Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has promised to work closely with the state's House of Assembly after a rather rocky start to his reign as governor.

Adeleke gave the assurance when he met with the Speaker of the House, Timothy Owoeye, in his county home at Ede.

The governor stressed the need to get the support of the legislature in order to deliver on the five-point agenda.

Adeleke, who took controversial decisions after his inauguration, described the legislature as a critical arm of government.

He noted that lawmakers play an important role in the efforts to deliver on good governance, accountability and leadership.

Owoeye assured Adeleke of the readiness of the legislature to support his administration to deliver on its promises.

Adeleke was on Sunday sworn-in alongside his Deputy, Kola Adewusi.
