I didn’t need WAEC result for admission into US varsity —Adeleke

I didn’t need WAEC result for admission into US varsity —Adeleke

The governorship candidate of the
Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has
said he gained admission into the university he attended in the United
States without presenting his West African School Certificate
Examination result.

Adeleke said this in Ede on Thursday
while reacting to the dismissal of the suit filed against his
eligibility before Justice David Oladimeji of the Osun State High Court.

Adeleke, who was flanked by some of his
mates at the Ede Muslim Grammar School, Ede said he was well known
during his school days because he loved his schoolmates and loved

The PDP candidate said he sat for a qualifying examination before he was given admission to the university.

He said, “We all went to school and we
know that some results would not be released. But they may release the
remaining results tomorrow. Who knows? After I sat for the exams, my
mind was in the US.  The university I attended did not need our
qualification from here. I say for their qualifying exam.”

He said he had been calling aspirants
that contested with him for the PDP’s sole ticket and that he had held a
meeting with Dr Akin Ogunbiyi in the presence of the National Chairman
of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, and the national organising
secretary of the party.

Adeleke said, “I chose to remain quiet
since the conclusion of the governorship primary for two reasons; first
it is my unchanged belief in party supremacy and utmost respect for the
leadership of our great party.

“The second reason is because the issue
of my qualification and eligibility as a governorship candidate has been
a subject of litigation until yesterday. Now that a judicial
pronouncement confirming my qualification and eligibility to contest has
been made, the time is now right to speak on the matter.

“For the records, let me reiterate the
obvious and easily verifiable fact that I attended the Ede Muslim
Grammar School between 1979 and 1981, my schoolmates are everywhere, and
some are even here with me. While in school, I was a lover of football,
so I was very popular. I was elected the president of the alumni
association of this same school until recently.”

He described those questioning his attendance at the school as “clearly being mischievous and deceptive.”

Adeleke added, “I also must express my
gratitude to the judiciary for upholding the truth despite the pressure.
It is now clear and proven that I did not forge any certificate or
testimonial. In any case, how can I forge a testimonial that simply
attests to the fact of my attendance at the school?”

 Adeleke assured the people of the state of his determination to provide
quality leadership and to rescue them from the ‘mess’ created by the
present administration in the state.
