Senator Ademola Adeleke, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, has dismissed the story that has been causing controversy over his visit to the Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, as a fiction of the writer’s imagination.
The news claimed that the gubernatorial candidate had pledged to buy a jet for Ooni Ogunwusi, according to Moses Olafare, the Ooni’s Director of Media and Public Affairs.
The Media Assistant to Senator Adeleke, Femi Babalola in a press release exclusively obtained by reporters disclosed that his principal who was in Ile-Ife to pay obeisance to the Ooni for his absence during the Olojo Day only assured the Ooni that the family Jet would be available for him whenever he is travelling overseas.
Babalola added that Adeleke said that whenever the Oonirisa is travelling overseas, a helicopter will be provided to take him to the airport where the family Jet will take him to his destination abroad.
The media aide also revealed that Adeleke also promised to rehabilitate the road leading to the town since it was already in a deplorable state.
He added that Adeleke had stated that he noticed with utter dismay the terrible state of the roads in the state and promised to prioritise road rehabilitation especially in Ife which has been considered to be the source of the Yoruba nation.
“However, at no time did he mention that he will purchase a jet for the Imperial Majesty, the Media Assistant only quoted the governorship flag bearer of the PDP out of context.
“We are not accusing him of getting a story as a media man but advising him to confirm the story before disseminating such.”
