The Governor-elect of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adekele, has promised not to disappoint the people of the state.
HausaToday reports that Adeleke who contested under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defeated the incumbent Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola in the just concluded gubernatorial election in the state.
Governor Oyetola, who was the standard flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), garnered 375,027 votes during the polls and came second behind Adeleke who polled 403,371 votes to win the election.
Speaking to The PUNCH, the former lawmaker, who is the uncle of award-winning international musician Davido, stated that he is prepared to serve.
Adeleke said, “My election by the good people of Osun State is divine. I am prepared to govern. I am also not unaware of the many challenges facing the people of our state. I want to assure you and the people of our dear state that I won’t disappoint them.
“I have the capacity to lead the state and I will do it with the fear of God. I shall provide the needed leadership. I have learnt a lot within the last four years when our first mandate was stolen.
“I promise not to disappoint the people. We shall prioritise our needs and I can assure you that the needs of the people shall be our priority. Osun people have suffered enough, they need to smile and laugh like their counterparts in other states that are working. We shall make that possible.”
