Singer, Davido has defended Osun State Governor-elect, Ademola Adeleke from a Twitter user who claimed that his uncle would loot the state’s funds.
Adeleke emerged victorious in last Saturday’s gubernatorial election, defeating the incumbent governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Gboyega Oyetola.
Reacting to this, a Twitter user, with the handle Atiyuski, alleged that Adeleke would use the state funds to build Atlanta, Georgia in the United States.
He further expressed concern for Osun people, saying they made a mistake.
Atiyuski wrote: “Las las Adeleke will use Osun state money to build Atlanta Georgia. What a pity for the people of Osun State.”
Responding to the tweet, Davido said that his family had four mansions in Atlanta since ’94’ and he could do a fact-check on it.
He wrote: “We‘ve had 4 mansions in Atlanta since 94 #factcheck”
The Independent National Electoral Commission on Wednesday presented the certificate of return to Ademola Adeleke.
The National Commissioner for INEC, supervising Osun, Ogun and Oyo states, Prof. Kunle Ajayi, presented the certificate to Adeleke and the Deputy Governor-elect, Kola Adewusi.
The governor-elect, while accepting the certificate at a brief ceremony held at Osun INEC head office in Osogbo, dedicated his victory in the governorship election to the memory of his late elder brother, Senator Isiaka Adeleke and the people of the state
