Governance easy when leaders are honest with conscience – Obasanjo

…Commissions presidential lodge alongside Adeleke, Oyinlola in Osun


Former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has posited that governance is easy when leaders are honest with their conscience.


Obasanjo stated while commissioning presidential lodge inside Osun state Government House, Oke-Fia, Osogbo alongside Governor Ademola Adeleke and former governor, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola yesterday.

He said: “With my experience, Nigeria is a complex country, but Nigeria is not a difficult country to rule, maybe one can also say the same that Osun state is a complex state, but Osun State is not a difficult state to rule.

“You have to be honest with your conscience, with the people and with your God. You have to be a man of character and attributes that everybody will see that Ademola Adeleke, when he sees opportunity to dance, he would dance but is a man of integrity, honesty and hardwork, it is very important! When light comes, darkness vanishes.”

The former president also declared that Adeleke is his dancing partner any day because he has proven to the world that he is happy and also very hardworking governor.

He advised Adeleke that, “You are working on roads, don’t joke with it because when we make necessary provision for the people to have jobs they will work. Many Yoruba people want to work but what is impeding that is the road to ply. When we provide wherewithal for them, they would work. I will plead with you to continue with that.”

Earlier, Adeleke explained that the VIP lodge was abandoned after the administration of Rauf Aregbesola who left it at 35 percent completion.

“However, work commenced on the project three months ago and now it is completed. This lodge can accommodate 5 dignitaries with their team conveniently at a time.”
