The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, yesterday, congratulated the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just-concluded Osun State governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, on his triumph at the polls.

He admonished him to shun vendetta that is capable of making him lose focus on his plans for the state.

Besides, the monarch urged the governor-elect to “carry everybody on board as a people’s leader who will not patronise the sycophantic behaviours of hypocrites that may want to selfishly misadvise him and pretend to be his best loyalists.”

In a statement by his Director of Media & Public Affairs, Moses Olafare, the traditional ruler described the election result as a confirmation of Adeleke’s grassroots popularity in the state, which he must reward with good governance driven by rule of law, fear of God and selfless service to the people.

The Ooni equally hailed Governor Gboyega Oyetola for his peace-loving character with which he comported himself before, during and after the election.

The monarch also praised the Osun State electorate who went out with their usual ‘Omoluwabi’ decorum and voted for their different preferred candidates without setting the stage on fire.

He also lauded the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for what he described as a job well done.
