“Let me assure our elders, leaders and supporters across Ijesha land that I am more than prepared for this upcoming contest. My competency is a function of training and experience. I have learnt a lot from business, schooling and political participation.

“The totality of my experience prepares me for state leadership. Our team will rescue Osun from the mess APC has plunged it into. Our blueprint will address aspirations of the people and take the state to a new height”, Adeleke said.
