The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ademola Adeleke, has revealed he didn’t deliberately miss the 2018 Osun State governorship debate which held in Osogbo, the state capital on Sunday.

He said he was “held up by the electorate in the places where he had gone to campaign on Sunday.”

Premiumtimes reports that the publicity director of the Adeleke campaign organisation, Olawale Rasheed, said while they were on their way to Osogbo, a community where they had gone to campaign blocked the highway

“To our surprise, while we tried to skip the small towns and villages as we made efforts to meet up, they started trooping on the road; As I am talking to you now, we are just entering Osogbo,” Mr Rasheed explained.

“We did the same thing at Ikirun, trying to avoid some villages, then we had a backlash from the voters, they insisted that they wanted to hear the man (Adeleke) personally speak to them.
