Davido’s family has reacted to comments linked to Gov. Aregbesola of Osun State, where he reportedly called Davido’s father, Deji Adeleke, a mad man whose brother Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s death affected psychologically.
This is coming after the music star’s family rejected the state government’s offer, to investigate what really killed their Sen. Isiaka who was a serving senator before his death.
Responding to Aregbesola’s outburst while he was campaigning for their son who is an APC Senatorial candidate in the bye election that will be held soon, the family expressed their contempt against his words saying:
“What’s more appalling is Aregbesola’s outburst – as widely quoted in major newspapers, that Senator Isiaka Adeleke’s sudden death ‘has affected the psyche’ of Dr Deji Adeleke.
“How? One may want to ask: If Aregbesola has a giant, a towering personality and eminent person like the late Senator Isiaka Adeleke in his family, and he lost such a distinguished personality to the cold hands of death, will he take to the streets and dance merrily?
Why should Ogbeni Aregbesola carry politics to this ridiculous end and act like a tin god, who will never leave the office as governor and this transient world as a human being? To those of us living, inclusive of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, we don’t know how we will end up. Senator Isiaka Adeleke died gloriously. The whole world celebrated his death.”
“What is the sin of the Adeleke’s family in putting one of their own forward to contest the Osun-West senatorial by-election, if that is what is giving Ogbeni Aregbesola some concern?
In a statement forwarded by Adeleke’s family, they also queried the assertion of Aregbesola over Certificate of Occupancy for Adeleke University owned by Davido’s father.
“If Aregbesola is talking of a contentious Certificate of Occupancy, is he the one that provided the billions of naira that put Adeleke University up as the ‘Harvard’ of Nigeria?”, the family queried.
