The Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, on Friday, celebrated the educational attainment of the party’s candidate in the 2008 governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, who bagged a degree in Criminal Justice in a College in the United States of America.
A statement signed by Osun PDP’s factional chairman, Sunday Bisi, said Adeleke demonstrated rare courage in the midst of adversities by going for further studies at Atlanta Metropolitan State College, United States of America, after court decisions on the 2018 elections that did not go in his favour.
The party further said Adeleke’s decision to obtain a degree was a great motivation for people, who desire to play a meaningful role in developmental activities at any level of society.
The statement read in part, “We are proud of the attainment of this honour and even more proud of the heartwarming recommendations of the college authorities and your coursemates. You have demonstrated beyond doubt that where there is a will, there will also be a way.
“Your choice of the Criminal Justice sector as a field of study is also noteworthy in view of the current state of administration of justice and general issues surrounding insecurity in Nigeria.
“With this additional feat to previous ones in the social, economic and political spheres, you are even better positioned to drive the process of growth in our dear state and Nigeria as a whole.”
