…as Adeleke vows to emulate and replicate Makinde’s Infrastructural development drive in Osun state
Osun state governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke has said that the ongoing Infrastructural development drive in Oyo state under Governor Seyi Makinde has become enviable and that his state is already toeing the same path in Osun.
According to Western reports, this was as Governor Makinde declared that contrary to speculations in the media, he and Adeleke, who he described have aligned ahead of the peace talk within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in southwest West.
Adeleke, who paid a courtesy visit to Governor Seyi Makinde, said he felt at home being in Oyo state to see what he described as great transformational works in Oyo state.
This was as the two governors shook hands and embraced each other in what appears to be a significant first visit of the Osun state governor to Makinde’s office since his emergence as Osun Governor and Makinde’s reelection in the 2023 guber poll.
Adeleke, who paid an unscheduled courtesy visit to the Oyo state executive council meeting at the Governor’s Executive Chamber declared that the brotherhood and bond between Oyo and Osun states remain cordial just as his personal relationship with Makinde remains strong.
Adeleke said he was returning from a working vacation to Bangkok in Thailand and decided to stop by in Ibadan to visit Governor Makinde, who he said is not only making Oyo state proud but the whole of the south western region.
Speaking with Governor’s Office Correspondents in Ibadan today, Adeleke said he could not have missed the visit to Makinde, who he described as his brother regardless of the political speculations in the media.
“I’m glad to be here, you know Osun state used to be part of Oyo state so, we’re brothers. I’m just coming from a working vacation and I thought coming from Lagos, I can’t just go straight to Osun, I have to come and pay a visit to my brother, governor Seyi Makinde.
“I’m here to tell him that I love him and he’s doing a good job in Oyo state and to give him our report card too, that listen, the infrastructure that you’re doing in Oyo state that made him win his second term, it has begun in Osun state too, massive infrastructure and also to discuss matters of the south west with him.” Adeleke said.
In his brief remark, Governor Makinde reaffirmed that his relationship with Adeleke remains cordial saying, “like my brother said, we’re one and we discussed issues about the unity of our party in the south west and alignment, we’re aligned.”
Makinde, who gave a hint at taking a break from work to embark on vacation next year described Adeleke as looking fresh jokingly said he may also visit Bangkok for his vacation.
