The governorship candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the Osun election, Senator Ademola Adeleke has said that he is still alive.
A passenger named Ademola Adeleke scheduled to travel out of the country on Wednesday morning slumped and died at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.It was gathered that the passenger, who arrived at the airport early in the morning for his flight, slumped and started gasping for breath at about 5.30am.
An eyewitness, however, stated that Adeleke did not respond to treatment even after the health officials tried to revive him by giving him oxygen.
Senator Adeleke through his campaign organization on Thursday issued a statement describing his death as falsehood.
The statement read:”Our attention has been drawn to an evil rumour circulating about the state state of health of Senator Ademola Adeleke. We affirm that the people’s governor is hale and hearty.
“As a distinguished senator and holder of the people’s mandate, Ademola Adeleke has been attending to stautory duties within and outside his constituency in good health and high spirit.There was no time the Senator suffers health failure either at airport or anywhere else.
“We therefore urge our teeming supporters and the good people of Osun state to ignore any fake news purporting health failure on the part of the Senator. It is a product of warped minds and infantile imagination of usurper of peoples mandate.
“All hands are on deck to regain the mandate of the people freely given on September 22. We owe Osun people that sacred duty.”
The Statement however added that,Sen Adeleke said is healthy and strong, adding that in his good health, to reclaime the stolen mandate.
