Osun West bye election: Ademola Adeleke emerges PDP candidate

Ademola Adeleke



The younger brother of late  Sen. Isiaka Adeleke, Demola, has emerged the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the Osun West Senatorial  District bye-election.

Adeleke, who had been cleared to contest for the primary on the platform of the All Progressive Congress,  defected to PDP on Tuesday evening.

Adeleke was set to contest the primary in APC unopposed after his opponent,  Sen. Mudashiru Husain, was disqualified on Sunday by the APC screening committee headed by Zamfara Assembly Speaker, Sanusi Rikiji.



Hussein was disqualified by the committee which stated that he was still in active public service against the stipulated party’s guideline.

According to Rikiji, the party’s   guideline stipulates that any aspirant that wants to contest an elective office is expected to have resigned from the public service 30 days before the primaries.

Hussein was the commissioner for cabinet matters in the Rauf Aregbesola administration  which was inaugurated on May 30.

The disqualification was upheld by the Appeal Committee of the party headed by Abdulahi Bello.

Hussein was, however, cleared on Monday evening by the National Working Committee of the APC to contest the primary.

Adeleke,  who contested the PDP primary unopposed on Wednesday in Iwo Local Government Area of the state,  scored 343 votes.

In his acceptance speech, Adeleke said the PDP would win the election.

” I accepted to contest the election under PDP and come July 8, we shall have victory.

” Victory shall be ours and nothing can stop us. We are moving forward because it is God’s project,’’ he said.

The PDP Chairman in the state, Mr Soji Adagunodo, said the party would win the bye-election.

According to him, there is no faction in PDP but only aggrieved members.

” We are going to win the election and come 2018, we will still win,’’ he said.


The Independent National Electoral Commission has fixed July 8 for the bye-election following the vacuum created by the death of  Sen. Adeleke on April 23.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
