I Never Said I Will Purchase Private Jet for Ooni If I Become Governor – Ademola Adeleke

I Never Said I Will Purchase Private Jet for Ooni If I Become Governor – Ademola Adeleke (Updated: Saturday 09th October 2021, 08:53 AM)


Senator Ademola Adeleke has denied reports that he promised to buy a jet for the Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II if he wins the governorship election in the state.

Adeleke is the gubernatorial aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The story which purportedly emanated from Moses Olafare, the Director of Media and Public Affair to the Ooni had claimed that the gubernatorial hopeful had promised to buy a jet for Ooni Ogunwusi.

The Media Assistant to Senator Adeleke, Femi Babalola in a press release exclusively obtained by Our Source disclosed that his principal who was in Ile-Ife to pay obeisance to the Ooni for his absence during the Olojo Day only assured the Ooni that the family Jet would be available for him whenever he is travelling overseas.

Babalola added that Adeleke said that whenever the Oonirisa is travelling overseas, a helicopter will be provided to take him to the airport where the family Jet will take him to his destination abroad.

The media aide also revealed that Adeleke also promised to rehabilitate the road leading to the town since it was already in a deplorable state.

He added that Adeleke had stated that he noticed with utter dismay the terrible state of the roads in the state and promised to prioritise road rehabilitation especially in Ife which has been considered to be the source of the Yoruba nation.

“However, at no time did he mention that he will purchase a jet for the Imperial Majesty, the Media Assistant only quoted the governorship flag bearer of the PDP out of context.

“We are not accusing him of getting a story as a media man but advising him to confirm the story before disseminating such.”

Meanwhile, in a telephone chat with a staff of the Ooni’s Directorate of Media and Public Affair, Our Source was made to understand that the news making the rounds was a personal story sent to some reporters who in a bid to add authenticity to their reports attributed it to Moses Olafare, the Ooni’s spokesperson.
