Adeleke Receives Certificate of Return

A certificate of return has been issued to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the by-election for the Osun West Senatorial District, Ademola Adeleke by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

It would be recalled that Adeleke was returned senator-elect on Sunday after he polled 97,480 votes to defeat his opponent from the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mudashiru Hussein, who scored 66,116 votes.

However, not too long after getting his certificate of return from INEC through its National Commissioner in charge of the South-West, Adedeji Soyebi,  Senator Adeleke made a declaration that the APC lacked internal democracy.

According to Adeleke, “This is a big lesson to the APC. They should stop interfering in the process of picking a candidate in an election.

“I followed due process but they did their imposition. The APC doesn’t practise internal democracy, but I am glad I am back to my political family, the PDP”.
