The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in last Saturday “inconclusive” gubernatorial election in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has expressed his willingness to work with all political forces in the state to win the Thursday rerun election.
The Director of Media and Publicity for Ademola Adeleke Campaign Organisation, Olawale Rasheed, in a press statement made available to Daily Trust debunked the insinuation that Adeleke rejected working with Omisore.
According to the statement, “Our attention has been drawn to a fake news currently trending alleging that the Adeleke family has rejected the possibility of working with Senator Iyiola Omisore. It is a cooked 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.
“Senator Adeleke had actually spoken with many political leaders and candidates in the last poll. It was therefore false to allege opposition to the involvement of Senator Iyiola Omisore in the push for the final victory.
“We repeat categorically that neither Senator Adeleke nor Mrs Dupe Adeleke-Sani ever told Senate President, Senator 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, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti and other leaders who have rallied round Senator Adeleke to claim the mandate of the people.”
“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.
