The Osun State Chapter of the Hope Democratic Party (HDP) has drawn the attention of the National Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) Osun State Branch to some recent campaign posters circulating on social media platforms for the yet-to-be-vacated seat of the Late Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke, who until his untimely death, the senator representing Osun West in the Senate.
This was contained in a statement issued to our reporter yesterday by the Osun State HDP Chairman, Mr. Wole Adedoyin shortly after an emergency meeting of the party in Ilesa yesterday.
According to Mr. Adedoyin, “This is inhuman, heartless and cruel. It is now revealed that Senator Adeleke’s death was not natural but political. Imagine three weeks after his death, some members of PDP went to the social media campaigning for the yet-to-be-vacated seat of the deceased. We are also not happy with the statement issued by a factional Chairman of PDP, Hon. Soji Adagunodo yesterday on the social media politicizing the death of our beloved Senator. “
The party further urged high profiled politicians and political parties to stop politicizing Senator Adeleke’s death.
“The government of Osun should quickly put in place committee with the major aim of immortalizing the good name of the first civilian governor of the state, Adedoyin added.
