The family of late Senator Isiaka Adeleke outrightly condemned the insinuation of Governor Aregbesola of Osun state about Deji Adeleke’s as a mad mad.
Deji Adeleke, the father of Davido, popular hip hop artiste was described on Saturday, by the Governor of Omoluabi state to have been affected psychologically by the calamitous death of his brother, Senator Isiak Adeleke.
In response to the abuse of Aregbesola while he was campaigning for the APC’s candidate towards the soon-to-come Senatorial bye election, the family expressed their contempt against his words saying:
“What’s more appalling is Aregbesola’s outburst – as widely quoted in major newspapers, that Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s sudden death ‘has affected the psyche’ of Dr Deji Adeleke.
“How? One may want to ask: If Aregbesola has a giant, a towering personality and eminent person like the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke in his family, and he lost such a distinguished personality to the cold hands of death, will he take to the streets and dance merrily?
“Why should Ogbeni Aregbesola carry politics to this ridiculous end and act like a tin god, who will never leave the office as governor and this transient world as a human being? To those of us living, inclusive of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, we don’t know how we will end up. Senator Isiaka Adeleke died gloriously. The whole world celebrated his death.”
“What is the sin of the Adeleke’s family in putting one of their own forward to contest the Osun-West senatorial by-election, if that is what is giving Ogbeni Aregbesola some concern?
In a statement forwarded by Adeleke’s family, they also queried the assertion of Aregbesola over Certificate of Occupancy for Adeleke University owned by Davido’s father.
“If Aregbesola is talking of a contentious Certificate of Occupancy, is he the one that provided the billions of naira that put Adeleke University up as the ‘Harvard’ of Nigeria?”, the family queried.
