Adeleke Family Alleges Betrayal, Rejects 2022 PDP Gov Ticket

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.
