Dethroned Monarchs: "Adeleke's Executive Orders Obnoxious", Osun APC blows hot

The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the sacking of three newly enthroned traditional rulers in the State by the State Governor, Ademola Adeleke.

The party, speaking through the state Deputy Chairman, Taju Lawal in a statement issued by Party's State Media Director, Kola Olabisi, the APC described as obnoxious series of the executive orders issued by the newly inaugurated Governor within 24 hours of assuming office.

It will be recalled that Governor Adeleke had, shortly after his inauguration, sacked 12,000 workers and ordered the dethronement of three monarchs.

The Governor also nullified the appointment of 30 Permanent Secretaries and suspended the chairman and members of Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC).

The affected monarchs include Akinrun of Ikinrun Oba Yinusa Akadiri; Aree of Ire Oba Ademola Oluponle and Owa of Igbajo, Oba Gboyega Famodun. He had equally ordered the monarch to vacate the palace, asking security operatives to take over.

The APC challenged Governor Adeleke's orders, describing it as excessive and a flagrant disregard for extant laws of the state.

In his words: "Osun State is not an enterprise owned by the Adeleke family where the governor can just wake up and dishing out executive orders which could not be for any other reason but vindictiveness.

"Governor Adeleke has stepped on the tail of a tiger and he must be ready to face the consequences as the nation and all its component  states are ruled by the constitution. 

"Another laughable executive misconduct of Governor Adeleke was his order that the three newly-enthroned monarchs in the state who have been duly given their staff of offices should step aside with an order to the police to lock the palace.

"Governor Adeleke  and  his advisers should know that it's only a court of law that can issue such an order asking any duly-enthroned monarch to step aside from his palace.

"With the unfolding development, Governor Adeleke has willingly thrown a stone at the colony of bees and he should be ready to be stung".

"If it's not a vengeance mission against some monarchs, why was it that the obnoxious executive order was selectively served as it was not the only three Obas who were singled out who were enthroned within the period in question?", the statement read in part.
