The Governor accused his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola, of taking some malicious actions against him, including the appointment of permanent secretaries.

Adeleke thus ordered the “immediate freezing of all government accounts in banks and other financial institutions. Immediate establishment of a panel to carry out an inventory and recover all government assets.

“An immediate establishment of a panel to review all appointments and major decisions of the immediate past administration taken after the 17th of July 2022.

“An immediate reversal to the constitutionally recognised name of our state, Osun State. All government insignia, correspondences, and signages should henceforth reflect Osun State rather than State of Osun which is unknown to the Nigerian constitution.”

Governor Adeleke was elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the governorship election in July.

He floored the incumbent Governor Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who sought re-election.

The PDP candidate won 17 of the 30 local government and was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
