In his words, “I heartily congratulate our new Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke on his election as Governor and his recent swearing-in ceremony. We believe that it is the lord’s doing for him to be the Governor of our dear State at this time.
“I want to urge him to rule the State with the fear of God and with the love of the masses at heart. With this two things in mind he will hardly commit any errors. He should always remember that the people of the State willingly gave the mandate through their votes and he should not let them down.
“I strongly implore him to fulfill all his promises to the people especially as it concerns Civil Servants and retirees. He should endeavor to pay the backlog of salaries and the pension of retirees because it is their due and they have laboured for it”. He stated.
