The monarch had congratulated Adeleke asking people to cooperate with him.
Recall that the monarch had earlier promised the All Progressive Congress 90,000 votes before the election
“I am confident of delivering 90,000 votes for Governor Oyetola.” he said.
However, the election was far below the Oba’s expectations as the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) lost to the opposition PDP.
In a statement signed by his Press Secretary, Alli Ibraheem, and posted on his social media handle, the monarch called on collaborative support towards Adeleke so that Osun would continue to be great in the face of global economic hardship.
The statement reads: “I congratulate the Osun State Governor elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke on his victory at the keenly contested poll. He has demonstrated an uncommon courage, tenacity to have survived many hurdles. His life is a lesson for many aspiring youths. There is always reward for hardwork.
“I look forward to having an Iwo man as the Osun State Governor if God permits! I pray for divine wisdom, courage and understanding for Senator Ademola Adeleke to effectively manage Osun State affairs.”
