Adeleke Moves Into Government House 16 Months After Swearing-in

Written by on March 18, 2024

About one year and four months after taking over rein of the state, Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has moved into the Okefia Government House, Osogbo, the official residence of the governor.

Adeleke was sworn in on Sunday, November 27, 2022, and rather than moving into the Government House to live like his predecessors, he chose to return to his private house in Ede, a neigbouring town to Osogbo.

Despite criticisms by the opposition All Progressives Congress, Adeleke remained in his private house and sometimes conducted the business of the state from there.

He explained that the Government House was under renovation.

However, a statement yesterday by his spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, said the renovation had been completed and Adeleke had finally moved in.

Rasheed explained that the rehabilitation work covered the main house, the completion of an abandoned multi-bedroom guest house, remodeling of many of the structures, and refixing of many derelict facilities.

Speaking at the unveiling of the renovated Government House, Adeleke said his administration was committed to upgrading state assets irrespective of whether such programmes were inherited or commenced by him.
