Osun: Adeleke Speaks On Getting Help From Aregbesola To Defeat Oyetola

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke on Monday spoke on getting help from the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola to win the 16th July governorship election.

The governor-elect in his remark debunked the insinuation that Aregbesola helped him defeat the state governor, Gboyega Oyetola.

Recall that Adeleke defeated the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Oyetola on Saturday.

Adeleke won 17 local govt government in the state out of 30, whilst Oyetola had the rest 13 local govt government

Oyetola polled 375,027 votes, whilst Adeleke amassed 403,371 votes to win the governorship election.

There are insinuations that Aregbosola’s variations with the state Governor and Bola Tinubu ended in the defeat of Oyetola.

Adeleke while addressing the issue on Channels TV said he never met with Aregbesola before the election.

He, however, admitted that some allies of the minister worked for his victory in the governorship election.

Adeleke said, “I did not work with Aregbesola, I did not even speak to him, but I know some APC members and his allies that joined us. I can’t tell whether Aregbesola asked his associates to support me or not because I never had a conversation with him.”

The governor-elect when asked to assess the election said, “it is not easy to defeat an incumbent anywhere in the world.”
