Emerging details have it that, all things being equal – the Osun state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party has picked its gubernatorial candidate for the Saturday, September 22 election.
Informants claim Senator Demola Adeleke is the preferred man.
The Senator who replaced his deceased brother – Isiaka Adeleke – as Osun West Senator in June 2017 became clear choice after powerful politician Iyiola Omisore stepped down “in principle” based on “negotiation”.
The inheritor of his brother’s political legacy started campaigning for the governorship position barely two months after he was sworn in as Senator.
And emerging details have it that, he has finally secured the chance to have a go at his ambition.
Checks revealed the game plan is to leverage the sentiments and numbers advantage that earned him Senate seat to prosecute the gubernatorial agenda.
Adeleke and his crew are said to be in talks with a powerful politician in outgoing governor Aregbesola’s base to be his “deputy” as part of the strategy to ensure a comprehensive victory in the September 22 gubernatorial election.
