In response to the attempted incursion by individuals dressed in military attire at the Oyo State Government Secretariat in Agodi, Ibadan, Adeleke has directed the reinforcement of security personnel around key government structures in Osun State. He specifically instructed his Special Adviser on Security Matters, Samuel Ojo, to mobilize joint security teams to safeguard government installations, including the State Government Secretariat, the Government House, and other vital premises such as the headquarters of the Osun State Broadcasting Corporation.

Adeleke emphasized the importance of upholding the unity of Nigeria while advocating for ongoing constitutional reforms to establish a more robust federal system.

He also pledged support for President Tinubu’s efforts in driving federal reform initiatives, underscoring the collective responsibility to assist in achieving national objectives.
