The All Progressives Congress (APC) has fired back at governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, who claimed that the APC conspired with the police to deprive him the opportunity to pursue his petition against the APC regarding the Osun elections. Read the report here.
The Osun state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked Adeleke to face his “fraud case” and stop dragging the party into his affair.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Director of Publicity, Research, and Strategy of the APC in Osun State, Mr. Kunle Oyatomi, recently released a statement reacting to the allegation leveled against the party by the PDP candidate. He said the PDP candidate was looking for excuses to justify his inadequacies.
“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.”
“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?”
“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.”
Adeleke had accused the police of conniving with the APC to stop him from retrieving his “stolen mandate”
Oyatomi said Adeleke is too preoccupied with entertainment to understand how the tribunal and the court processes work, hence the accusations.
Adeleke is yet to react to this as at press time.
