This could this be the breakthrough Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the upcoming Osun state gubernatorial election is waiting for as the paramount ruler of Ede, Oba Munirudeen Lawal has directed residents and indigenes of Ede to vote massively for Senator Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke.
Speaking while receiving the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate at Ede yesterday, the traditional ruler tasked heads of families and quarters in the town to mobilise and ensure they deliver Ede votes to one of their own whom he described as capable and competent to govern the state.
The royal father, who recalled how Adeleke was rigged out in 2018 declared that Osun West now has another historical opportunity to claim the governorship especially as Adeleke has all what it takes to compete and win the election.
The royal father asked his subjects to ignore the promise of a rotational power to Osun West in 2026 by the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), saying the time to vote for Osun West is now.
The King today reiterated that “Omo eni kise idi bebere kafi ileke si idi omo elomi”, noting that his faith is strong that Adeleke can take Osun to greater height.
Senator Adeleke in his remarks at the palace described the royal father as a faithful father of all Ede people , promising that he would not let the royal father down for the confidence deposed in him.
