The Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR), Osun State branch, has charged Governor Ademola Adeleke to ensure that the rule of law prevailed over sentiments during his term in office.
CDHR, in a statement signed by the state chairman, Akinrinade Wahab, urged the governor to ensure that personalities with questionable characters are not appointed to his cabinet.
“We in the CDHR congratulate you for your inauguration as the sixth Executive Governor of Osun State because you have proved beyond reasonable doubt that you are ready for the herculean task ahead of your administration for the next four years.
“We acknowledge the composition of personalities that made up your transitional committee. Our organization placed the Committee under watch for evaluation of their conduct and programs’ approaches to issues, and we shall, in the next two weeks, submit our recommendation to your office.
“The formation of the Special Advisory Council on Youth Affairs, whose duties are to draw up actionable goals on youth empowerment and inclusiveness and development of the youth, shows you are ready to incorporate and build youth capacity into your administration.
“Your Excellency Sir, we would like you to note that we have carefully documented your policy statement on Local Government Administration and Education, which we are waiting to see your administration implement without delay.
“We of the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) advise that you painstakingly view all drawn-up actionable goals, and subject them to criticism before approval will be given. While you should also ensure that personalities with questionable characters are not appointed into your cabinet.”
