Vice-presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Delta, Ifeanyi Okowa, yesterday, congratulated Senator Ademola Adeleke on his inauguration as the sixth Governor of Osun State.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba, Okowa described Adeleke’s emergence as “the entrance of light for Osun people” and prayed that his assumption of office would serve as a precursor for the PDP to recover Nigeria from current challenges.
He noted that the election of Adeleke signposted the reality of PDP’s determination to rescue Nigeria, saying: “The mission is still on course.
“It is heart-warming to witness your inauguration as sixth Governor of Osun against all odds and I am grateful to the electorate in Osun for shunning entreaties of retrogressive forces.
“It is my prayer that God will grant you wisdom, knowledge and the needed resources to attend to your campaign promises of taking away the darkness that pervades your state, Osun,” he added.
He also thanked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for demonstrating true independence as required by the laws of our land and for improving the logistics and conduct of the election.
