President Muhammadu Buhari hosted Gov. Ademola Adeleke of Osun, who was at the State House to on a courtesy visit to express his gratitude.

Fidel Info reports that the governor, who was elected on the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) platform, stated that he had grown to appreciate the President for ensuring an impartial election process in July of last year.

He said: “I had waited patiently for this appointment, and was praying fervently for it to happen. It’s a dream come true for me to see you, and have a handshake.”

“I am a beneficiary of the new Electoral Law you signed, as it paved the way for free and fair elections, ruling out ballot box snatching and stuffing.”

“The security agencies followed your instruction to be fair and firm, and I am so proud of you. You are a true father, regardless of political party differences.”

Given that the development was already receiving praise both domestically and internationally, the governor believed that free and fair elections would be one of President Buhari’s greatest legacies to the nation.

He listed the advancement of agriculture, education, and investment as his top priorities for the State.

Adeleke made several proposals, including funding for infrastructure improvement, support for a projected new economic city and free trade zone, tax credits, and other Federal facilities in Osun.

The governor praised President Buhari for giving his approval to the new Electoral Act, saying that it paved the way for free and fair elections to take place in the nation. The governor later spoke with State House reporters.

Adeleke believed that the new electoral law’s adoption contributed to his election as governor of Osun. He was at the State House for the first time since taking office in November of last year.

He claims that the adoption of the new Electoral Act has altered how the world views Nigeria.

He said: “I am happy to tell you that I just saw our President, looking so well, looking so good and I’m happy about that.

”Since my election, I feel like I should come and say hello to Mr President and thank him for signing that Electoral Act because I benefited from it.”

“That paved way for free and fair elections and the international community is applauding Nigeria that Nigeria is set for democracy.”

”So that is why I’m here today; to see him, thank him and wish him well in his remaining time in office.”

He said Osun was expecting support from the federal government, following his visit to the seat of power.

“We discussed nothing much, that’s the main reason. We just greeted some of the other things I already submitted and I will see the Chief of Staff for us to discuss on the way forward for the federal government to assist Osun State,”  he added.
