The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has come out to state that he used his first week as governor to set the tone for good governance and to take charge of his administration.
Naija News reports that Adeleke said his decision to issue six executive orders in his first week as governor was to dismantle all illegalities and clean up the mess he inherited.
According to him, the man he succeded had step several traps for him on his journey to being a governor, so he had to take those steps to set the tone for his administration.
The governor was reported to have said on Sunday at a thanksgiving service at Eternal Sacred Order of Cherubim and Seraphim in Oke Gada, Ede that he had to overcome several conspiracies and the resolute campaign of calumny from within and outside the party.
In a statement signed by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, Adeleke noted that he can not praise God enough for the journey so far.
He submitted that “We passed through tough days before we reached here. I can’t but constantly praise God, my brother, my sister, my political associates, my friends and the great people of Osun state.
“That massive support accounted for my hitting the ground running a week ago. That was why I issued those executive orders to dismantle all illegalities and clean up the mess I inherited.
“The man I defeated set many traps for my administration but we are removing all the evil structures they put in place.
“I have used the first one week to take charge and set the tone for good governance. From the new week, I will continue the great work. We are shaking up the system; we are unveiling and commencing the implementation of our agenda.
“I thank the people of Osun for their love and show of huge backing. I reassure them that all my actions will continue to be in the best interest of the state.
“All what I have done and will still do are to serve the people, meet their aspirations, and restore good governance in Osun State.”
