The Osun state chapter of The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the nullification of the candidacy of Senator Ademola Adeleke, as a victory for the state.
An Abuja High Court nullified Adeleke’s candidacy as the Osun guber candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party after he was dragged to court by two chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Wahab Raheem and Adam Habeeb.
The chieftains alleged that Adeleke does not possess a secondary school certificate which was a requirement for him to contest for the office of the governor.
The APC, in a statement issued by its Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi, said ”We’re too civilised to have Ademola Adeleke as a governor who presented a fake statement of results of the secondary school he attended and is currently under investigation for another NECO certificate forgery allegation.
”The court judgment, therefore, corroborated what we have known all along that this young man is best suited for the dance floor of a discotheque rather than the intellectually high demand of running Government Secretariat at Abere.
“Of all the highly qualified and intellectually solid individuals available even in the PDP, the party went for the lowest possible cadre, whose integrity is questionable but whose wealth is limitless.
”Fortunately for Osun, we can depend on Nigerian’s jurisprudence to uphold justice at the most critical point.
”We hope that the Appeal Court handling Osun governorship dispute will take judicial notice of this judgment that has practically disqualified Ademola Adeleke from the governorship position.”
