I am resolutely committed to my electioneering promises – Gov Adeleke
Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke today joined other worshipers at Osogbo Central Mosque to the admiration of all and sundry to perform the Jumat Prayer for the first time as Executive Governor of the state.
Addressing the congregation, Governor Adeleke said this was to fulfil his pledge that if he emerged victorious in the poll and was sworn in, he would observe the first Jumat Prayer in the mosque in appreciation of the spiritual and political support.
He assured the congregants that he remained resolute in fulfilling all his electioneering promises, calling for more support to enable him to succeed in making life better for the citizenry.
Governor Adeleke commended the Ataoja of Osogboland, Oba Jimoh Oyetunji Olanipekun, who was also at the service for his unflinching support which nearly pitched him against the past government.
In response, the Ataoja of Osogboland, Oba Jimoh Oyetunji Olanipekun appreciated the Governor for his love for Osogbo, assuring the governor of total support of all Osogbo Indigenes at home and Diaspora in the bid to transform Osogbo and Osun State in general.
Earlier in his sermon drawn from Quran chapter 42 verse 43, the Chief Imam of Osogboland, Sheikh Musa Animasahun called on the governor to forgive whoever offended him, having been patient during the days of struggles as a gubernatorial aspirant.
The Chief Imam who lauded the governor and charged him to hold firmly to the tenets of Islam said he would be among creatures that would be blessed by Allah.
The Governor, who paid an unscheduled homage to the Ataoja, was accompanied by a cheering crowd from the mosque to the palace, where the Ataoja ìn council welcomed the Governor.
