An Abuja-based human rights lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, has hailed the Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke and the newly selected 22 members of his cabinet.
Recall that, Adeleke, on Wednesday, swore-in the new commissioners and announced their portfolios after their screening by the Osun State House of Assembly.
The governor declared himself as the State Commissioner for Works, with his deputy as commissioner for Sports and Special Needs.
The PUNCH reported that, Olajengbesi, who is also a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, in a statement issued on Thursday said with Adeleke’s choice of cabinet members, the state would record positive strides on several developmental indices.
He said, “The 25-member State Executive Council is a perfect and winning team. All the personalities appointed are outstanding and stellar in quality, character, and professionalism.
“The team of technocrats carefully handpicked by the governor will guarantee steady progress and geometric development of the people of Osun State was certain.”
He also congratulated Wole Jimi-Bada on his appointment as the Commissioner of Justice and Attorney General of the state.
He described Jimi-Bada as a right peg in the right hole, adding that as the chief law officer of the state, he will bring his dedication, mastery of law and experience garnered over the decades to establish justice, fairness and the rule of law in Osun.
Olajengbesi, a Managing Partner at Abuja-based law firm, Law Corridor, tasked the appointees to work harmoniously with Senator Adeleke for the progressive development and growth of the state.
