Court gives dancing Senator Adeleke Six days to Show Academic certificates.
As controversy surrounding the Osun state Peoples Democratic Party governorship primaries rages on, An Oshogbo high court has given six days to Senator Ademola Nurudeen Adeleke to present his WAEC certificates. Senator Adeleke representing Osun West emerged as the PDP candidate in the party primary held recently.
It will be recalled that two members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Rasheed Olabayo and Oluwaseun Idowu, have as a result of the controversy applied to the Osun State High Court for an order setting aside Adeleke’s election as the party’s flag bearer in the September gubernatorial election.
Olabayo, in his affidavit, said the senator truly attended Ede Muslim Grammar School “but did not leave with a School Leaving Certificate having absented himself from the school leaving examinations but for English where he scored a failing mark of F9”.
One of the exhibits provided to the court and obtained by The ICIR is Adeleke’s senior secondary school examination statement of result recently collected from Ede Muslim High School. It shows that the candidate had an F9 in English Language, while grades for Literature in English, Mathematics, Biology, Economics, Islamic Religious Studies, Christian Religious Studies and Geography, were said to be pending.
Justice David Oladimeji noted that “It will be inequitable not to allow the respondent to come and show his certificate if he has any but if given the opportunity to present side of the case, the balance which is necessary for interlocutory injunction would be adequately considered,” he therefore ruled that Adeleke presents his certificates in six, days.
