Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP), presidential candidate, has sent congratulatory messages to the newly inaugurated Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, describing him as dogged and resilient.
Obi said this while wishing Adeleke a fruitful and productive tenure as governor, congratulating him on his victory and inauguration as the sixth governor of Osun State.
Adeleke, an uncle to Davido, a popular Nigerian singer, was inaugurated as the governor of Osun State on Sunday.
In a series of tweets, Obi wrote: “I congratulate the Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke @AAdeleke_01, on his inauguration and formal commencement of the elected mandate of his people.”
“I salute the doggedness and resilience of Governor Adeleke, and wish him a fruitful and productive tenure, in the service of his people. -PO”
The newly inaugurated governor defeated his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola, during the July 16 governorship election in the State. He won the election as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after losing out in the 2018 gubernatorial election.
