According to Sahara Reporteres, Adesiyan also expressed regret for not flogging Adeleke like a baby during a stakeholders meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, with the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Osogbo this year during run-off to the PDP primaries in the state.
Adeleke had earlier alleged that Adesiyan, the Osun State PDP governorship candidate, Senator Christopher Iyiola Omisore and a retired Customs officer, Mr. Sogo Agboola, beat him at a function a day before the state PDP governorship primaries, in which he planned to run.
Speaking to newsmen at the PDP state secretariat, Gbongan Road, Osogbo at the weekend, Adesiyan swore by the Quran that he never attacked the former governor, saying he was frustrated by Adeleke and his supporters at the event but remained calm despite all intimidation.
“My regret was that I did not beat him as he claimed I did. If I had not been a minister, I would have flogged him like a baby. You know that he could not withstand one blow. You know Adeleke is sick; maybe he would have died that day.
“It was Sogo Agboola that gave Adeleke a dirty slap when he tried to caution him from being violent and he gave Sogo an elbow jerk, which Sogo quickly returned with a dirty resounding slap. I thought he was tough but he ran away immediately. He is lying if he says Omisore and I beat him,” he said.
Adesiyan who described Adeleke as liar, vowed to fight him anytime they meet.
“I will one day leave office as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and anytime I leave office, I will fight Adeleke,” he said.
