Knocks For Gov. Adeleke For Unveiling Incomplete Project In Osogbo

OSOGBO – The commissioning of uncompleted project opposite Osun secretariat, Abere, by Governor Ademola Adeleke has continued to generate reactions from the people of the state.

Adeleke had on Tuesday, inaugurated statues of past Osun state Governors and revealed the Isiaka Adetunji Memorial Circle, Park, and Garden in tribute to his elder brother, the state’s first Executive governor..

Adeleke who used the commissioning of the project to mark the posthumous birthday of his elder brother, described him as passionate lover of good governance and a patriot with selfless leadership attributes.

During the commissioning, Adeleke was joined by the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s wife, who serves as the Commissioner for Federal Affairs, and the Timi of Ede, His Royal Majesty, Oba Muniru Adesola Lawal.

The governor independently inaugurated the statue and garden in the presence of key officials, including the Deputy Governor, Prince Kola Adewusi; the Secretary to the State Government, Hon Teslim Igbalaye; the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Hon Kazeem Akinleye; and members of the State Executive Council.

However, engineers and site workers have resumed work to finish the project.

The developers have cordoned off the area while construction progresses.

The governor’s unveiling of uncompleted projects has sparked criticism, as Civil Society groups condemned him, saying that his government thrives on misinformation and propaganda.

Speaking on the project, the Convener of Centre for Responsive Governance, Comrade Ayo Ologun, said: “Adeleke is running the affairs like a family affair, he built the statue of his elder brother very big and gigantic while others statues of other governors are very small.

“When the project was commissioned was the birthday date of his elder brother so the project was not completed. What is the hurry about? He chose to commission an uncompleted project to honour the posthumous birthday of his brother. There is no urgency in commissioning the project that day. It is not right, the enterprise of governance in Osun is not family affairs.”

Similarly, the All Progressive Congress through its chairman, Tajudeen Lawal said: “We are not surprised that he commissioned an uncompleted project, the administration is built on lies and deceit. It only appears to those outside the state that he is doing something spectacular.”
