The Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate for the Osun State Governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, says he is confident of victory.

Adeleke said this during a town hall meeting organised by Oduduwa Youth Development Initiative in Osun State on Wednesday.

“I will surely dance to government house by winning all the Local Government areas in Osun State on Saturday (September 22).

“I have been tagged ‘Dancing Senator’ but this shouldn’t be used against my personality because everybody dances. Have you seen someone who doesn’t dance?” he said.

Adeleke explained that his love for dancing dates back to his school days when he used to participate in dancing competitions.

“When I was in the university overseas, I used to go for a dancing competition. I do win the dancing competition. This is the reason why I was nicknamed ‘Jackson’ but my real name is Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke.

“There is no crime in dancing. My traducers are only trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. I strongly believe in my supporters’ vote and, by it, I will dance to the government house by winning in all the local government areas in Osun State.

Senator Adeleke also took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration in the state, particularly over the failure to fully pay workers.

“Anybody who fails to pay his or her labourers is wicked and I can boldly say that APC government is wicked for not paying her workers in the state.

“When I get to power, I will overturn it by ensuring that the welfare of every worker in the state is catered for.

“The insensitivity of the All Progressives Congress government is responsible for the state LAUTECH is in today and it is evidently clear to the masses that PDP government takes education as a priority.”
