State of Osun PRESS RELEASE Osun Remembers Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke One Year After The government and the people of Osun today remember one of its illustrious sons and indeed the first executive governor of the state, Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke who passed on to the great beyond suddenly on 23rd of April, 2017. As a people and government, the loss of Adeleke was sour grape in the mouth as it denied all, the good naturalness well known about him by all and sundry. A flamboyant politician with great kindness for the needy, late Adeleke did his best to provide for the masses that he came across during his life time. A grassroots politician of note in his life time, the first civilian governor of the State of Osun was in constant touch with his people till he breathed his last. No wonder his demise brought a deep sense of loss to all, even when it is clear that as mortals, we all live at the mercy of God. While praying for Aljanat fridous for him, the government again urged the family, friends and associate of Senator Isiaka Adeleke, the Timi of Edeland, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal and other well-wishers across the world to find solace in the good life and indelible footprints the deceased left behind.
