To genuinely achieve a revival of Ogun State, the mission requires a grand coalition of elements from PDP, APC and other parties. Therefore it is imperative to build this coalition by embracing all people of like minds.”
These were the words of Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu, Member, House of Representatives and Chairman, House Committee on Rural Development while reacting to the rumours surrounding his meeting with some politicians at the residence of the former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba.
In a press release signed from his Media Office, Honourable Adebutu stated: “We are hereby constrained to yet again set the records straight concerning the deliberate misinformation currently being perpetrated by some mischief makers on the presence of Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu, alongside selected Ogun state PDP bigwigs at a meeting called by United Progressive Forum at the residence of Akinrogun Olusegun Osoba on Thursday, 18th May, 2017.
“We wish to state that the meeting was at the instance of the United Progressive Forum and Honourable Adebutu, as a responsible and respectful person would do no less than honour the invitation of such an eminent gathering of seasoned politicians and elder statesmen alongside some foremost elders of his own group.
Hon. Adebutu believes that only a grand coalition of tested politicians and experienced statesmen can dislodge the venomous behemoth currently clinging onto power in Ogun state, thus he will not hesitate to seek synergy and collaboration with people of like minds in his aspiration to liberate Ogun people from the shackles of misgovernance by the ruling APC.
Finally, it is our advice that those in the habit of spreading unfounded rumours or passing unsubstantiated innuedoes to unsuspecting public and party faithfuls to desist forthwith.
We are quite aware that Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu has become the beautiful bride and center of attraction to his admirers and traducers alike, yet we urge all persons of good fate not to play cheap and dirty politics with his soaring profile.
Hon. Adebutu is not, and will not abandon the collective aspiration of millions of the deprived Ogun citizens for him to lead them to the Promised Land.
Rumour mongers beware!
