Aregbesola said this at Ede during the campaign of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Osun West Senatorial District by-election holding on Saturday.
This is coming after an allegation against him that he owed Deji Adeleke money whereas he did not.
He was quoted saying :
“Deji Adeleke is a business man, he is not a politician but it is like his brother’s death has run him mad.” (O dabi pe iku egbon e ti da lori ru). It is a lie that I borrowed money from Deji.
It is to the glory of God that they got the Certificate of Occupancy of their university from our government. Why didn’t those who are their new friends give them C of O of that university?
If Deji Adeleke had so much money, why did he beg me to waive the payable tax of his university? Why couldn’t he just pay? I am bold enough to say this over and over again, because I have never sought assistance from any member of the Adeleke family, even during the lifetime of Senator Isiaka Adeleke.
Nothing of such occurred. My relationship with the late Adeleke was cordial and beyond politics because we had known each other even before Osun politics, because our residences were adjacent to each other in Lagos State.”
