The directives which, according to Adeleke, "will be backed up with appropriate executive orders" are as follows:

Freezing of all Osun state accounts

The Adeleke-led administration has frozen all the state's accounts in banks till further notice.

Among other things, this will put a hold on the state's treasury such that there will no inflow and outflow of money.

This will also afford the government time to carry out a thorough-going audit of the treasury to detect any possible criminal activity by the immediate-past administration.

Recovery of government assets by new panel

The new government has ordered the establishment of a panel that will carry out an inventory of the state's assets.

This panel is also charged with the responsibility of recovering the government's assets.

Review of all appointments

Added to this, the Adeleke-led government will also review all appointments and major decisions taken by the Adegboyega Oyetola administration.

The order read:

“An immediate establishment of a panel to review all appointments and major decisions of the immediate past administration taken after July 17, 2022."

Reversal of state's name

Lastly, the new government has also ordered an immediate reversal of the state's name from the State of Osun to Osun State.

According to Adeleke, the change should be reflected in all the state's insignia, correspondences, and signages.

He said:

“An immediate reversal to the constitutionally recognised name of our state, ‘Osun State’. All government insignia, correspondences, and signages should henceforth reflect Osun State rather than State of Osun which is unknown to the Nigerian constitution.”

Supreme Court affirms Davido’s uncle, Adeleke as authentic PDP candidate

The Supreme Court on Thursday, September, 29 ruled in favour of the Osun state governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke in a suit seeking his ouster as the authentic gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),

The suit seeking his removal was filed by his bitter rival, Prince Dotun Babayemi who argued that the primary election that produced Senator Adeleke was fraudulent.

Babayemi further argued that his election was conducted by the original delegates of the party.
