The Osun State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has declared that Senator Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in last year’s governorship election in Osun, is not fit to rule the state.
The comments were made by the party which issued a statement on Friday through its spokesman Kunle Oyatomi who said concerned members approached the court to seek clarity over Senator Adeleke’s eligibility to hold public office.
Oyatomi added that the scandals surrounding Senator Adeleke’s personality and qualifications were embarrassing, and that prompted some members of the PDP to to seek clarity in court.
The statement by the APC reads, “Adeleke’s personality is problematic and embarrassingly scandalous in regard to his educational qualifications.
“If the PDP as a political party is not embarrassed by the scandals surrounding Adeleke’s personality and qualifications, some of its members are concerned enough to seek clarity in court.
“But for the PDP through its chairman, Hon. Soji Adagunodo, to turn around and accuse the APC of instigating PDP’S members, led by Mr Ajayi Shuaib, to seek clarity in court appears dumb to us.
“Let’s remind the PDP that when Adeleke was rejected by the APC years back for the senatorial election, the PDP adopted him within hours and dumped their best qualified and professional minds.
“However, what they did not factor into their hasty adoption was the potentially obvious down sides of the young man. They did not really think it through,” the APC said.
