Senator representing Osun West District at the National Assembly, Ademola Adeleke has emerged winner of the People’s Democratic Party primaries which held Saturday.
The Dancing Senator as he is popularly referred to, polled 1569 votes to clinch the ticket for the September governorship election in Osun state.
Reacting to the news, which has been making headlines on many news sites, many have expressed mixed feelings.
Some say Adeleke is too inexperienced to vye for the seat of governor while others claim, it will be an interesting election between the PDP and APC.
Here are a few reactions from some Nigerians.
Osun's governorship election will be a vote buying bazaar! APC will spend federal resources + federal might while Adeleke will spend family's resources + goodwill!
Note: Don't be surprise if you see vote going for as low as N1k or N500, Aregbe have bastardised their economy!

Can APC match the popularity of Ademola Adeleke and the Adelekes in Osun State? Only the Adeleke family is a political party on its own. Goodluck to Osun APC and Osun PDP.

So, the only thing Adeyemi Adeleke is actually known for is Dancing? For the longest time I wondered if he had actually resumed in the Senate. His seat in the Senate isn't even warm enough yet and he wants to be Governor.

That dancing Senator Demola Adeleke is now the gubernatorial candidate of PDP should naturally be a walkover for APC, but seeing that we had/have pockets of empty heads like Fayose as state governors, APC can't afford not to step up its campaigns. It won't be a walk in the park.
