Ogun State Chapter of Labour Party has accused a former House of Representatives member, Hon. Ladi Adebutu of causing crisis in the Ogun State Chapter of Peoples Democratic Party because of his mission to allegedly obtain money fraudulently from his father, Sir Keshinton Adebutu.
The State Chairman of Labour Party, Arabambi Abayomi disclosed this in a statement issued and made available to newsmen on Tuesday.
Abayomi maintained that, Adebutu’s mission in PDP was not to win election but to use the crisis in the party to obtain money from his father.
The party chairman alleged that, Adebutu fraudulently obtained money from his father on the deception that he was pursuing some court cases and planning to sponsor party Congresses.
He reiterated that, Adetutu does not support the governorship ambition of Senator Buruji Kashamu in the 2019 Ogun State governorship election.
Abayomi however urged Adebutu to reconcile with Kashamu, nothing that reconciliation is the only condition that would guarantee victory for PDP in the state.
The statement partly reads ” Ladi currently enjoys obtaining money from his father fraudulently under the pretext of servicing cost of court cases and the planning and financing of fake Congresses.
“Ladi Adebutu wouldn’t want any reconciliation because records from the 2019 elections when Ladi Adebutu’s group merged with the APM and Honourable Adekunle Akinlade for Governorship election , by official records it is shown that by removing the total votes for APC in the Presidential election and separated from the accrued votes to APC on one hand and APM on the other hand , the fact emerges to show very conspicuously that can only boast of about 70,000 votes which if it had been made available for Senator Buruji Kasham would have boosted his votes to become 140 ,000 . This shows that any argument that Ladi Adebutu can go into the Governorship election alone without Buruji is false , very untrue. Ladi Adebutu alone on his own steam can never win the Governorship election in Ogun State.
“Hon Ladi Adebutu’s main mission in PDP is not to win election but to use the political scenario in the PDP to continue to fraudulently obtain money from his father , using every manner of dubious means in the deception that he is pursuing some court cases and planning to sponsor some party Congresses. All of these monies are huge sums at each turn.
“I need to remind him that the only conditions that can guarantee victory for PDP is the unconditional coming together of SPBK and LADI ADEBUTU just like in 2015. For anyone in Lado’s group who has an ambition , it would be wise for such individuals to make the journey back home into the authentic Ogun PDP thus strengthening the electoral value of Ogun PDP.
“The most reasonable and very realistic approach is for Hon Ladi Adebutu to facilitate the collapse of his group into the authentic Ogun State PDP, which is led by Senator Buruji Kashamu”.
