Don’t let your dancing skills affect good governance, Obasanjo tells Adeleke

The Nigeria’s Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has advised Osun State Governor Prince Ademola Adeleke not to allow his dancing skills affect his performance in governance, describing him as his (Obasanjo) dancing partner

Penpushing reports that Obasanjo gave the advice and observation at the inauguration of a Very Important Personality (VIP) lodge in Osun Government House on Sunday in Osogbo, the state capital, stressing that Adeleke should focus on governing the state and do so with honesty and integrity.

‘You remember that at one time I phoned you; I told you I didn’t have problems with your dancing. I said, ‘Don’t leave dancing, but as you are dancing, ensure you are working. Some people once despised you as a dancer, but I said only happy people dance; you are my dancing partner’, Obasanjo said.

“You have to be honest with your conscience, with the people and with your God. You have to be a man of character. Let people say ‘when he sees an opportunity to dance, he will dance, but he is a man of integrity; he is honest and works hard. It is very important. Anywhere we meet, we would dance and rejoice; if anybody wants to abuse us, they should go ahead’, he added.

Penpushing further reports that the former President, however, commended Adeleke on his developmental programmes in Osun. State, noting that what he (Obasanjo) heard and saw in the state was a testimony of his good work

‘What he heard and saw since his arrival in the state was a testimony to the good work the governor was doing. You are working on roads; don’t joke with it because when we make necessary provisions for the people to have jobs, the state will work’, he stated.

‘Many Yoruba people want to work, but what is impeding that is the road to ply. When we provide the wherewithal for them, they would work. I will plead with you to continue with that. You said government is a continuum, and all the abandoned projects are being completed. God will make it good for you’, Obasanjo added.

Penpushing also reports that the Governor in his remarks assured that his administration would continue to ensure that laudable projects were completed for the common use of the people, explaining that the All Progressives Congress (APC) government started the lodge, and he completed it because he believed public infrastructure should not be politicised.

‘We assure all lovers of good governance that our administration is passionate about delivering on quality pro-people policies for the benefit of all residents of the state’, Adeleke popularly called the dancing governor said.
