Chieftain Dare Adeleke, the Chieftain of Oyo state People’s Democratic Party has debunked news report making round that there was violence at the House of Assembly Primaries that held today at Ibadan South East.
He told reporters in Ibadan that the reports going round are “mischievous, fake and malicious news targeted at bringing the maligning the PDP.”
He said: ‘The APC demonic press are at it again, they have started spreading false, fake, malicious and demonic stories in an aim to bring opprobrium to our great party, the PDP.
“News making the rounds that the Ibadan South East primary was violent, was concocted from the pit of Hell.
“How can people twist facts so brazingly?’ He asked.
According to Adeleke who expressed shock at what he calls “strange news”: The election went on freely without any rancour at all.
“Why did the pro – Apc online vuvuzela continue to dish out false news in this manner? Not verifying the outright lies before going to the press is obnoxious. The fact is they rushed to publish their unprofessional and unethical story because they were fed by agents of the APC who know nothing about our congress or how it was held.” Adeleke noted.
The down to earth truth is that: “We had a very peaceful congress at our Local Govt Secretariat, Mapo Ibadan.”
The Pace Setter Transport boss disclosed that Modiu Opeyemi Akande emerged as the candidate of the PDP.
Adeleke stressed that neither himself nor Ambassador Taofeek Oladejo Arapaja, chased or intimidated anyone as is being “diabolically alleged.”
“We are from Ibadan South East constituency and we have every right to make the Congress a successful one despite not having voting rights”, he affirmed.
He also disclosed that INEC officials, the SSS and representatives of the party were on ground to witness the process.
