Ademola Adeleke, late Sen. Isiaka Adeleke’s brother, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Adeleke had only just been confirmed by the All Progressives Congress’ Screening Committee for the party’s primaries.
His defection was confirmed by Soji Adagunodo, the PDP Chairman in Osun State in a message to The Punch. Also, Saheed Afolabi, Secretary of the Adeleke Support Group, confirmed that the aspirant had picked the PDP nomination form. He said the party had already convinced other aspirants to step-down for him. He said the APC was suspected to be planning to rig the election in favour of Mudashiru Hussain. He stated that the entire people of the Osun West Senatorial District were solidly behind Adeleke, irrespective of his party, to win the July 8, 2017 bye-election.
