APC is a party of liars and Dr Ademola Adeleke defected to the PDP due to “injustice” in APC’s screening process for primaries.

The younger brother to late Sen. Isiaka Adeleke has been speaking about his political experience since emerging as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Osun West Senatorial District bye-election.

He told newsmen at PDP National Secretariat on Thursday in Abuja, while receiving the party’s flag for the July 8 election, that he won the APC's “first and second screening of aspirants for the election” but was denied.

“I was a PDP member before we had little problem which made my late brother and I to decamp to APC at the same time.

“Immediately we left PDP, they gave everybody a card; we registered, signed and showed it to the whole world.

“How can they come now and lie? They lied and they are shaking now.

“I was a member and I have left their party. That is not a party; a party that lied and not steadfast, thank God I am back home now to PDP,” he said.

On his chances of winning the bye-election, Adeleke, who emerged PDP candidate in Wednesday’s primaries, expressed optimism that he would win, saying that he was not new in Osun politics.

He said that most political parties, including the Accord and Labour, and people of the state, were in full support of his candidature.

National Chairman of PDP, Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, who presented the flag to Adeleke, assured him of the party’s support towards winning the election.

Sheriff promised to be at the candidate’s flag-off campaign at Ede, and urged him “to go and win the election”.
