We members of the Ikirun Elders Forum again wish to express our sincere gratitude to the Executive Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke for his thoughtfulness and for extending developmental strides of his administration to Ikirun. We have it in our record that the first road to be completed and commissioned by the Adeleke’s administration is Osogbo/Ikirun/Ila-Odo road which was completed to Ikirun axis courtesy of Governor Ademola Adeleke who mobilized the contractor back to site within few weeks of assumption of office, which gesture materialised and was top on the list of the 100 days celebration of the Administration. We will never forget the intervention of Governor Adeleke who rescued Ikirun from imminent breakdown of peace which enveloped Ikirun as a result of the Akinrun chieftaincy stool which was almost bastardized by the immediate past administration but which Governor Adeleke corrected by issuing executive order and setting up of a chieftaincy committee to resolve the matter. Ikirun indigenes and elites will forever be grateful to Mr. Governor for coming to the rescue and for delivering us from the hands of miscreants and thugs being sponsored by some desperate politicians so as to occupy the stool illegally. That correction to the glory of God would remain evergreen in our memory and the generation yet unborn will forever pray for Governor Adeleke for saving our ancestral land and the respected Akinrun stool, a first class traditional institution in Osun State.

We acknowledge other interventions of Governor Adeleke in the area of education and health which has not left Ikirun out, including the 100 billion naira infra plan which has Ikirun as one of the major towns in Osun to benefit from the flyovers and underpasses being built by this administration. We look forward to the flag off of the Ikirun axis of the infra plan very soon, Mr. Governor.

However, we are concerned with the level at which some individuals in Ikirun, especially those who felt unhappy with the state government’s decision with regards to the Akinrun chieftaincy, are now embarking on recruiting thugs into their folds in an attempt to force their way to the place, illegally. The lead figure in this dastardly move is well known, and we want Mr. Governor to charge the security agencies in the State to be on guard at all times in order to curb the activities of these miscreants and their sponsors. Our utmost priority as elders is the peace of our town and we call on all meaningful and genuinely concerned Ikirun indigenes and elites to join hands with the government to ensure that the gathering of these notorious thugs and miscreants is nipped in the bud.

We also call on Mr. Governor to consider more Ikirun indigenes in the distribution of appointments both in the political circle and within the State Civil Service. We assure Mr. Governor of our support at all times. We wish his administration a huge success and we pray God Almighty to continue to guide and protect Mr. Governor.

Long live Osun State!
Long live Ikirun land!!!
