Briefing newsmen after the meeting, Adeleke said, John Bray asked if he was under any threat because of what happened in Ekiti State.
“But I told him that Osun is different from Ekiti. The people of Osun State are vibrant because they will vote and monitor their votes, which led to me winning the by-election in landslide and I believe same thing will happen in 2018.
