Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Osun chapter, Soji Adagunodo has said that the party would reserve the right of first choice for Senator Ademola Adeleke if he wishes to contest for governorship again.
Recall Senator Adeleke was the flag bearer of the opposition party in 2018 when he fought hard against Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Adagunodo when asked if he would like Senator Ademola Adeleke to emerge as the standard bearer of the party in 2022, said what is my own? Why would I deny anyone as the party’s candidate.

The Osun PDP chairman stressed ” I have told our people that the Scenario in 2018 will be different in 2022. At the same time, I told them that the right of first choice would be given to Senator Ademola Adeleke, being our last candidate, if he is still interested.
“But if there is a clear reason that the PDP will lose the governorship election if he runs, don’t expect me to support that. As a party chairman, I want to win every election I take part in. I am not against and not discouraging anyone.
“They have been canvassing for this and many people in the party all can attest to it” he said.
Adagunodo , however, said he can not unilaterally take decisions in the party. “I may be the chairman but I can’t know the mind of all the members of the party.
“It is the party people that would decide who they want as their candidate. I have no say on this” he said.
