In a rare display of political maturity, Governor Ademola Adeleke directed the three senators of the Peoples Democratic Party from Osun state to support former Governor Gboyega Oyetola during his Senatorial screening.
Making the disclosure on the floor of the Senate was the Deputy Senate Minority Leader, Senator Lere Oyewumi while endorsing the ministerial nominee on behalf of other senators from the state.
Senator Oyewumi told the Senators that at a meeting Thursday night in Abuja, Governor Adeleke directed the senators to rally round Mr Oyetola in the overall interest of Osun State.
Senator Oyewumi said Governor Adeleke sees Oyetola’s nomination as an opportunity to expand prospects and opportunities for development of Osun State.
” We endorse Mr Oyetola’s nomination in line with our Governor’s directive. We wish Mr Oyetola well. We look forward to working together for the good people of Osun state.
Earlier, another PDP Senator , Francis Fadahunsi had read an endorsement speech for Oyetola.
The Senate President who was impressed by the position of Osun PDP senators commended Governor Adeleke and the Senators, describing what just happened as ” a demonstration of strong political maturity that should be emulated by all”
