Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has justified the six executive orders he issued in his first week as governor of the state.
He explained that he used executive orders to take charge and set the tone for his administration in his first week of assumption of office.
The governor disclosed this at a thanksgiving service at Eternal Sacred Order of Cherubim and Seraphim, Oke Gada, Ede, on Sunday.
In a statement by his spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, Adeleke said that he passed through several travails before he eventually achieved his dream of becoming governor.
“We passed through tough days before we reached here. I can’t but constantly praise God, my brother, my sister, my political associates, my friends and the great people of Osun state.
“That massive support accounted for my hitting the ground running a week ago. That was why I issued those executive orders to dismantle all illegalities and clean up the mess I inherited.
“The man I defeated set many traps for my administration but we are removing all the evil structures they put in place.
“I have used the first one week to take charge and set the tone for good governance. From the new week, I will continue the great work. We are shaking up the system; we are unveiling and commencing the implementation of our agenda.
“I thank the people of Osun for their love and show of huge backing. I reassure them that all my actions will continue to be in the best interest of the state.
“All that I have done and will still do are to serve the people, meet their aspirations, and restore good governance in Osun State,” the statement quoted him as saying.
