The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 22 election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has accused those he called “fifth columnists” for his travail.
Addressing reporters in Abuja yesterday, Director of Media and Publicity, Adeleke Campaign Organisation, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, said fifth columnists were playing out an alleged “destructive script of their paymaster” against the PDP.
Rasheed noted that while the campaign organisation recognised the right of any aggrieved aspirant to seek redress, the development, he said, raised discomforting questions about the real motive of the challenging camp.
Recall that A High Court sitting in Osun State on Thursday, gave Senator Adeleke, seven days to produce his secondary school certificate.
In his ruling on the ex-parte application filed by Rasheed Olabayo and Oluwaseun Idowu, Justice David Oladimeji, held that granting the leave to restrain the PDP from presenting Adeleke as its candidate due to his inability to present his school certificate to the party may subject the court to mockery, if eventually he presents the certificate.
The judge advised the PDP candidate to present his secondary school certificate before the court on Wednesday, August 1.
