Deji disclosed this on Thursday in a statement made available to Punchng.com where he revealed that Senator Ademola did not become the party’s governorship flag bearer out of volition and hinted that the PDP reneged on the agreement with the family.

Quoting the billionaire businessman, the paper wrote: “As for the Adeleke family, of which I am one, we will like to remind all the PDP members that Senator Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke had no intention to contest the governorship election in the first place, but was invited and prevailed upon by the party leadership and party elders to contest the governorship election, which he and his family accepted most reluctantly after receiving assurances and promises that were never kept.”
