Adeleke: Osun Will Lead Massive Agricultural Revolution Under My Watch

Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has asserted that his leadership style embodies progressive ideals and favours development over political gamesmanship.

Adeleke made this statement while hosting the Olunisa-In-Council, led by Oba Joseph Fasikun, who visited the Government House in Oke-Fia, Osogbo, on Saturday to express their community’s support for Osun State.

The governor expressed surprise at the defection of Shuaib Oyedokun, former National Deputy Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), to the All Progressives Congress (APC), despite there being no internal conflicts in the PDP.

“Baba rallied support for me, attended stakeholders meetings and opposed dissenting voices in the party. He remains our father and we are expecting him back to our party.

“The meaning of progressive is to prioritise the development of the people like what I am doing. I have been constructing roads, this will create connectivity between rural and urban areas, it will contribute to agricultural development because that is where we are returning to now with this economy. Osun will lead massive agricultural revolution.

Adeleke referenced Chief Obafemi Awolowo, a foremost nationalist and true progressive, who, during the era of the old Western Region, used agricultural proceeds to fund development, free education, and numerous other initiatives.

“I have progressive mind by constructing roads that were abandoned. I am completing the projects that were abandoned by past administrations. I am committed to policy of continuity regardless of any political affiliation. I am committed to the policy of good maintenance culture.

“I have spoken with Kwara State Governor because I will commence work on Osogbo/Ikirun/Inisa/Ila-Odo road to Kwara boundary. I have rehabilitated roads out of love for my people. I am so concerned about them.”

Adeleke added that his government has been correcting the mistakes and misdeeds of the past government by paying the backlog of workers’ salaries including the pensioners, paying attention to citizens’ health and education among others.
