The Senate Deputy Minority Leader, Senator ‘Lere Oyewumi has described the Osun State Governor, Senator Nurudeen Jackson Ademola Adeleke as the state’s best man for the forthcoming 2026 gubernatorial election in the state.

The Ikire born politician who is representing Osun West Senatorial District at the upper chamber made this declaration while speaking on a television programme.

He said, Governor Adeleke has done well in office and proud of him saying he has transformed the entire state adding that, since nobody changes a winning horse, the man Governor Adeleke remains the best candidate for the job again.

Senator Oyewumi who debunked the insinuation making the round that he was working towards throwing his hat in the ring for the 2026 Osun Governorship race against the current Governor Adeleke, said there was no iota of truth in the rumour as it was a baseless information.

According to Senator Oyewumi, “you see, you don’t change a winning team, we are one family under one umbrella, Governor Adeleke remain our Osun Governor as he is performing excellently and wonderfully well as we can all see, I align with him completely as he is my leader and I give him full supports while I will never contest Governorship election with him, I don’t even have it in plan.

“The people that are behind such a rumour are the enemies of progress saying what they like. Listen please, why will I be working against the people’s governor who is working assiduously towards the betterment and upliftment of the entire citizens of the state? It’s not done my friend.

“Governor Adeleke is workers and pensioners friendly as he doesn’t take their issues with levity hand, he gives priority to them by paying their salary and pension whenever it is due for payment while Mr Governor is also paying palliative to both groups.

“His efforts in promoting the artisans, aged, people with special need, widows, rural women, market men and women, farmers, youths among others cannot be over emphasised while there are many empowerment programmes to alleviate the people’s suffering.

“So what will push someone like me to call for removal of Governor Adeleke in office? Am not the type of person o and so far so good, I am contented”.
