Reprieve appears to have come the way of embattled Sen. Ademola Adeleke as the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has confirmed that the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Saturday’s governorship election in Osun State, sat for its examination in 1981.

The sub-regional examinations body made the confirmation in its response to an order made on September 11 by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), in Bwari, Abuja, directing it to produce Adeleke’s result.

In its affidavit sworn to by Henry Sunday Adewunmi Osindeinde, a Deputy Registrar Head of School Examination Department, WAEC, said Adeleke sat for the May/April 1981 at Ede Muslim High School, Yidi Road, Ede, with Centre Number: 19645 and Candidate Number 149.
