It was reported Adeleke’s inauguration took place at the Osogbo city stadium, Osun state.

The Chief Judge of the state, Adepele Ojo, administered the oath.

Adeleke, who contested the governor election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), defeated Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who was seeking re-election.

Adeleke secured 403,371 votes to defeat Oyetola who polled 375,027 votes.

Speaking after his swearing-in, Adeleke said he is “well aware” of the expectations from the residents in the state and that he will be a servant to all.

The governor said his reforms will cut across education, security, healthcare, infrastructure, local government administration, judiciary, and public service, adding that his administration will be labour friendly.

“I am well aware of the fact that my responsibility as governor and chief security entails meeting the expectation of our people,” he said.

Those who attended the inauguration included Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP; Iyorchia Ayu, PDP national chairman; Bukola Saraki, former senate president, as well as former governors and party chieftains.

A few hours after he was sworn in, Adeleke announced three appointments.

The appointment was made known in a statement released by his media aide Olawale Rasheed.

He appointed a former chairman of the Osogbo Local Government Council, Kassim Akinleye, as the Chief of Staff.

He also approved the appointment of Teslim Igbalaye as Secretary to the State Government while Olawale Rasheed is Chief Press Secretary.

The appointments, according to the governor, take immediate effect.
