Osun state governor, Rauf Aregbesola recently put the Adeleke’s family on blast including Davido’s billionaire father.
The governor said Davido’s father, Adedeji Adeleke and his entire family has gone insane over the death of his brother.
The Adeleke’s then released a statement responding to the governor’s comment. Daily Post reports that the Adeleke’s noted that the utterance of Aregbesola was not befitting of a governor, stressing that the governor, who had not held the television programme, ‘Ogbeni Till Day Break’, for some years, hurriedly organised one after the sudden death of Isiaka and he danced all night long during the show.
The statement in part reads…
“What’s more appalling is Aregbesola’s outburst – as widely quoted in major newspapers, that Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s sudden death ‘has affected the psyche’ of Dr Deji Adeleke. How? One may want to ask: If Aregbesola has a giant, a towering personality and eminent person like the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke in his family, and he lost such a distinguished personality to the cold hands of death, will he take to the streets and dance merrily?
“Why should Ogbeni Aregbesola carry politics to this ridiculous end and act like a tin god, who will never leave the office as governor and this transient world as a human being? To those of us living, inclusive of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, we don’t know how we will end up. Senator Isiaka Adeleke died gloriously. The whole world celebrated his death.”
“What is the sin of the Adeleke family in putting one of their own forward to contest the Osun-West senatorial by-election, if that is what is giving Ogbeni Aregbesola some concern.
“If Aregbesola is talking of a contentious Certificate of Occupancy, is he the one that provided the billions of naira that put Adeleke University up as the ‘Harvard’ of Nigeria?”
