Senator Ademola Adeleke, the gubernatorial candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Saturday’s Osun State governorship election has hit out at rude comments about his passion for dancing.
The embattled aspirant, who is dogged by claim of parading fake school certificates as police filed examination malpractice, and impersonation charges against him and his brother, Sikiru, took the occasion of an interactive session organised by the Oduduwa Youth Development Initiative, to speak about the controversy surrounding his love for dancing publicly, insisting he won’t drop the habit.
He said, “I have been tagged dancing Senator, but this shouldn’t be used against me because everybody dances. Have you seen someone who doesn’t dance? I am winning this election and I will dance to the Government House after that.
“When I was in the university overseas, I used to go for dancing competition. Although, I am a Nigerian, I still won dancing competitions which is the reason why I was nicknamed ‘Jackson,’ but my real name is Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke.”
