      2. So he should just leave those already filled up Perm sec while his foot soldiers who fought for him are still available to fill those post?
        Even, you won’t do such if given same opportunity as Adeleke.

      3. But from opposition Party. Leaving them will be at his own detriment. No opposition will see you succeed where you succeeded their boss. It is called, PARTY LOYALIST.

  12. Am so he happy for you sir [ New Governor ] Mr Adeleke. May Almighty Allah be with you to clean up all dirty things in Osun State sir. Please cancel every unnecessary appointments that may waste all our money in Osun State.

  13. Must the outgoing governor appoint new commissioners at the eleventh hour of his tenure? i think that’s a cogent issue to ponder without sentiments.

  14. Congratulation my dancing senator to Dancing Governor, God will grant you Wisdom to lead Osun to promise land.

  15. I’m not from Osun state I’m from Kogi state but today I’m very happy because you’re now the governor of Osun state, if God say yes who are we to say know I remember in 2018 you won Osun state gubernatorial election but your mandate was stolen thank God, God as restored it for you in this year.

  16. This is a good move. A year or few months to go for governors in Nigeria, they would employ teachers, civil servants and appoint Perm secs just to create problem for the incoming governor. Eg kogi is employing over 500 teachers now. My question is, why didn’t they employ them immediately they assumed office instead of at the point of leaving office? Congratulations! Just do the right thing. Bring back the state to her full agricultural stand. May God see you through sir.

  17. Elder where did you want state government to get money to pay for the appointment? It is share wickedness from that ex-governor to make such appointment in hours before living office, this is part of his bad Belle character that we see before voting him out, why can’t he appoint them in the beginning of his tennor if can he cope with state pocket to pay them, so that your advice void.

  18. I congratulate you.
    I earnestly want you to show to all what good governance is.. Please do not cut short people expectation of you … All eyes on you.

  19. You have started on a good note, how can a governor after spending a lot of money challenging victory of opposition just because he found it difficult to simply accept defeat gi ahead and appoint people into offices days before handing over, was he sleeping before?
    Nigerian leaders be responsible for once, it is no a do or die affair na.

  20. Why must d out going gov. Suddenly appoint those perm sec. few days to his leaving d offc? Has those people not been osun state indingines since his years as gov? He just want people to hate d in coming gov. K
    knowing fully well dat he will reverse d appointment n all d ureasonable things dat he did recently after loosing d election. Like d local govt election that he spent 4years in offc without conducting, d budget he signs into law n d perm sec appointment! What is wrong is wrong!

  21. Adeleke is starting on the wrong footing by sacking 3 Obas and the pem sec .He should apply wisdom wich I think he should have.

  22. I’m quite sure that this decision is for the good of Osun State. Please make a mark of good governance.
    God bless Osun
    God bless Nigeria
