Osun Guber Polls: Youth Group Endorses Adeleke Of PDP

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.
