EFCC Freezes Ademola Adeleke And Davido’s Bank Accounts

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Saturday affirmed reports that the bank accounts of its governorship aspirant in the up and coming Osun State electiom, Ademola Adeleke and that of his family have been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

PDP thusly charged President Muhammadu Buhari to guide the anti graft agency to quickly unfreeze the private record of Adeleke, and those of his relatives, including music star, David Adeleke (Davido).

In an announcement marked by its representative, Kola Ogbondiyan, PDP denounced the “solidifying of the records as severe, overbearing, provocative and an immediate formula for emergency in the state, given that the general population of Osun are firmly behind Adeleke in front of the decision.”

The statement reads, “In addition, the PDP directs its members, including state governors, officials at zonal and state chapters, national and states assembly members, all presidential and governorship aspirants as well as other stakeholders, particularly, in the southwest zone, to immediately commence movement into Osun state with their political machinery to campaign and support the PDP candidate.”

The party, however, said the “freezing of the Adelekes’ accounts by an agency of the All Progressives. Congress (APC)-led Federal Government, a week to the governorship election, underscores the fact that APC is mortally afraid of our candidate and has been seeking ways to undermine his electoral fortunes.

“Such savage attack on innocent citizens confirms the viciousness of the Buhari-led APC administration to use any means whatsoever to subjugate Nigerians and appropriate power to itself at all cost.

“Does it not smack of political brutality that President Buhari approved the secret release of N16.6 billion to Osun APC to pay thugs to manhandle voters and rig the election, while his EFCC is unleashed to freeze the legitimate account of our candidate and his family not minding the collateral damage such would have on millions that benefit from the goodwill of the family?

“What President Buhari and his APC do not understand is that theirs is a den of thieves and that the leaders of the APC are frittering the N16 billion away.

“Moreover, the people of Osun state are completely behind Senator Adeleke and will freely vote for him irrespective of the machinations of the Buhari-led APC.

“The PDP therefore calls on the people of Osun state to collectively condemn this wickedness meted out on their son and members of his family and ensure that they use their votes to make a resounding statement against the APC by voting enmasse for their beloved son, come September 22, 2018. Enough is enough!”
