A governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State, Oladipupo Adebutu, has taunted Governor Dapo Abiodun, saying has six months left in the saddle.
Adebutu who said Abiodun would be sent packing after next year’s election, said the state would witness “good governance and enjoy peace.”
He said this while addressing newsmen at the weekend at the annual Akesan day in Iperu, the hometown of Abiodun and Adebutu himself, in Ikenne Local Government Area of the state.
This year’s Akesan Day – an annual festival in Iperu witnessed a new twist as both Abiodun and Adebutu held separate celebrations at different locations in the town.
Speaking with newsmen, Adebutu expressed concern that the festival was turned into a political rally.
He urged the people of Iperu and the entire Ogun residents to remain resilient in the remaining months of the tenure of the governor.
Adebutu said: “In the next six months comfort shall return to the people of Iperuland and the entire Ogun people, we shall have security, we shall have good governance, we shall have peace in our State and shall have a system that is all embracing.”
Adebutu also said, “Turning the festival into a political rally has deprived the people of Iperu a benefiting Akesan day celebration.
“Akesan day is one day of the year when all the children of the land get together to felicitate and thank God for life. We seized the opportunity of the day to do our contributions to the development of our town and our various individualities.
“Before today, we have always had a nonpartisan activity, but you can see the folly of today’s activity. Somebody because of your little mindlessness has turned it into a partisan event. This occasion is an Iperu event, but it has been turned into a campaign event for one person and it has been dragged into a campaign movement for one person.
“This is meant to be for Iperu and for Iperu indigenes as a whole, but somebody has dragged it into one person single event and if that is the case, we can leave him to go and do his thing and the rest of Iperu will go and do our thing, one person can not be the entire Iperuland.”
