The circular further said the governor presented the issue of wearing Adire during the last State Executive Council meeting and it was unanimous approved and adopted.


The circular quoted Adeleke as saying that Adire, actually had its source from Osun, noting that the new decision will reassert the traditional claim of Osun to the adire genre.

The governor recalled his meeting with the Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun, where the duo resolved to host annual Adire Day celebration.

Adeleke further announced his administration’s plan to create mini-industrial clusters to support the Adire industry and other craft sub-sectors in the state.

“Our administration is working on the creation of SME industrial clusters.

“The Adire and other craft sub-sectors will be supported to grow and flourish.

“By this decision, we are determined to rebuild the Adire industry, that is under threat from foreign mass producers.


“We are poised to breathe life into our culture with Osun as the cradle of the Yoruba nation,” he said.

Adeleke’s predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola, had on July 11, 2021 directed all civil servants to wear Adire every Thursday to boost the fabric industry. (NAN)
