Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in the 2018 election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has condemned the action of the party leaders for failing to believe in his political ambition.
Adeleke, who lost his governorship aspiration to the current governor, Gboyega Oyetola after the Supreme Court judgement last week, said that it was never his wish to contest for the election.
“As for the Adeleke family, of which I am one, we will like to remind all the PDP members that Senator Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke had no intention to contest the governorship election in the first place, but was invited and prevailed upon by the party leadership and party elders to contest the governorship election, which he and his family accepted most reluctantly after receiving assurances and promises that were never kept.
“Everything that followed after this is now history. Senator Adeleke should, therefore, be given a break, to take his well-deserved rest and decide what he will do/not do when the time comes.
“Contributions to an election fund should always be considered a grant, to help deepen our democracy and advance the rule of law, which eventually translates into Foreign Direct Investments (FDI), economic growth and job creation.”
