The President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki on Wednesday said he was sad that Dr. Ademola Adeleke emerged from the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party as Senator of Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Saraki made this known on his Facebook page shortly after he had sworn-in Adeleke as the representative of Osun West Senatorial District.
The Senate president described‎ Senator Adeleke’s defection to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress as a result of mishandling of the re-election matters by his former party.
Adeleke had defected from the APC to run as the opposition party’s flag bearer in last weekend’s bye-election.‎
This even as the Adeleke danced again while stepping out of the floor with Senator Dino Melaye after he was sworn-in by Saraki.
Saraki, on his Facebook page, said: “I was filled with emotions today as I swore in the brother of Late Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke as senator representing Osun south. I’m sure that my late friend, his family, good people of Ede and Osun West Senatorial District are delighted that the legacy of ‘Guv’ can continue. I am sure my departed colleague will, in his grave, be happy and filled with joy today and always.‎
“My only sadness is that senator Ademola Adeleke is not coming in as an APC member. This is the result of mishandling of the pre-election matters by our party. I hope Senator Ademola Adeleke will very soon return to his natural fold, the APC, where he rightly belongs.
“I hope this development will serve as an eye opener to our party at all levels that the will of the people must always be respected. We all have a good lesson to learn from this.
“Once again, I congratulate Senator Ademola Adeleke and I hope he will live up to his brother’s expectations and further uplift the legacy established by their late father, Senator Ayoola Adeleke.”

Gone but not to be forgotten! Sad that once upon a life, His Excellency, (Senator) Isiaka Adeleke was with us in this wide, wild world of sin! Now, he belongs to history! Nevertheless, the comforting truth is that he has done well for his race. For this reason, he should be given the opportunity of a well-deserved rest
