“The newest addition to the list of Governors on the platform of our great party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ademola Adeleke is a typical example of a man with many lives; determination; courage; perseverance in the face of challenges and hope when all odds seem to have been against one.
“You may be denied by the system, but if you stay on the path of truth and with your courage, determination and more importantly, with people and God on your side, victory will always be yours.
“Sir, your emergence symbolises new hope and the fact that the course that the PDP is chatting is the right one. It is a promise for better tomorrow for our party and that our great party will eventually lead the country to the Promised Land,” he said.
