Flanked by the Secretary to the State Government, Hon Teslim Igbalaye and the Chief of Staff, Hon Kazeem Akinleye, the Governor said he has “the deepest of respect for traditional institutions long before I assumed the governorship.
“The foundation of governance in Africa is the traditional institutions. That was why my first point of call as the governor was to assemble and brief you, our fathers, about the state of finance. I remember I gave you full details about the huge debt I inherited from the previous government.
“Since we took over, we have judiciously managed the state finance. We enforce due process and we place emphasis on welfare of workers and people of Osun state;
“My administration is implementing a far reaching infrastructure upgrade of Osun state. Across the local governments, we ensure roads and bridges are being constructed and rehabilitated. We are refurbishing schools and health centers. We are making strong headway in the health and education sector. Our imole free medical surgeries are ongoing across the nine federal constituencies.
“We are reforming the sports sector. Our administration only recently rolled our series of initiatives to boost the sport sector. The reform of the mining sector is ongoing and our climate agenda was just nationally commended by the National Council on Climate Change.
“Our government has given Osun state the first ICT and Tech innovation policies. We are implementing a robust digital economy agenda. We are also working on a new electricity market policy and legislation. The ministry of power will soon unveil our electricity sector agenda since power has now been moved to concurrent legislative lists.
“I assure you of my deep commitment to service delivery. Our team is primed to continue to deliver good governance and dividends of democracy”, Senator Adeleke posited.
Speaking earlier, Oba Abolarin commended the Governor for his massive delivery of democratic dividends to the people of Osun state alongside his pro-people style.
“On behalf of all royal fathers, I applaud Governor Adeleke for his successful governance so far. There is no doubt that you have positively impacted the state since you took over”, the royal father remarked at the closed door meeting.
