First Civilian Osun State Governor, Ishiaka Adeleke Is Dead

The people of Osun State and many Nigerians are currently bereaved over the death of the first civilian governor of Osun State and a three term senator representing Osun West senatorial district, Isiaka Adeleke.


During the Nigerian third republic, Adeleke ran for governor of the newly created Osun State which was carved out from Oyo State. He was a member of SDP the dominant party in the state but he was not initially favored to win. The front runner was a lawyer, Oladipo Oladosu but after a close primary in which Adeleke came second, Adeleke was able to win a runoff.He was then elected the first civilian governor of Osun State in 1992.

Adeleke suffered a heart attack. He died today 23rd April, 2017 (aged 62) at Biket Hospital in Osogbo, the Osun state capital. He "is" the uncle of popular Nigerian musician, Davido. Until his death, he was planning to run for the governorship election in the state in 2018. We learnt Davido is currently in shock over the demise of his uncle.
