Ademola Adeleke, a lawmaker from Osun State and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant, has said he will dance to Osun State Government House by winning the September 22 Osun governorship election.
Adeleke said this during a town hall meeting organised by Oduduwa Youth Development Initiative in Osun State, on Wednesday.
He said: “I will surely dance to the government house by winning all the local government areas in Osun State on Saturday.
“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?
“When I was in the university overseas, I used to go for dancing competitions. 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’ votes and by it, I will dance to the government house by winning all in all the local government areas in Osun State.”
Adeleke, who has bow been dubbed the ‘dancing senator’ also took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration in the state.
He said: “Anybody who fails to pay his or her labourers is wicked and I can boldly say that APC government is wicked for not paying 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 where LAUTECH is today and it is evidently clear to the masses that PDP government takes education as a priority.”
