The Inter Party Advisory Council has described the meeting between a governorship aspirant, Oladipupo Adebutu and the 75 coronet Obas installed by former governor Ibikunle Amosun as an alleged civil rebellion against the administration of Dapo Abiodun.
IPAC in a statement signed by its southwest chairman, Arabambi Abayomi, and written to the People’s Democratic Party leadership in Southwest said the meeting showed that Adebutu is allegedly creating a political conspiracy against the Abiodun-led government.
Adebutu, a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun state and a former member of the House of Representatives had played host to the embattled 75 coronet monarchs in Ogun State with a call for constitutional clear-cut roles for traditional rulers in Nigeria’s constitution towards community and national development.
But, reacting to the visit, Abayomi said Adebutu and the 75 coronet Obas were allegedly aiming at overthrowing the constitutional Government of Dapo Abiodun.
The southwest IPAC chairman accused that the 75 coronet Obas of being used as political paws allegedly bankrolled by Adebutu to cause civil unrest.
The statement reads partly, “the attention of the inter Party Advisory Council southwest chapter was drawn to some certain news intercepted from multiple angles in some online medium with respect to the clandestine negative politically motivated visit of Politically portfolio Government Opposition G -75 Coronet Obas to Hon Oladipupo Adebutu. Information at my disposal was that the G-75 coronet oba request to visit the immediate past Ogun State Governor , Sen Ibikunle Amosun was vehemently rejected for security and Political consideration , his Excellency Sen Ibikunle Amosun equally told the G-75 coronet Oba that he can’t be seen pushing for any divisive means against his successor administration that hence thier vouryage to visit Hon Oladipupo Adebutu instead .
“We in the South West IPAC has all long considered the unethical , toxic and weird politics Hon Oladipupo Adebutu has been devoted to within Ogun State PDP as strictly internal and private to PDP in Ogun State and of no concern to SOUTH WEST IPAC but now that LADO has chosen to extend his political weirdness outside the PDP in Ogun State to escalate into troubling and threatening the wellness and peace in the social and political space of our politically very peaceful State.
“It has become the duty of Inter Party Advisory Council, in the interest of peaceful opposition politics to discourage Hon. Ladi Adebutu’s irresponsible ways in the name of opposition politics now threatening the tradition of fine politics of decorum and integrity .
“This negative trend as represented by LADO must not , shall not and can not be tolerated in the Gateway State. Hon Adebutu was widely reported to have played host to the unrecognized 75 coronet Obas yet litigating for recognition by the State Government in Ogun State.
“The statements credited to him as a representation of the Ogun PDP position and views for all intents and purposes depicted attempts and aims at rendering the State ungovernable and thus facilitate a great crisis in the State.”
Abayomi further said, “It is at this juncture very advisable for the true leadership of Ogun PDP to put every ounce of available political intelligence and diplomacy into trying to nip this political rascally in check immediately.
“Delibrate incitement and igniting civil disorderliness in this otherwise so relatively peaceful State is not in the interest of the PDP in Ogun State not in the interest of the opposition Political Parties. This very dangerous politics should be totally considered a great disservice to the memory of the past dead heroic leaders of PDP in Ogun including the late Senator Prince Buruji ably represented by the head of Late Sen Prince Buruji Kashamu Political dynasty in person of Bar Hon Taiwo Shote and the State Secretary Prince Leke Shittu.
“The duo are hereby advise to uphold the principle and tenet of the late Political icon so that the spirit of the dead will be at peace with them while those living will praise them for standing by the believe of late SPBK in making PDP a better and formidable Political Party .
“Further more and the present Peace – compliant leader in person of the most Senior Political office holder Rt Hon Abdel-Majid Adesegun ADEKOYA must as a matter of urgency call an all inclusive emergency meeting with Chief Segun Showunmi to salvage their party from imminent collapse and extinction while other members of the Exco who have not lost reason under the Leadership of Hon Dr Sikirulahi Ogundele must be bold to take urgent and proactive measures to arrest the negative drift .
“We refrain from repeating all the inciting statements of LADO in his said address at the conspiratorial meeting with the troubled Obas for the sake of decency.
The expectations of the majority is that rather than fueling crisis , Lado should have tried to diplomatically facilitate a way towards finding an acceptable solution to the matter at hand.”
“It is a foregone conclusion that a case in an ongoing Appeal in the Court can not in anyway be considered as won or settled until the final Court ruling. A toxic ambition can hugely hinder rational thinking.
“No competent and intelligent Politician ought to allow his ambition continue to give himself the image of a worthless addition to the political class , even if such Politician has failed in almost all the departments of objectivity , moral , conscience and principle . No one can successfully purse a State Governorship ambition with an embarrassingly high level of bitter and corrosive impunity bordering on recklessness and rascality.
“Though being sinfully rich doesn’t confer intelligence as a corollary , it is a matter of class and integrity for a man who pursues a Governorship ambition to avoid being too cheap and ordinary in the department of intelligence , else if such a third class unfit politician should mistakenly become a State Governor , even the animals in such State will be eternally ashamed.
“For the South West PDP Leadership to fully understand why Adebutu is threading this his obviously highly dangerous support for the floating and unofficial Obas appointed by the immediate past Government of Senator Ibikunle Amosun , some nine days to his last day in office was because the selections of these litigating 75 Obas were strongly opposed to, by the most senior Obas who are the four paramount rulers in Ogun State .
“Those Amosun selected 75 coronet Obas yet unrecognized by the Ogun State Government were the lilliputian political paws of the immediate past administration who are today being bank – rolled and courted by Ladi Adebutu to cause civil unrest.”
