The governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Osun State, Ademola Adeleke has boasted that his alleged stolen mandate in 2018 will be recovered in the coming poll.
Adeleke, made this disclosure in Osogbo while welcoming hundreds of opposition party decampees led by a former aide of Rauf Aregbesola, Kolapo Alimi on Wednesday.
The opposition’s candidate claimed his mandate was stolen in the last election – 2018.
“In 2018, they stole the mandate of the people and people are ready to fight for their mandate. So, by the special grace of God, the people of Osun are going to get it back come July 16.
“I feel so good, the impression is great, as you can see, this crowd is not a fake crowd, it’s not a rented crowd; this is for real. Osun is moving, Osun is talking. They are saying loud and clear they want ‘Imole’ right now.” he said.
When asked if he is concerned about the election being rigged again, he said the new electoral law, signed by President Muhammadu Buhari has reduced the chances of anyone trying to rig the election.
“I believe that a lot of people of Osun State are wiser. They are ready to defend their votes so I don’t believe it going to be possible. It’s not by force to rule, people have to decide who they want and I believe it is me, Senator Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke.
“The chances of PDP are growing, let me just say 80%, and I thank you so much for your cooperation.”
