Former President Olusegun Obasanjo praised Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, for being a "dancing but working governor."
Obasanjo made this commendation at the 16th Harvest Anniversary and Thanksgiving Service in Lagos, saying, "Mr. Governor, they call you a dancer. But you are dancing to praise God. And I heard you are working hard for your people."
Obasanjo continued, "Dancing to praise God is praiseworthy, especially with the reports of good developments happening in Osun State. God, whom you are praising, will shower His blessings on your state and government. I associate with you."
He also encouraged the governor to collaborate with traditional rulers and elders, saying, "I call on His Majesty, the Ooni of Ife, and other royal fathers to support the governor to deliver more. Mr. Governor, continue to work closely with traditional rulers, elders, and stakeholders of your state."
In response, Adeleke expressed his commitment to praise and worship, stating, "I am never ashamed to hold unto God through song and dance." He highlighted his achievements in office, including reforms in the public service, road construction, and free medical surgeries for over 40,000 beneficiaries.
Adeleke concluded by seeking prayers and support, saying, "We are committed to God and the people."
