The leadership of the Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide (YCYW) on
Sunday passed a vote of confidence on Senator Ademola Adeleke of Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) for September 22, gubernatorial election in Osun State.
The group said that after consideration of all aspirants for the
polls, Adeleke, the candidate of PDP remained the best choice.
“Without any iota of doubt and in due recognition of Sen. Adeleke’s
sterling performance in a few months he emerged as the Senator for
Osun West Senatorial district, he has extended his hands of care and
passionate love for his people and beyond his immediate constituency
to the entire state.
“He has proven to be intellectually upright and capable to serve his
people as a true born Omoluabi and God sent liberator of his people
from monumental slavery.
“Not forgetting the fact that his late elder brother, Sen. Isiaka
Adeleke, popularly respected and regarded as ‘Serubawon’ whom was
gruesomely murdered had once succeeded on this path of honour before.
“More so, we believe he (Adeleke) can deliver on that same vision of
his late brother, coupled with his own double hedged sword of passion
and ardent care for his people.
“This, precipitates our unanimous resolution for his endorsement as
the best man for the job; a man of noble character and objective
candour to serve his people,” the group said in a statement.
The statement was jointly signed by Aremo Oladotun Hassan, Mr Segun
Nelson and Mr Sunday Murele, the President, South-West Coordinator and
the Osun Chairman of the YCYW respectively.
The NCYW said that Adeleke’s footprints of landmark achievements had
been felt and he had delivered on all promises made till date.
“This and many more reasons affirmed him as the most outstanding man
for the job,” they added.
The group called for an end of campaign of calumny against Adeleke,
saying he possessed every requirement to lead.
The NCYW, which expressed optimism that Adeleke would not disappoint
the people in socio-economic and infrastructure development, urged the
security agencies and the electoral umpire to ensure a credible poll.
NCYW is one of the leading and largest umbrella body of all Yoruba
Youths and students domiciled within the south-west region, nationally
and in the Diaspora.
