Senator Ademola Adeleke, the governor of Osun State, has admitted that his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola, has yet to congratulate him on the outcome of the appeals court.
Adeleke, who expressed a willingness to collaborate with the former governor, stated that he had not yet heard from Oyetol.
The governor said this when he featured on Arise TV Morning Show on Monday.
“Immediately after the news of the Appeal Court (judgement), I tried to reach out, I called him – the former Governor Oyetola – to let us forge ahead to move Osun forward, but up till now, he has not called me to congratulate me and I’m still hoping that he will do that because we don’t have any other state than Osun State here. So, I’m ready, my hands are open, let’s come together and move Osun State forward,” Adeleke said.
When asked what he would like to say to Oyetola, Adeleke made a U-turn on reaching out to Oyetola, saying he never called the former governor.
“Well let me correct it, I did not say I put a call to him, what I said is I’m still expecting him to call me so that he can congratulate me, and if he wants to do otherwise and go ahead to the Supreme Court, he has the right to do that,” the governor said.
He reiterated that he would like to work with Oyetola.
