The Osun state house of assembly says the state will continue to be referred to as the ‘state of Osun’ as against the ‘Osun state’. The development was announced on Monday in a statement by Kunle Akande, the house committee chairman on media and publicity.

On Sunday, while making his inauguration speech, Ademola Adeleke, the Osun governor, ordered an immediate reversal to ‘Osun state’ instead of ‘the state of Osun’, which was adopted during the Rauf Aregbesola administration.

“The usage of the state anthem, crest and flag is an enactment of the law and as such, its usage is a matter of law and not choice,” the statement reads.

“The enactment ‘state of Osun anthem, crest and flag law, 2012’ assented to on the 18th of December, 2012 contained in Schedule I, II, III, IV and V, which carefully details every component of this law is not in ambiguity.

“Schedule I is the State Anthem, Schedule II has to do with the State Crest, and Schedule III is the symbolic significance of elements in the Flag.

“Lastly, while we are aware of a court judgment in effect recognizing “Osun State”, the Assembly, pending the determination and exhaustion of all legal means would not be drawn into this matter.

“However, the State shall and will continue to be described as the state of the virtuous (Ipinle Omoluabi).”

The state government, under the administration of Rauf Aregbesola, had announced the renaming of Osun state as the “state of Osun” in 2011.

However, an Osun state high court sitting in Ilesa declared that the renaming is illegal and therefore, null and void.
