What Governor Adeleke's greeting style means in Yorubaland

The act by the governor is an ancient tradition in Yoruba land that is mandatory and demands that every male member of the Yoruba race greets their elders lying flat in front of them.

It is mainly regarded as a sign of respect and humility for one's elder, not minding the age gap, status or tribe.

Governor Ademola was born on May 13 1960, and is 62, while former governor Aregbesola was born on May 25 1957, and he's 65 years old.

Being the governor of the host state, the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) invited Adeleke as a guest to the commissioning of the Ilesa Passport Production Centre and Passport Front at Ilesa East Local Government Area of the state.

It was gathered that the governor arrived at the venue 30 minutes past noon, moments after his deputy Kola Adewusi arrived.

On arrival at the venue, Adeleke sighted ex-governor Aregbesola and immediately prostrated to greet him as the latter helped him up to get a warm hug.

Jubilation erupts as Appeal Court gives final verdict on Oyetola vs Adeleke suit

Recently, an appeal court in Abuja has set aside the ruling of the Osun state governorship election petition tribunal that nullified the election of Governor Ademola Adeleke.

In a majority judgment, the tribunal ruled that Adeleke did not win the election and declared that Gboyega Oyetola of the APC was the winner of the poll.

However, Adeleke was displeased with the outcome of the tribunal and challenged the judgment at the court of appeal, which upheld his victory.

“Oyetola has not congratulated me,” Adeleke reveals as he speaks on ex-gov’s move to Supreme Court

Meanwhile, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the governor of Osun state, has faulted his predecessor, for failing to congratulate him on his latest court victory.

According to Adeleke, he tried to reach out to the former governor, but his efforts proved abortive after the appeal court's judgement.

The governor, however, maintained that he was unbothered if Oyetola heads to Supreme Court, noting that he has a right to do so.
