The outgoing Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, remains confident of eventual return as Senator Ademola Adeleke takes over on Sunday (today) as the governor of the state, IgbereTV reports

Adeleke, who is the governor-elect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would be inaugurated in Osogbo City Stadium.

Those expected at the inauguration include the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the national chairman of the party, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, and other PDP governors.
