Governor Adeleke reads out insurrection law to cabinet members

Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun read out the Insurrection Act to his cabinet members during a service.

Mr. Adeleke also established a monitoring and evaluation unit to assess the performance of ministers on a quarterly basis.

A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Kolapo Alimi, in Osogbo on Wednesday, said the governor made the remarks during his maiden address to the state executive committee.

Mr. Adeleke also directed members of parliament to “redouble their efforts in the delivery of services to the people.

“It should be noted in particular that 2024 is a critical year for the current government. As we enter December, we will enter the interim period. We must move quickly with the implementation of sectoral plans.

“You all have to work hard in the various ministries to achieve the goals set. To prepare quarterly reports on the ministries and evaluate the performance of the ministers, I am responsible for careful monitoring. We would like to inform you that we have launched an evaluation team.

“Even if you didn't sign a performance bond when you took over, you will be judged on your service delivery going forward.

“I will not hesitate to dismiss appointees who fail to produce results based on the monitoring and evaluation report,” he said.

Mr. Adeleke urged ministers to focus on critical national issues rather than lobbying on issues of personal interest.

The council also approved the appointment of six traditional rulers of the state. The statement said all appointments are effective immediately.

The council also approved the elevation of 11 more traditional rulers in Osun State to the status of Section 25 of the Osun State Act 2002, Part II (Recognition) of the Chieftaincy Act.
