by Echezona obinna

Ademola Adeleke, the governor of Osun State, praised President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.) on Friday for approving the Electoral Act (2022).
He said that the legislation, which he claimed established free and fair elections, helped him win the July 16 governorship election in 2022.

This was said by Adeleke when he disclosed the main points of his 11:00 am meeting with the President at the State House in Abuja.

Since the President’s inauguration in November 2022, Adeleke and the President have not previously interacted.
“Since my election, I felt like I should come and say hello to Mr. President and thank him for signing that Electoral Act because I profited from it,” he stated when addressing the media.

“That paved way for free and fair elections and the international community is applauding Nigeria, that Nigeria is set for democracy.

“So that is why I’m here today; to see him, thank him and wish him well in his remaining time in office.”
Adeleke revealed that he would engage with the President’s Chief of Staff to design a proper framework for collaboration between the Osun State Government and the Federal Government.

“I will see the Chief of Staff for us to discuss on the way forward for the Federal Government to assist Osun State,” he said.

ANAEDOONLINE.NG reports that Buhari signed into law the Electoral Act Amendment Bill 2022 on February 25, 2022.
The President affirmed that the legislation contains salient provisions that could positively revolutionise elections in Nigeria through new technological innovations.
“These innovations would guarantee the constitutional rights of citizens to vote and to do so effectively.

“The Bill would also improve and engender clarity, effectiveness and transparency of the election process, as well as reduce to the barest minimum incidences of acrimony arising from dissatisfied candidates and political parties,” Buhari said.

Five months later, Adeleke, the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate secured 403,371 votes to defeat the immediate past governor, Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress who garnered 375,027 votes.
