The details of the meeting between Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State and the members of the State House of Assembly have emerged.
Naija News reports that the governor visited the Assembly during plenary on Monday to solicit their support in the running of his administration, days after the lawmakers disagreed with him on some of his Executive Orders.
Addressing the lawmakers, Adeleke promised that his government will not abandon any of the projects embarked on by the previous administration, stressing that government is a continuum.
The governor urged the lawmakers and the people of the state to join hands with him to move the state forward, saying that everyone must be ready to play their part.
Adeleke asserted that his administration will be an all-inclusive government where the citizens will be happy and peace will reign supremely in the state.
He said: “Now that election is over, I want everyone to join me to move the state forward, government can not do it alone. For us to have an enviable state, everyone must be ready to play their part for the state to move forward.
“I promise that my administration would not cheat anyone, it will be an all-inclusive government where everybody will be happy and peace will reign supremely in the state.”
In his remarks, the Assembly Speaker, Timothy Owoeye, promised that the House will do everything to support the government, saying they may only disagree with the executive based on facts of the law and not sentiments.
He said: “Your Excellency, you and your team have the utmost task of strengthening the Executive-Legislative relationship, it is most important considering the differences in the ideology of our political parties. We must also allow the rule of law to guide our actions, behavior, and activities during this period.
“Under my leadership, be rest assured that this Assembly will support your administration according to best global practices. Also, it is important that your administration continue to uphold the rule of law and principles of fair hearing. Any deviation from this path may lead to a State of anarchy and crisis.”
