Former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has showered praise on Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke for his unique leadership style that combines dancing and diligent governance.
Chief Obasanjo made this endorsement 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 Obasanjo hailed Governor Adeleke as a leader who isn’t hesitant to express his devotion to God, even while holding the highest office in the state.
He emphasized that dancing and serving God and the people are indeed commendable traits in a leader.
The event was graced by prominent figures including the Ooni of Ife, His Majesty, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Aare Dele Momodu, Publisher of Ovation Magazine, and members of the Osun State House of Assembly, among others.
Chief Obasanjo praised Governor Adeleke’s dance of praise as a laudable act, especially in light of the positive developments occurring in Osun state.
He expressed his belief that God, whom the Governor is praising, will continue to bless the state and its government.
“Mr. Governor, they call you a dancer. But you are dancing to praise God. And I heard you are working hard for your people.
“Again, I learned you are a listening leader. They said you take advice from the young and old. I am happy to hear that.
“I call on His Majesty, the Ooni of Ife, and other royal fathers to support the Governor to deliver more. Mr. Governor, continue to work closely with traditional rulers, elders, and stakeholders of your state.
“I charge Kabiyesi Ooni to always host close-door meetings with the Governor. God whom the Governor is praising will continue to support him.
“The God whom you are praising will shower his blessings on your state and government. I associate with you.”
In his remarks at the event, Governor Adeleke explained that his habit of praise worship is a way to celebrate the Creator and show gratitude for fulfilling the prophecy of his governorship.
He affirmed his commitment to delivering dividends of democracy to his people and highlighted key achievements in his first 100 days in office, such as public service reforms, road construction, and free medical surgeries.
“I seek your prayers. I solicit your support. We are committed to God and the people.
“Several men and women of God predicted my governorship. I am here to praise God for the prophecy that has come to pass. My communion with God is to come back to thank and praise him.
“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 worker’s welfare, constructed and reconstructed over 40 kilometers of roads, and 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.
“I seek your prayers. I solicit your support. We are committed to God and the people”, the Governor concluded.
