Osun state chapter of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has described the new logo adopted by Governor Ademola Adeleke for the state as a national embarrassment, saying that the design fell short of standard.

In a statement signed by the party’s chairman, Dr. Tosin Odeyemi, the party wondered if Governor Adeleke saw the new logo before assenting to its bill.

Dr Odeyemi said “the new logo is an embarrassment to us in Osun. Who did they give the contract to? Didn’t Governor Adeleke see it before assenting to the bill?

“With an array of technologically inclined youths we have in Osun State that can come up with good designs, how could a state government unveil such a poorly designed logo?

“Osun has become a laughing stock on different social media since the unveiling of the design.

‘What happened to the original logo being used since the creation of Osun state? We all spoke against it when the administration of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola designed a new logo for the state and abandoned the one in use before he came into office as Governor. The one we have now is however worse compared to the one given the state by Aregbesola.

“For those that have ears in this government, a drastic step needs to be taken. The logo should be withdrawn from public to safe Osun State from this unnecessary bashing,” he added.
