THE Director-General of Ademola Adeleke campaign organisation, Chief Lere Oyewumi, on Thursday said there was no court order restraining Senator Ademola Adeleke from parading himself as the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the September 22 governorship poll in Osun.
This was contained in a press statement personally signed by Oyewumi, which was forwarded to the TribuneOnline in Osogbo
According to the statement, “the attention of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State has been drawn to a fake news being currently circulated by agents of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to the effect that a Federal High Court in Abuja has granted an order restraining Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke from parading himself as the candidate of our party for the September 22nd Governorship election.”
It reads, “we wish to state categorically that the purported order was never given by any court against our candidate. The falsehood is being perpetrated by handlers of the APC media team who are apparently feeling the heat of Senator Adeleke’s unstoppable march to victory in the forthcoming elections.”
“The PDP candidate has been declared fit and qualified to run for the governorship election by competent courts of records and will not be bothered by the desperate but ill-fated pursuit of his traducers.”
“The Adeleke campaign organisation wishes to enjoin millions of our supporters to continue to keep faith with the PDP as we intensify campaigns ahead of the September 22nd election. Surely, Osun will be liberated from the misrule of these mischief makers whose expiry date is imminent,” the statement concluded.
