Stop this Drama, PDP warned Police over Adeleke Invitation

Adeleke

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Wednesday reacted to the invitation of it’s governorship candidate for the Saturday’s election, Ademola Adeleke with the aid of the Nigeria Police Force.

Adeleke became requested to appear in front of the police for wondering over alleged exam malpractice and criminality charges.

Force Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, in a announcement on Wednesday, said Adeleke and Sikiru, his brother, sat for the National Examination Council Examination (NECO) as inner applicants in 2017, “impersonating” college students of OJO/Aro Community Grammar School in Osun state.

Moshood said the alleged crime changed into facilitated by way of the most important of the faculty and  other team of workers of the school.

Reacting, PDP warned the Police to desist from “performing the script of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against its candidate, Adeleke.”

In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola ogbondiyan, PDP described the latest twist in the “Adeleke certificate circus, leading to laughable trumped-up charges by the Police, as horrible, nauseating and displeasing.”

The party said the sudden realisation of allegations that Adeleke was involved in a National Examination Council (NECO) exam malpractice in 2017, as well as his subsequent invitation by the police, barely two days before the governorship election, was a ploy by the APC to distract the PDP candidate.

He said, “While the PDP is in no way against any legitimate effort by any security agency in the discharge of its duties, we totally reject this unrelenting attempt to use trumped up charges to take down our candidate, simply because the APC has realized that he is coasting to victory.

“Perhaps, the police needs to be educated that the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has already confirmed that Senator Adeleke wrote his WAEC examination in 1981, thus ending the earlier unnecessary controversy about his WAEC status.

“Moreover, this is the same police that have not been able to invite the disgraced erstwhile minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun, who confessed to having a forged NYSC Exemption Certificate or the Special Assistant to the President on Prosecution and Chairman of the Special Investigative Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, Chief Okoi Obono-Obla, whose certificate, WAEC openly told the National Assembly, is fake.

“Moreso, there are several leaders in APC, whose certificates have been questioned and which the Police have not considered it needful to conduct the littlest investigation.”

PDP called on the Inspector General of Police to protect the integrity of the Force by immediately calling his officers hounding Senator Adeleke to order.

“The issue of who becomes the governor of Osun state resides with the people of Osun and nothing should be allowed to disrupt the peaceful conduct of the election,” the statement added.
