Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has been felicitated on his installation as the Asiwaju of Edeland.

The felicitation was by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors' Forum, PDP-GF.

In a statement signed on Monday by the Director General, PDP Governors’ Forum, Dr Emmanuel Agbo, the forum expressed delight at the recognition bestowed upon Governor Adeleke by His Royal Majesty, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal, the Timi of Edeland.

Led by the Governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, the forum said that the conferment of the Asiwaju title is a testament to Governor Adeleke’s outstanding contributions and leadership qualities.

The statement read, “The conferment of the Asiwaju title, the highest traditional honour reserved for individuals of exceptional initiative within the community, is a testament to Governor Adeleke’s outstanding contributions and leadership qualities.


“This joyous occasion is further enhanced as it coincides with His Excellency’s 64th birthday anniversary celebration, underscoring the enduring goodwill and esteem accorded to him by the Ede Traditional Council, which unanimously approved the conferment of this revered title.

“The Forum also acknowledges the historical significance of this honour, previously bestowed upon the late Asiwaju Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke, the elder brother of Governor Adeleke, who served as a former Governor and the inaugural democratically elected Chief Executive of Osun State.”

The forum expressed delight at Governor Adeleke for his, “visionary leadership renowned for his transformative initiatives that have positively impacted both the landscape of Osun State and the lives of its citizens through various impactful projects and programs.”

“In sincere appreciation, the Forum commends the esteemed heritage and wisdom of the Ede community, particularly under the leadership of Kabiyesi Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal.

“The Forum extends its best wishes to Governor Adeleke, his family, and the people of Osun State, both at home and abroad, anticipating a future marked by unity, peace, and progress.”
