The Peoples Democratic Party, Southwest Nigeria has thrown its weight behind the candidature of Senator Ademola Adeleke as the party flag bearer for the September governorship election in Osun State.

The S/W party chairman, Eddy Olafeso said that Adeleke remained the authentic winner of the primary poll as he urged members to discard the allegation by one of the aspirant, Dr. Akin Ogunbiyi that the poll was rigged to favour Adeleke.

He said that Ogunbiyi was unfounded and that the winner, Adeleke qualified to be the candidate in all ramifications.

On the purported certificate scandal against the senator, Olafeso said he was a member of the screening committee and found Adeleke to be qualified before allowing him to contest in the primary.
