Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has described Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola as a humble man with impeccable character worthy of emulation.
Abubakar, who was in Osun to join other royal fathers at a one-day National Summit on Security organised by the Centre for Black Culture and International Understanding, branded Oyetola as “Mr. Humility.”
The Sultan, who made these remarks on Wednesday at a dinner organised in his honour by Oyetola at the Government House, Osogbo, the State capital added that he never met with him on various occasions he visited the State when the governor was the Chief of Staff under the immediate past administration.
“Oyetola doesn’t do lip service. He did his work diligently. When he won the primary ticket of the All Progressive Congress, I was asking my people, ‘who was that man?’ That shows his level of diligence and humility,” the monarch stated.
Abubakar, therefore, urged other leaders in the country to emulate the governor’s humility and unique leadership style and also implored Osun citizens and residents to continue to support his administration.
“Your Governor is a man of impeccable character, who would not let his people down,” he added.
Earlier, Oyetola had lauded the Sultan for his leadership style, firm stand on religious tolerance and commitment to peace and unity of Nigeria.
He, however, appreciated the Sultan for his support during the legal battle to defend his mandate, describing the monarch as a leader who loved good governance.
