Commissioners nominees not Adeleke’s daughter, uncle

Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has clarified that none of the commissioners nominees comes from his family.

In a release by Spokesperson to the governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the governor described as fake the news alleging that Mrs Adenike Folasade Adeleke was his daughter and Professor Maroof Adeleke his uncle.

The statement read, “There is no truth whatsoever in the report as neither of the two nominees are daughter or uncle of the Governor. Prof Adeleke was born at Ilesa and hails from Osogbo, the state capital. Mrs Adeleke is the daughter of Chief Omidiran of Osogbo Land and wife of the late Executive Governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke.

“We had expected those pushing the fake news to engage in basic investigative journalism if they have any altruistic motive. If however the goal is to malign the state Governor, the truth can not be hidden as the nominees are bona-fide indigenes of Osogbo Land.

“We, therefore, urge members of the public to ignore those merchants of fake news. No biological member of the Governor’s family is included in the cabinet list. Governor Adeleke is committed to fair distribution of appointments based on competency, spread and sectoral representation.
