Late Senator Isiaka Adeleke

Former governor of Cross River state, Chief Clement Ebri has described late Senator Isiaka Adeleke who died recently in Oshogbo the Osun state capital as a political bulldozer and an astute administrator who gave his all for his people despite the resistance.

Ebri said Adeleke who became first civilian governor of Osun state when Ebri himself was Governor of Cross River, during his life time demonstrated all the traits and qualities expected of a charismatic grassroot politician.

“I am saddened by the sudden death of a friend and colleague Senator Adeleke. We were governors together and I have known him as a very astute and charismatic grassroot politician.

“Despite all the odds and resistance, he kept striving and searching from avenues to help his people and there is no doubt that he impacted immensely on his people as is obvious from events that have followed his demise.

“He will be sorely missed by Osun state and Nigeria at large.” Chief Ebri said.

Senator Adeleke who was representing Osun West Senatorial district in the Red Chambers died on Sunday of suspected food poisoning but an autopsy report has said that he died of painkillers overdose administered to him by a quack.
