Osun APC, PDP trade words over Gov Adeleke’s whereabouts


The whereabouts of the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has been demanded by the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state

The demand, which is contained in a statement by the Osun APC chairman, Tajudeen Lawal on Monday, is coming about one month after Governor Adeleke departed the state for a working vacation, according to information made available by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed.

The Osun APC which maintained that the people of the state deserved to know where their governor is and his condition of health, added nothing had been heard about Adeleke’s movement two weeks after he left the state.

Lawal stated that the lacuna in information was giving room to speculations in various quarters.

He tasked Adeleke’s media handlers to come out clean on the true situation and location of the governor.

“Adeleke must rise up to his constitutional responsibilities of providing qualitative governance for the people.

“Any mortal can fall sick any time and anywhere. It, however, becomes a matter of public interest when someone who is politically exposed, like Governor Adeleke, is now found wanting in the performance of his constitutional responsibilities.

“There is no human being who could be engaging in the dancing style of Governor Adeleke at 60 plus that would not have one or two health challenges to contend with.

“It is important for the Adeleke handlers to keep watch over him to ensure that he desists from the cumulative effects of the factors responsible for his current questionable health status,” he said.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state, Sunday Bisi, has said Adeleke would be arriving in the country this week after a month’s vacation outside the country.

Bisi in a statement by the Osun PDP Director of Media and Publicity of the, Oladele Olabamiji, recalled that Adeleke had gone on the first vacation ever since assuming the governorship of the state a year ago.

The statement also said the governor’s vacation was publicly announced by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, who reiterated that the vacation was a working one during which Adeleke would rest and also meet partners for the development of Osun.

“Mr Governor has used the one-month vacation to relax, reenergise, refresh, and recharge as he starts his second year in office.

“You remember the governor granted an interview on both radio and newspapers to mark his one year in office, and I can tell you our governor has no health challenges. It is not a crime to take a vacation after working so hard for 12 good months,” he said.

Bisi revealed that while on vacation, the Governor was coordinating his team from abroad.

“He launched the implementation of the Multi-billion Infra Plan project. Everybody can see the ongoing work at the Oke-fia/Lameco Junction. Our Governor is even working while on vacation.

“As soon as the Governor arrives this week, Osun should be prepared for more delivery of dividends of democracy and good governance. Osun APC is just chasing shadows. The Adeleke governorship is the best for the state,” Bisi added
