BEING ACCEPTANCE SPEECH AS THE CHAIRMAN, INAUGURATION COMMITTEE FOR THE SWEARING-IN OF OSUN STATE GOVERNOR ELECT, SEN. ADEMOLA JACKSON NURUDEEN ADELEKE DATED FRIDAY 21ST OCTOBER 2022.
Let me stand on the existing protocol.
All Glory and Honour to Almighty GOD for the privilege and opportunity to lead this enviable team. On behalf of every member of this committee, I sincerely appreciate the Governor-elect of Osun State, His Excellency, Senator Nurudeen Jackson Ademola Adeleke for the confidence reposed in us to carry out this sensitive assignment, of organising a successful swearing-in for the commencement of government of human face in our dear state.
My appreciation also goes to the uncommon philanthropist, a true father, lover of mankind and a gift to this generation Dr. Deji Adeleke for his selfless and relentless efforts towards an egalitarian society and better life for the people of Osun State.
Our indefatigable Yeye Modupe Adeleke-Sanni and all members of Adeleke dynasty of Ede, who have contributed immensely in making today a reality we, cannot thank you enough for the tireless support to this course.
Also, I register my sincere gratitude to PDP Caretaker team led by Dr. Adekunle Akindele for holding the party together and navigated to the coast of victory at the polls during the governorship election held on 16th July 2022 that gave us reason we are celebrating today, more grace to you all.
While I congratulate every member of the committee, I must quickly acknowledge the fact that the grace of GOD through which this recognition has been obtained, must not be taken for or with levity hand in the delivery of the best and quality presentations that is expected of us.
For me, the Chairmanship of this epoch-making team is never a function of being the best of all or most qualified, it is however, simply a call to serve. So I implore every member of this committee and sub-committees to see this great task from that direction. It is neither an opportunity for egoism, but an avenue to contribute ones quota to make things better, acceptable, laudable and glorious.
It is on that premise that I applaud the dexterity and integrity of all party leaders and members, who worked assiduously to be at where we are at this point. Your loyalty and dugged commitment can not be taken with levity hand.
It is a season of continued joy. We therefore need to congratulate one another and swing into action immediately to deliver the best ,on the assignment given us. Together, we shall bring into the fore, a fantastic outing to usher in the people’s government under the able leadership of “Imole”, the Governor-elect, Senator Adeleke Ademola Nurudeen, come November 27th, by GOD’s grace.
I thank you all.
