Adeleke denies certificate forgery allegation

Senator Adeleke recently reacted to reports on social media saying that he did not use his original O level certificate when he contested the Osun West Senatorial District by-election in July 2017.
A group known as Renewal Youth Movement called out the lawmaker, threatening to drag him to court if he does not present his certificates.
According to the lawmaker, the allegations levelled against him are false.

The Senator’s younger brother, Dele Adeleke who spoke to Punch on his behalf, said “How can anybody believe such a story? You know the kind of opposition that rose up against him last year. Do you think the APC would not have raised the issues if he did not have the authentic certificates?
“Also, you are free to go to the school he attended and verify. That will be better than hearing from me or him. That story is not true and it should be discountenanced.”
So far, the All Progressives Congress (APC), African Democratic Congress (ADC), Social Democratic Party (SDP) have announced their candidates for the September 22, 2018 Osun governorship election.
They are: Gboyega Isiaka Oyetola, the Chief of Staff to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Alhaji Kazeem Adio, a former Secretary to the Osun State Government and Senator Iyiola Omisore, a former Deputy Governor of Osun state, respectively.
