In this concluding part of his exclusive encounter with Asabe Afrika TV, eminent Nigerian, High Chief Abiola Ogundokun brings his voice to bear on the ongoing political situation in Osun State (South Western Nigeria), giving his verdict concerning the pendulum of victory for both People’s Democratic Party’s candidate, Senator Nurudee Adeleke and All Progressive Congress candidate Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola.
The September 22, 2018 election in Osun State appeared to have favored Ede, Osun State born Senator Demola Nurudee Adeleke, whose elder brother Senator Isiaka Adeleke aka Serubawon was suspected to have been poisoned by associates in April 2017 during a political rally in Iwo. Although there are still pending controversies relating to result of his autopsy which the family claimed to have been tactically withheld by the outgoing regime of Alhaji Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola.
The electorates appeared to have given a massive sympathy vote to Adeleke, same way they helped him douse and disgrace one Senator Hussein the APC used to challenge him two years earlier when he dumped APC to pursue his senatorial dream in PDP.
However, INEC declared the September 22 election where Adeleke was leading inconclusive and fixed another one for Thursday September 27 where it was largely believed that political thugs from Lagos were brought in to harass electorates and thereby gave tactical support to APC’s Gboyega Oyetola to win as only alleged loyal electorates were allowed to exercise their franchise.
A recent election tribunal sitting in Abuja gave victory back to Senator Adeleke but the judgement was appealed by Oyetola and his party.
Chief Abiola Ogundokun, a former tactical chairman of PDP in Osun State who appeared to have dumped politics for statesmanship expressed his opinion in this new interview.
Ogundokun, a political force in Iwo, Osun State and former associate of Senator Isiaka Serubawon Adeleke gave his vivid analysis on why he thinks Adeleke might find it difficult getting to power to rule Osun State.
