PROTOCOLS

I CONVEY MY HEARTFELT HAPPINESS AND APPRECIATION TO TOP LEADERS, FRIENDS, ALLIES, FAMILY MEMBERS AND ADMIRERS WHO THRONG THIS EVENT TODAY TO HONOUR ME, MY FAMILY AND MY DEAR PEOPLE OF EDELAND.

I CRAVE THE INDULGENCE OF THIS IMPORTANT ASSEMBLY TO RISE FOR A MINUTE IN HONOUR OF MY LATE BROTHER, THE FORMER ASIWAJU OF EDELAND WHOSE BIG SHOE I AM STEPPING INTO.

(A MINUTE SILENCE)

I PRAY THE GOOD LORD GRANT HIS SOUL ETERNAL REST.

THE EVENT TODAY IS HISTORIC FOR MANY REASONS. THE FIRST IS THAT IT MARKS A FAMILY TRADITION AS MY LATE FATHER WAS THE BALOGUN OF EDELAND
WHILE MY LATE BROTHER WAS THE FORMER ASIWAJU OF EDELAND. HERE I AM TODAY BEING HONOURED WITH THAT SAME TITLE.

ON BEHALF OF MY FAMILY, I THANK KABIYESI, HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS, THE TIMI OF EDE LAND AND THE ENTIRE PEOPLE OF THIS ANCIENT TOWN FOR KEEPING FAITH WITH MY FAMILY.

KABIYESI, WE NOTE THAT THIS CONFERMENT IS A COMMENDATION FOR THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF MY FAMILY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS TOWN. IT IS EQUALLY A FURTHER CALL TO SERVICE.

AS I AM ACCEPTING THE TITLE OF ASIWAJU OF EDELAND TODAY BEFORE GOD AND MAN, I DEDICATE IT TO MY LATE FATHER AND MOTHER; TO MY LATE BROTHER, SENATOR ISIAKA ADELEKE; TO MY BIG BROTHER, DR ADEDEJI ADELEKE; AND TO MY DARLING SISTER, THE YEYELUWA OF EDELAND, CHIEF DUPE ADELEKE-SANNI.

I VOW TO BE A FRONTLINER (ASIWAJU) OF DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH FOR EDELAND AND OSUN STATE AS A WHOLE.

I WILL CARRY THE LIGHT OF POSITIVE TRANSFORMATION FROM TOWNS TO VILLAGES AND FROM CITIES TO RURAL AREAS ACROSS OUR DEAR STATE.

TO ALL ASIWAJU TITLE HOLDERS OF VARIOUS TOWNS IN OSUN STATE, I WELCOME MYSELF INTO YOUR MIDST.

ON A LIGHTER MOOD, I BELIEVE YOU ARE EAGER TO RECEIVE ME NOT JUST AS THE ASIWAJU OF EDELAND BUT AS THE ASIWAJU OF OSUN STATE.

DEAR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES, YOUR PRESENCE TODAY STRENGTHENS MY RESOLVE TO FURTHER DEVOTE MYSELF TO THE SERVICE OF THE PEOPLE.

YOU WILL CONTINUE TO FIND IN ME A TRUE PEOPLES’ SERVANT, A GOOD LISTENER AND AN AGENT OF GOOD GOVERNANCE.

AS I ASSUME THIS NEW ROLE, I SEEK THE COOPERATION, PRAYERS AND SUPPORT OF ALL AND SUNDRY FOR OUR DEDICATION TO TAKE OSUN TO A GREATER HEIGHT.

FRIENDS AT HOME AND ABROAD, JOIN US AS WE INTENSELY DELIVER DIVIDENDS OF DEMOCRACY.

I THANK YOU FOR LISTENING.

GOD BLESS OSUN STATE

GOD BLESS THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

HE, SENATOR (DR) ADEMOLA ADELEKE, THE NEW ASIWAJU OF EDELAND
