APC Reacts as Court Nullifies Senator Adeleke's Candidacy

Kunle Oyatomi

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Osun state has reacted after an Abuja High Court nullified the candidacy of Senator Ademola Adeleke, as the Osun State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

DAILY POST had reported on Tuesday that the Justice Oathman Musa-led court nullified Adeleke’s candidacy on the ground that he was not qualified academically for the position.

Adeleke was dragged to court by two chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Wahab Raheem and Adam Habeeb.

Both APC chieftains accused Adeleke of not possessing a secondary school certificate which was a prerequisite for him to contest for the office of the governor.

The party, reacting in a statement issued by its Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy Kunle Oyatomi described the verdict as a victory for the state, adding that Osun deserves better than an ill-educated juvenile as its governor.

The statement read, ”We’re too civilised to have a Ademola Adeleke as governor who presented a fake statement of result 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 discoteque 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.”
