- The Osun chapter of APC said people of the state don't want Senator Ademola Adeleke as their governor
- A court's judgment earlier nullified the nomination of Ademola Adeleke as candidate of PDP in the September 2018 governorship election in the state
- Justice Oathman Musa delivering judgment in the suit earlier annulled Adeleke’s nomination on the grounds that he violated section 177 of the 1999 constitution as amended
The Osun chapter of All Progressives Congress has reacted to the judgment of an Abuja High Court which disqualified Ademola Adeleke from contesting the state governorship election of 2018.
The party alleged that Adeleke presented a fake statement of result of the secondary school he attended and is currently under investigation for another NECO certificate forgery allegation.
The party in a statement issued by its director of publicity, research and strategy Kunle Oyatomi said: “long before independence, this state has produced intellectual giants and exceptionally brilliant businessmen and technocrats including jurists of international standard.

”We’re too civilised to have a Ademola Adeleke as governor who presented a fake statement of result of the secondary school he attended and is currently under investigation for another NECO certificate forgery allegation.
”The court judgment therefore corroborated what we have known all along that this young man is best suited for the dance floor of a discoteque rather than the intellectually high demand of running government Secretariat at Abere.
“Of all the highly qualified and intellectually solid individuals available even in the PDP, the party went for the lowest possible cadre, whose integrity is questionable but whose wealth is limitless.

”Fortunately for Osun, we can depend on Nigerian’s jurisprudence to uphold justice at the most critical point.
”We hope that the Appeal court handling Osun governorship dispute will take judicial notice of this judgment that has practically disqualified Ademola Adeleke from the governorship position.''
Recall that Legit.ng reported that two Senior Advocates of Nigeria, (SAN) said the FCT High Court judgment which nullified the nomination of Ademola Adeleke as candidate of PDP in the September 2018 governorship election in Osun cannot stand the test of time.
Speaking on Wednesday, April 3, in Abuja, Isreal Olondare (SAN) said the judgment was not a sound one because the law stipulated that a person aspiring to any political office must be educated up to school certificate level.
