The All Progressives Congress has fired back at governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, who is facing trial over alleged examination malpractices. They have asked him to leave the party out of his troubles.
According to Punch, the Director of Publicity, Research, and Strategy of the APC in Osun State, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, recently released a statement reacting to the allegation levelled against the party by the PDP candidate.
“Senator Ademola Adeleke should face his problem squarely and stop looking for props and excuses to justify his inadequacies. APC did not ask him to commit the examination fraud,” the statement read, continuing, “That is a matter with the police. And we are not police prosecutors. If he has been taken to court by the police, how is that the business with the APC?”
This comes amid Adeleke’s claim that the APC conspired to deprive him the opportunity to pursue his petition against the APC regarding the Osun elections.
“It is immature, pedestrian and patently wrong for Ademola to accuse the APC and police of conspiring to deprive him of the ability to prosecute his own case. Perhaps the PDP candidate is too much engrossed in entertainment to find the time to understand how the tribunal and the court processes work. He should try and update himself, so as to know what to do, rather than embarrassing himself and his party,” the statementadded.
Adeleke had yet to react to this as at press time.
