University of Ilesa. We thank you for our sons you placed in a key office within your administration. You have our backing to do more for the greater glory of our dear state”, Chief Fasuyi stated.


The Chairman of the Anniversary celebration committee, Dr Wale Boluwaduro, described Governor Adelekw as an impressive achiever who within a year has transformed the state and placed it on a trajectory of people centered development.


“You earn the confidence of Osun people. You satisfy the expectation of the association, and there is no doubt you have our backing for a second term in office”, Dr Boluwaduro noted.

NEWS RELEASE: Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa Commentary on Osun Unfair, Biased

NEWS RELEASE: Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa Commentary on Osun Unfair, Biased


Our attention has been drawn to the persistent attacks on Governor Ademola Adeleke by Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa Esq over the state of the judiciary in Osun state. His recent outbursts are consistent with his unjustifiable political attacks of last year which were clothed in judicial advocacy. 


His piece of last year contained factually incorrect narrations on which he then built an equally jaundiced conclusion. Those errors in the first piece called to question if truly the piece originates from the Comrade Senior Advocate of Nigeria. We know his pedigree but we are worried about his turn of focus and attention. Even at that, we resolved to remain silent, assuming it was probably one of those mistakes in activism.


We are however constrained to respond now that he has released another misdirected attack. It has become obvious that the first write up of last year was not an error; it was a deliberate hatchet job full of uninformed guesses and conclusions. The benefit of doubt granted last year cannot continue in the face of open evidence that our comrade was indeed contracted to mount attacks on a performing Governor, well loved by his people.


In the new piece, the barrister actually admitted he goofed in previous write up, owning up that he was later informed that judicial workers actually wrote petitions against the State Chief Judge and that indeed there are complaints from the workers against the Chief Judge. Yet, he failed to apologize to Governor Adeleke whom he used unprinted labels on in his infamous write up. It would have been more honourable for the comrade to own up, apologize and abandon the brief to denigrate a Governor who is simply, happily and diligently serving his people.


In his new piece, he disingenuously built on the error he had admitted, heaping the blame for the judiciary strike in Osun state on the state Governor. This is the same man who owned up to the fact that the judicial union had welfare and operational disputes with the head of the state judiciary. Is Governor Adeleke the head of Osun state judiciary? 


In his commissioned write up, the comrade deliberately remained fully silent on the head of the state judiciary. If the courts are in crisis, a well meaning writer will question what action the Chief Judge has taken to resolve the matter. Why is Adegboruwa unwilling to call into question the role of the Chief Judge on welfare and operational issues affecting the judicial staff union under her? Is Governor Adeleke in charge of disputed issues the union is complaining of?


Additionally, the Comrade opted to be blind to several efforts of Governor Adeleke to resolve the matter despite the fact that he is not the head of the state judiciary. If Adegboruwa is happy to be silent on the role of the head of the judiciary, he should have been magnanimous enough to acknowledge the positive interventions of Mr Governor. He pretended to be unaware because admitting such would expose the head of the judiciary that he was commissioned to protect.


For records, the judicial staff union levelled several operational and welfare allegations against the Chief Judge which include among others the withholding of salaries of some judicial workers, non payment of ward robe allowances among other allowances, alleged abuse of power, police brutality and issues over fund mismanagement. These among others are issues included in the union’s petition before the National Judicial Council.


Mr Governor actually went out of his way to ensure the payment of withheld salaries of the judicial union as a way of putting an end to the strike. He proceeded to inquire about the allowances until it was discovered that the funds had actually been released to the Judiciary. Just a few days ago, the  Governor hosted a delegation of the national leadership of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, appealing for interventions to resolve the industrial disputes. What else is Adegboruwa expecting the Governor to do especially when he is not the head of the judiciary?


While avoiding the crux of the matter because of his fear of the NJC, the Comrade proceeded to propound a jaundiced theory of necessity of a state of emergency. Because the head of an arm of government has failed to manage workers under her, then the whole state government should be brought down? Isn’t that a warped logic from a troubled mind? What an imbecile way of constitutional interpretation? 


If an arm of government is not functioning, the question should be why. In this case, the non-functioning is because the workers have complaints against the head of their sector, in this case, the Chief Judge, a matter that is before the NJC. Third parties such as the national leadership of the union and even the State Governor are intervening for an amicable resolution. Adegboruwa should ask what the head of the judiciary is doing instead of making baseless advocacy out of hatred for the Governor and out of his protection of the Chief Judge.


How a SAN woke up to hold a Governor rather than the Chief Judge responsible for strike action by judicial workers over welfare issues is still a mystery. 


We notify the comrade that his unholy intervention in Osun politics is fast eroding whatever is left of his goodwill garnered as a fearless comrade. If he continues on this path, we will henceforth resort to treating him as a hack writer on a mission against the government and people of Osun state.

Official: Olu of Awolowo Remains in Office says Governor Ademola Adeleke

Official: Olu of Awolowo Remains in Office says Governor Ademola Adeleke






Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has on Friday affirmed that the Olu of Awolowo town (Garage Olode), Oba Yekinni Olayemi Olasoji Omisore, remains in office


The Governor urgede members of the public to ignore any rumour of the monarch’ s suspension or removal from office.

The spokesperson to the Governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed in a statement issued in Osogbo, Osun State capital, the State Governor said the insinuation that the monarch has been suspended following the release of the white paper, is not true and mere fabrication.


"White paper is about due process and rule of law"  

The Governor posited that the release of the white paper on chieftaincy issues is to foster peace, progress and serenity in affected communities and not about confusion.


"It therefore became imperative to emphasize that the status quo in Awolowo town must be maintained since the chieftaincy issues around the stool are before the court of competent jurisdiction."


The already installed Monarch of the town, Oba Yekinni Olayemi Omisore remains valid until otherwise pronounced by the courts of competent jurisdiction.


"Every insinuation, rumour or hearsay concerning the stool should be disregarded as it does not reflect the true position of the state government."


The Governor noted that the state is aware of  an amended writ of summons by Prince Adeposi Adewusi, since 11th May 2022, held at Ifetedo, in the Ifetedo Judicial Division in the High Court of Justice, Osun State but that the status quo should remain until conclusion of the court process.


It would be recalled that Oba Yekinni Olayemi Omisore was previously elected by the kingmakers and his name forwarded to the Ooni of Ife, HIM Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, who approved and forwarded it to Osun State Government through Ife South Local Government.
