Former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has lauded Governor Ademola Adeleke for proving his critics wrong by being a dancing but hard working Governor in the governance affairs of the state.

During his address at the 16th Harvest Anniversary and Thanksgiving Service held at the Love of Christ Generation Church C&S in Victoria Island, Lagos State, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo cited the Governor as an example of a leader who is not ashamed to praise God despite occupying highest office in the state, positing that dancing and working for God and the people are things to be proud of.

“Mr Governor, they call you a dancer. But you are dancing to praise God. And I heard you are working hard for your people”, Chief Obasanjo who spoke in Yoruba language affirmed.

In an event attended by the Ooni of Ife, His Majesty, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Osun State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Adewale Egbedun and members of Osun House of Assembly, Chief Obasanjo said dancing to praise God is noteworthy especially with the reports of good developments happening in Osun state.

He called on the Ooni of Ife and other royal fathers to support the Governor to deliver more urging the Governor to continue to work closely with traditional rulers, elders and stakeholders in the state.

Speaking at the event, Governor Adeleke said his habit of praise God is to celebrate the owner of heaven and earth, saying he is never ashamed to hold unto God through song and dance.

The Governor noted that several men and women of God predicted his governorship, therefore, his reason for praising God for the prophecy that has come to pass.

“I do this in several places of worship. My covenant with God is also to truly deliver dividends of democracy to my people. In 100 days in office, I did what many could not achieve in four years.

“We reformed the public service, attended to workers welfare, constructed and reconstructed over 40 kilometers of roads, implemented free medical surgeries with more than 40,000 beneficiaries.

“We are working on super overhead bridges to ease connectivity. We are reforming the education sector. We are building up our agriculture sector. I am working to make Osun state a reference point.

Governor Adeleke however, sought for prayers and supports for him to record outstanding success during his administration.
