Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has expressed deep concern as the immediate past governor of the state, Gboyega Oyetola is yet to congratulate him after his victory at the court.
Governor Adeleke poured out his mind when he featured on Arise TV Morning Show on Monday.
In a report by the Punch, Adeleke who said he was open to working with the former governor said he was yet to hear from Oyetola
In his words, “immediately after the news of the Appeal Court (judgement), I tried to reach out, I called him – the former Governor Oyetola – to let us forge ahead to move Osun forward, but up till now, he has not called me to congratulate me and I’m still hoping that he will do that because we don’t have any other state than Osun State here. So, I’m ready, my hands are open, let’s come together and move Osun State forward.”
Source further reported that When asked what he would like to say to Oyetola, Adeleke made a U-turn on reaching out to Oyetola, saying he never called the former governor.
“Well let me correct it, I did not say I put a call to him, what I said is I’m still expecting him to call me so that he can congratulate me, and if he wants to do otherwise and go ahead to the Supreme Court, he has the right to do that,” the governor said.
However, Governor Adeleke said affirmed that he would like to work with the former governor while anticipating his congratulatory message.
