The Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke has reacted to a report alleging that the Governor has appointed his daughter and uncle as commissioners, AMILOADED reports.

In a release signed by Mallam Olawale Rasheed, spokesperson to Gov Adeleke and Obtained by AMILOADED Correspondent on Friday, in Osogbo, Osun State Capital, described the news as ‘FAKE’, reiterated that those who are circulating this news should have engaged in basic investigative journalism before publishing it.

The Statement reads; “The attention of Governor Ademola Adeleke has been drawn to a fake news alleging that the state chief executive has appointed his supposed daughter in person of Adenike Folasade Adeleke and his alleged uncle, Prof Maroof Adeleke into the State cabinet.

“There is no truth whatsoever in the report as neither of the two nominees are daughter or uncle of the Governor. Prof Adeleke was born at Ilesa and hails from Osogbo, the state capital. Mrs Adeleke is the daughter of Chief Omidiran of Osogbo Land and wife of the late Executive Governor of Osun State, Senator Isiaka Adeleke.

“We had expected those pushing the fake news to engage in basic investigative journalism if they have any altruistic motive. If however the goal is to malign the state Governor, the truth can not be hidden as the nominees are bona-fide indigenes of Osogbo Land.

“We therefore urge members of the public to ignore those merchants of fake news. No biological member of the Governor’s family is included in the cabinet list. Governor Adeleke is committed to fair distribution of appointments based on competency, spread and sectoral representation.
