Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, has said that Deji Adeleke, Davido’s father may have gone mad following the death of his brother Senator Isiaka Adeleke.
According to PUNCH, the governor made this statement in Ede, Osun state, during the All Progressives Congress, campaign for the senatorial by-election scheduled for Saturday.
It was learnt that his altercation was in response to Deji Adeleke’s claims that he borrowed money from him.
Refuting the claims, he said that perhaps the singer’s father must have gone out of his mind, following the death of his brother Senator Isiaka Adeleke.
“Deji Adeleke is a business man, he is not a politician but it is like his brother’s death has run him mad.” (O dabi pe iku egbon e ti da lori ru). It is a lie that I borrowed money from Deji.
It is to the glory of God that they got the Certificate of Occupancy of their university from our government. Why didn’t those who are their new friends give them C of O of that university? .
If Deji Adeleke had so much money, why did he beg me to waive the payable tax of his university? Why couldn’t he just pay? I am bold enough to say this over and over again, because I have never sought assistance from any member of the Adeleke family, even during the lifetime of Senator Isiaka Adeleke. .
Nothing of such occurred. My relationship with the late Adeleke was cordial and beyond politics because we had known each other even before Osun politics, because our residences were adjacent to each other in Lagos State.”
