In the middle of the debate about his educational credentials, Ademola Adeleke, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor of Osun State, has disclosed why he went back to school.
Remember that Adeleke’s educational background, particularly his Senior Secondary School Certificate, served as a key campaign tool for his political rivals who asserted that the lawmaker did not complete secondary schooling.
Adeleke declared a state of emergency on education during the Sunday governorship debate, which was televised by Channels Television.
Giving his reasons, Senator Ademola noted that he went back to school where there were controversies surrounding his educational qualification.
The PDP governorship added that he went back to school to be a role model for the young people, even the adults to prove that it’s never too late to be educated.
He said: “As soon as I become Governor of Osun State, I’ll declare a state of emergency on education.
“You know why? Because I went back to school when there were controversies surrounding my educational qualifications.
“I went back to school to be a role model for the young people, even the adults to prove that it’s never too late to be educated.
“I went back there very boldly and studied with people that should be my grandchildren. Today, I thank God that I’m more educated and ready to rule Osun State.”
