Until his death, Mr. Adeleke chaired the Senate committee on capital market.
He was in the Senate for the second time, having first represented Osun West between 2007 and 2011 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.

He could not return to the Senate in 2011, after he was defeated by Mudashiru Hussein of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria.

He sponsored a bill to protect whistleblowers and security informants…”
