Ahead of tomorrow’s supplementary voting in seven polling units across four local governments in the inconclusive Osun State governorship election, the PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has appreciated his opponents in other political parties for their willingness to team up with him to defeat the APC.
He commended them for considering the APC and its candidate as a common enemy of progress in the state and their resolve to put an end to APC administration in the state.
Adeleke also expressed his willingness for cooperation and partnership with all progressive political forces to consolidate on the victory he recorded last Saturday.
Having actually spoken with many political leaders and candidates ahead of the last poll, he described as false the allegation that he tagged Senator Iyiola Omisore as a political enemy.
In a statement on Tuesday by Olawale Rasheed, Director Media and Publicity of his campaign, Adeleke said it was not true that that the Adeleke family has rejected possibility of working with Senator Iyiola Omisore.
He said, “It is a concocted lie by rejected APC and their satellite politicians.
“Senator Ademola Adeleke has openly expressed his willingness for cooperation and partnership with all progressive political forces to consolidate on the victory of last Saturday.
Adeleke had actually spoke with many political leaders and candidates in the last poll. It was therefore false to allege opposition to the involvement of Senator Omisore in the push for victory tommorow.
“We repeat categorically that neither Senator Adeleke nor Mrs Dupe Adeleke-Sani ever told Senate President Bukola Saraki of Adeleke’s opposition to Senator Omisore.
If anything, the family was full of praise for Dr Saraki, Senator Omisore ,Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola,nAlhaji Moshood Adeoti and other leaders who have rallied round Senator Adeleke to reclaim the stolen mandate.
“We call on the public and affected political leaders to ignore the report. All hands are on deck for victory and no amount of fake news will stop Osun people from completing the liberation and redemption movement”, said Adeleke.
