FAKE NEWS! Who Said Senator Adeleke Was Dead?
‘Ademola Adeleke Slumps, Dies At Lagos Airport’ was the caption of the news published by an online media on Thursday morning and it went viral very quickly.
But it was later discovered that the deceased only shared the same names with Osun PDP governorship candidate, Senator Adeleke.
But before this was found out, the news already threw the Ede community, the country home of the politician into a state of confusion.
Supporters of the dancing senator as he is fondly called trooped to his home to confirm the news.
The Campaign Organization of Senator Adeleke had to quickly debunk the news and set the records straight.
“Our attention has been drawn to an evil rumour circulating about the state of health of Senator Ademola Adeleke. We affirm that the people’s governor is hale and hearty.
“As a distinguished senator and holder of the people’s
mandate, Ademola Adeleke has been attending to statutory duties within and
outside his constituency in good health and high spirit. There was no time the
Senator suffered health failure either at airport or anywhere else.
“We, therefore, urge our teeming supporters and the good people of Osun state to ignore any fake news purporting health failure on the part of the Senator. It is a product of warped minds and infantile imagination of usurper of peoples’ mandate.
“All hands are on deck to regain the mandate of the people freely given on September 22. We owe Osun people that sacred duty.”
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Diran Odeyemi said: “We want to urge Nigerians and rumour peddlers not to wish our candidate dead. We are optimistic that Senator Adeleke will reclaim his mandate in Osun State and liberate Osun people.”
