Adeleke Family Alleges Betrayal, Rejects 2022 Ticket – Punch – 9jaflaver

Deji Adeleke, elder brother to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic
Party in the September 22, 2018 governorship poll in Osun State,
Ademola Adeleke, on Thursday, said many promises made by the PDP before
the family accepted the party’s governorship ticket were not kept.

Adeleke, in a statement he signed and obtained in Osogbo on Thursday,
declared that his younger brother had no intention to contest the
governorship election in the first place.

He, however, added
that Senator Ademola Adeleke, was prevailed on by the PDP leadership
and elders before the family accepted “most reluctantly after receiving
assurances and promises that were never kept.”

He said the younger Adeleke should be given a break to take a rest and decide what he would do or not do when the time comes.

He expressed gratitude to those who are concerned about the huge
resources committed to execute his younger brother’s participation in
the PDP primary and general elections and the payment to lawyers during
the litigation period.

Adeleke conselled that money spent on
elections should not be considered an investment that would be recouped
upon assumption of office through corruption and banditry, but should
rather be considered as a grant to help deepen democracy and advance the
rule of law.

The statement read, “I am not a card-carrying
member of any political party but I am a sympathiser/supporter of the
PDP in Osun State. Osun State PDP will be better off and well prepared
for the next general election in the state, if internal democracy is
encouraged and enforced.

“All elective positions, including
the position of governor of the state, should be open to all members of
the party to contest in a transparent primary election. Everyone must be
given a sense of belonging, in order to grow the party in Osun State.

“The PDP members that are trading blame within the party should be
reminded that the PDP won the governorship election held on September
22, 2018, but was not allowed to take office by the powers that be in
the ruling party. Members should be proud that the electorate sided with
the party against the ruling party in that election and not blame each
other for the daylight robbery that deprived the party of the mandate
freely given by the good people of Osun State, which has brought shame
and disgrace to Nigeria as a country.”

He added, “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

“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

“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.”

Reacting to the
controversies surrounding reported adoption of Senator Adeleke as the
PDP consensus governorship candidate of the 2022 poll, the Deputy
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Diran Odeyemi, said a
chieftain of the party from Osun West, while addressing a meeting held
in Adeleke’s residence in Ede, on Tuesday, suggested that Senator
Adeleke should be re-presented by the party in 2022.

said, “Dr Babalola said in appreciation of the support of the Adelekes
to the PDP in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke should be represented
in 2022 and everyone seated clapped in appreciation of that motion.

I said was that after listening to assurances from Dr Deji Adeleke, who
assured us of continuous support, I suggested that he should be made
one of the leaders of our party. It happened at a political gathering.”
