The leadership of the Traditional Religious Worshippers Association in Osun State has said necessary rites to further make the reign of the state governor, Ademola Adeleke, to be more peaceful would be done, assuring the state helmsman of their support.
This was contained in a congratulatory message of the religious group to Adeleke on his victory at the Supreme Court, which affirmed his election at the July 16, 2022 governorship poll, signed by its president, Oluseyi Atanda, obtained in Osogbo on Wednesday.
The traditionalists then urged Adeleke to ensure a harmonious relationship among people of diverse faiths living in the state, adding that the governor must also see to the welfare of members of the group by supporting their efforts towards keeping the state safe through their different spiritual interventions.
The group also advised the governor not to hesitate to discontinue every wrong policy of his predecessors, and to continue with good policies of those before him for the state to rise further in the comity of states in the country.
The statement read, “We congratulate our governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, on his victory at the Supreme Court which affirmed his election. God has made him governor and we will continue to work hard appeasing our ancestors for him to have a peaceful reign as the leader of the state.
“We are a non-partisan religious group and we assure Governor Adeleke of our continued support. Whenever he feels a policy he inherited or initiated is not working, he should discontinue it, but the working policies of those before him in office, he should continue with them in the interest of the state.
“All the necessary rites to make the land to be more peaceful during the reign of our amiable governor will be done and we believe he will also extend hands of fellowship to us and avail us opportunity to relate with his administration. We assure him of our total support.”
