How Adeleke’s family responded after Aregbesola called Davido’s Father a mad man

Gov Aregbesola said recently that Isiaka Adeleke’s brother and the father of famous singer, Davido, Deji Adeleke, had gone insane because of the death of his elder brother. The family of Isiaka Adeleke has fired back at Governor Rauf
Aregbesola for describing business mogul as a mad man.

Dailypost reports that, the Adelekes reacted in a statement and noted that the
utterance of Aregbesola was not befitting of a governor, stressing that
the governor, who had not held the television programme, ‘Ogbeni Till
Day Break’, for some years, hurriedly organised one after the sudden
death of Isiaka and he danced all night long during the show.
The statement read, “What’s more appalling is Aregbesola’s outburst –
as widely quoted in major newspapers, that Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s
sudden death ‘has affected the psyche’ of Dr Deji Adeleke. How? One may
want to ask: If Aregbesola has a giant, a towering personality and
eminent person like the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke in his family, and
he lost such a distinguished personality to the cold hands of death,
will he take to the streets and dance merrily?
“Why should Ogbeni Aregbesola carry politics to this ridiculous end
and act like a tin god, who will never leave the office as governor and
this transient world as a human being? To those of us living, inclusive
of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, we don’t know how we will end up. Senator
Isiaka Adeleke died gloriously. The whole world celebrated his death.”
“What is the sin of the Adeleke family in putting one of their own
forward to contest the Osun-West senatorial by-election, if that is what
is giving Ogbeni Aregbesola some concern.
“If Aregbesola is talking of a contentious Certificate of Occupancy,
is he the one that provided the billions of naira that put Adeleke
University up as the ‘Harvard’ of Nigeria?”
