President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday promised to consider the requests for assistance made by the new Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, who was at State House on a ‘thank you’ visit.

This was contained in a release signed by special adviser to the President, Femi Adesina and obtained by AMILOADED Correspondent.

The Governor, elected on platform of the People’s Democratic Party, said he had come to appreciate the President for providing a level playing field in the election that held in July last year.

Said the Governor:

“I had waited patiently for this appointment, and was praying fervently for it to happen. It’s a dream come true for me to see you, and have a handshake.

“I am a beneficiary of the new Electoral Law you signed, as it paved the way for free and fair elections, ruling out ballot box snatching and stuffing.

“The security agencies followed your instruction to be fair and firm, and I am so proud of you. You are a true father, regardless of political party differences.”
