Adeleke Appoints Himself and Deputy as Visionary Commissioners for Osun State Government



Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has made headlines by appointing himself and his deputy, Kola Olawusi, as commissioners for the key portfolios of Works, Sports, and Special Needs. The move came as part of a recent swearing-in ceremony for 25 newly appointed commissioners, each assigned various responsibilities to serve the state.

During the inauguration at his office in Osogbo, Governor Adeleke emphasized the importance of responsive governance that caters to the needs and aspirations of the people. He stressed the values of honesty, integrity, transparency, and accountability in public service, warning against any corrupt conduct that would face severe sanctions.

Governor Adeleke’s vision for the state is rooted in innovation and resourcefulness. He encouraged the appointed commissioners to think outside the box and implement new ideas to achieve significant results, even in times of economic challenges.

The governor, known for his collaborative approach to leadership, urged his team to work together cohesively, with a common goal of making a positive difference in the lives of the people of Osun State. He emphasized the importance of due process and adherence to the rule of law, making it clear that cutting corners would not be tolerated.

The swearing-in ceremony saw other appointees receiving their portfolios as well. Notably, one of Aregbesola’s allies, the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, was reassigned to the Information and Public Enlightenment portfolio. Biyi Odunlade, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), took on the responsibilities of Political Affairs and Inter-Government Affiliation.

Governor Adeleke read out the names and portfolios of the appointed commissioners, showcasing the diversity of responsibilities within the state government. Among them are Dr. B. T. Salam (Regional Integration and Special Duties), Morufu Dele Ayanfe (Science, Information, and Communication Technology), and Dosu Babatunde (Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs), among others.

The new Commissioner for Health, Sola Akintola, a lawyer, will play a vital role in the state’s health sector. With the appointments now in place, the Governor’s administration is geared towards addressing the needs and concerns of Osun’s citizens.

Governor Adeleke’s decision to appoint himself and his deputy as commissioners raises eyebrows, but his emphasis on teamwork and commitment to service may alleviate concerns about any potential conflicts of interest. Time will tell how the newly sworn-in commissioners will perform in their respective roles and contribute to the advancement of Osun State.
