The younger brother of late Isiaka Adeleke, Ademola Adeleke has emerged unopposed in the APC Osun West senatorial by-election.
His only opponent in the race, senator Mudashir Husein, a serving commissioner in the state was disqualified by the 5-man panel set up by the National Secretariat of the APC to conduct a thorough screening for aspirants against the June 12 primary.
During the screening process, three out of the five aspirants that picked up nomination forms as at Friday stepped down, leaving the duo in the race.
The panel frowned at the candidacy of Husein, who they said ought to have resigned his appointment as a Commissioner at least 30 days before expressing interest to contest for the vacant senatorial seat.
Mudashir has vowed to appeal the decision.
