Sen. Ademola Adeleke, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Osun, has promised to provide a private jet and helicopters to the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, if he is elected governor of the state.
He stated that the provision will make it easier for the king to travel from one location to another, both within and outside the country.
This was revealed in a statement issued by Comrade Moses Olafare, Ooni’s Director of Media and Public Affairs, who stated that Adeleke revealed this during a visit to Oba Ogunwusi at his palace on Wednesday evening.
Adeleke, who bemoaned the poor state of roads and other amenities in Ile Ife, described Ooni as a worthy father, assuring that if he is given the chance to govern the state, the fortunes of the ancient city would turn around.
“I have always cherished the great throne of Oduduwa here in Ife and the personality of the Ooni; I will never disrespect it, and I will not allow anyone to despise it.”
“By God’s grace, I will make arrangements for a private jet to facilitate all of Ooni’s domestic and international travel.” I’m not going to make a big deal about it, but that’s what I’m going to do.
“With the plan to build the Osun airport, Baba (The Ooni) would be picked up from the palace and flown to the nearest airport to board an aeroplane to anywhere,” Adeleke was quoted as saying.
Adeleke stated on Ile Ife, “I am moved to tears when I see the poor state of our roads and others; this will be changed next year.” The current government has destroyed the local government system, making the ostensibly closest tier of government very far from the people.”
Speaking, Ooni urged politicians and their supporters to maintain peace before, during, and after the upcoming governorship election in Osun State.
“Do not put undue pressure on your leaders to keep them from making empty promises.” Be diligent at all times, and everything will be fine for you all.
“You fans, admirers, and followers hear and say a lot to influence your leaders’ minds.” “I want to urge you to act responsibly because violence does not pay,” Oba Ogunwusi said.
