The governor of Osun state, Gboyega Oyetola, has given a very hard knock to the PDP governorship candidate in the last Osun gubernatorial election, Senator Ademola Adeleke popularly known as the Dancing Senator, saying he felt ridiculed to have contested against such a person.
Oyetola said this when he received the leadership of the Social Democratic Party ,SDP, led by Yemi Farounbi in his office on Wednesday, July 17.
In his words, “The country’s electoral system is weak, especially regarding the screening of candidates which gave room for somebody like Ademola Adeleke to contest for governorship seat of the state.”
“Sometimes when I sit down and realize that I was actually contesting with Adeleke, who is best at dancing, I felt ridiculed, very ridiculed. It would have been a tragedy for our state if the whole thing had turned the other way round.”
“Anybody that is seriously concerned about the development of the state would at least be interested in whoever is going to pilot the affairs of the state.”
“One wonders why the country’s electoral laws would have allowed that guy to even contest in the first instance. We don’t have control.”
