Osun: How Adeleke Obtained Degree Certificate In 24 Days

The Chairman of the Osun State Chieftaincy Affairs Review Committee, Rev Samuel Bunmi Jenyo, has noted that the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke obtained his degree in 24 days.

Jenyo who claimed to be a personal assistant to Adeleke said the Osun State Governor obtained his Diploma Certificate in Penn Foster High School on 16th July 2021.

He further stated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governor obtained a degree from Atlanta Metropolitan College on the 9th of August 2021.

Jenyo revealed this on Friday while testifying before Justice Tertsea Kume-led tribunal.

The former Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress (APC) had filed a petition against the declaration of Ademola Adeleke as the governor of the State.

Oyetola and the APC are challenging the declaration of Adeleke as Governor on two grounds: over-voting and eligibility to run in view of alleged inconsistencies in his certificates.

Rev. Jenyo tendered Adeleke’s certificates, bearing Penn Foster High School and Atlanta Metropolitan State College.

He also told the Tribunal during the cross-examination that though he has never worked in any of the institutions purported to have been attended by the Governor, part of his responsibility as Adeleke’s Personal Assistant was to keep the governor’s personal documents, thus giving him access to his certificates and academic details.

The witness also said that though his International Passport does not show he attended Adeleke’s graduation in the US, he submitted that he attended the Graduation ceremony.

After the Cross-examination, Adeleke’s counsel closed his case.

Subsequently, counsel for PDP, Alex Izinyon (SAN), also opened his case and told the panel that he would not be calling any witness but would be relying on the evidence of the two other respondents. He then tendered some documents and closed his case.
