The business mogul, philanthropist and very humble illustrious son of Ede in Osun state, Dr. Deji Adeleke has debunked the rumor that he would contest in the next year governorship election in the State.
A press statement issued on Monday on behalf of Dr. Deji Adeleke and signed by Mr. Dele Adeleke described the insinuation that Dr. Deji Adeleke wanted to contest for the gubernatorial poll on the platform of All Progressive Congress as false, unfounded and ludicrous.
According to the statement, “our attention has been drawn to a rumor in a section of the media that Dr. Deji Adeleke is being pressured to contest for the governorship seat in Osun State on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).”
“Dr. Deji Adeleke is not interested in seeking any political office nor involved in any talks/plot to make him the governorship candidate of APC or any other political party. Dr. Adeleke is not a politician and has chosen to continue to render his contributions and service to humanity in his private capacity and through his foundation.”
“We hereby appeal to the good people of Osun state and all Nigerians to disregard the mischievous publication in its entirety.”
