The Senator representing Osun West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Ademola Adeleke, has vowed to support whoever wins the People Democratic Party (PDP) governorship ticket on September 22, 2018.
Adeleke, who is one of the contenders for the PDP’s ticket, stated this during a visit to the state executives in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
The lawmaker, who submitted his letter of intention last week, said “I want to assure that I am ready to back or support whoever emerged as the flag bearer of our great party in the primary exercise.”
He disclosed that his decision to contest in the coming governorship election, was as a result of 40 days fasting embarked on by the Adeleke family, stressing that “the outcome of the fasting and prayer is that we are going to serve Osun people. We would use our local and international connection to change the economic fortune of this state for better.”
According to Adeleke, “No more impunity Osun. I am going to serve. If I don’t win the PDP primaries, I would support whoever emerges as the flag bearer. I never knew that I would become a Senator. All the mothers, I am begging you to back me the way you backed me during the Osun West Senatorial election. My campaign promise during the senatorial election of funding a scholarship for indigent students to the tune of N250 million has been fulfilled.
“In one of the communities of Iwo, during the campaign, the people said that they needed an industrial generator. I was able to provide them with generator within a month. I also donated transformer to Ido Osun. I have been building schools in Orileowu area
“Very soon, we shall take delivery of 20 new transformers to light up some communities in Osun. I have the confidence of becoming the next governor of Osun State. My confidence is buoyed by the party members, supporters and the generality of the people. I have sponsored so many bills on youth empowerment.”
