Adeleke didn’t promise me private jet if elected gov – Ooni of Ife
THE Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has denied reports that Senator Ademola Adeleke promised to buy him a private jet if elected governor of Osun State.
The reports had said Adeleke promised he would provide the monarch an aircraft if he (Adeleke) succeeds Gboyega Oyetola.
Adeleke visited the Ooni on Wednesday.
Reacting to the reports yesterday, the Ooni’s spokesman, Moses Olafare, said that there was no such report issued from the palace, adding that the politician’s speech was twisted to drag the respected stool of the Ooni in the mud.
He also said the truth could be sought from videos that emanated from the visit.
Olafare added that the Ooni’s singular request was for a credible election, devoid of crisis for the betterment of all, which the PDP chieftain agreed to.
According to him, it is the usual character of all political office aspirants to make several promises like the reconstruction of roads in Ile-Ife and completion of the Osun State Airport project at Ido-Osun, among others.
“On the controversial ‘Private Jet’, it is a common knowledge that the Adeleke family has a fleet of private planes which could have been the basis for the governorship hopeful to have lightly said ‘Royal Father, private jet you may need for your trips are readily available’,” he stated.
