Osun state gubernatorial aspirant Senator Ademola Adeleke has prophesied success for himself at tomorrow’s elections.
This came as Senator Adeleke, has obtained a court order restraining the police from arresting him. On Wednesday, the police summoned him for alleged examination malpractice and criminal conspiracy.
According to Channels TV, in granting Adeleke’s application, the court issued an order restraining the police, “their agents or privies from taking any steps by way of arresting and or detaining the applicant that will infringe on the liberty and freedom of the applicant to prepare for and participate in the Osun state governorship election of the 22 day of September, 2018 and thereafter, pending the determination at the substantive application.”
Adeleke, at an interactive session organised by the Oduduwa Youth Development Initiative in Osogbo, said the APC-led government had inflicted hardship on the state, adding that he is confident of winning because of the support he enjoys.
In a report monitored from TheCable, he said: “I have been tagged dancing Senator, but this shouldn’t be used against me because everybody dances. Have you seen someone who doesn’t dance? I am winning this election and I will dance to the government house after that.
“When I was in the university overseas, I used to go for dancing competitions. Although, I am a Nigerian, I still won dancing competitions which is the reason why I was nicknamed ‘Jackson’, but my real name is Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke.”
Criticising the education policy of Rauf Aregbesola, outgoing governor of Osun, he said: “Anybody who fails to pay his or her labourer is wicked and I can boldly say that the APC government is wicked for not paying its workers and pensioners in the state.
“The menace of non-payment of salary is responsible for the 29th position of this state in the ranking of WAEC; but when I get to power, I will turn it around by ensuring that the welfare of every worker in the state is catered for.
“The insensitivity of the All Progressives Congress government is responsible for the state where LAUTECH is today and it is evidently clear to the masses that the PDP government takes education as a priority.”
