The family of the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last Osun Guber polls, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has alleged that it was deceived by the party.

The allegation was made in a statement on Thursday signed by Mr. Adeleke’s elder brother, Adedeji, who s father of singer, Davido.

The statement said Adeleke had no intention of contesting the governorship election in the first place.

Mr. Adedeji said Adeleke was cajoled by PDP leadership and elders before the family accepted “most reluctantly after receiving assurances and promises that were never kept.”

After describing himself as a non-member of a political party in the country, Adedeji said: “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 kept.

“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 comes.

“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.”
