‘Signal of rebirth’ — Adeleke signs bill adopting new logo for Osun

Ademola Adeleke, governor of Osun, has assented to a bill adopting a new logo for the state. 

In March, Adeleke had written to the Osun assembly requesting approval for the change of the state’s logo.

Subsequently, the house of assembly granted Adeleke’s request, replacing the logo initiated by the Rauf Aregbesola administration in 2011, with a new one.

In a statement on Wednesday, Olawale Rasheed, the governor’s spokesperson, said Adeleke described the new logo as “a signal of rebirth” for the state.

“The new logo is also an educational resource material for our younger generation as it contains symbols of our landmarks, strengths, resources and history,” Adeleke said.

“The logo is also a tool to market the state at home and abroad.

“It is my honour and privilege to introduce the new logo as the symbol of our state.

“This announcement will herald a new life of prosperity, abundance and sustainability for our people and admirers.”

On his part, Adewale Egbedun, speaker of the Osun assembly, said the new logo represents the heritage of the people of the state.

In July 2023, the Osun assembly repealed the law validating the public usage of the state’s anthem, crest and flag.

The law, Osun State Anthem, Crest and Flag Law 2012, was instituted during the administration of Aregbesola.
