Ogun PDP Governorship Aspirant Joins The List Of Rejected Stones By Obasanjo Over Claim of Nomination Forms Bought For Him

Hon. Ladipo Adebutu one of the governorship aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has joined the growing list of aspirants who former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo had asked Nigerians to reject at the poll over their claim that people bought nomination forms for them to join the race for the 2023 general election in the country 

Adebutu had while featuring on a private radio station monitored in Abeokuta claimed that some leaders  of the State Executive Committee of PDP and hundreds  of youths  were  part of the people that purchased his governorship nomination form for him in Abuja based on the trust they have in him.

His words, "Ogun residents bought the form for me, they told me to move on, if you see the picture when we went for collection of the form, the kind of crowd that accompany us to Abuja was massive.

"The State Executives  and the leaders of the Party contributed money for me and obtained the form.
"How much money do Lado have, what does Lado know, these leaders, they are the pilot of this vehicle, we had an agreement with them that we should work for the betterment of the State.

Reacting to why he did not reject the offer, he said, "they saw many people and didn't give them the offer, you know where I came from, service is my heritance, whenever I am called for good things, I am always at the forefront, that's my story", Adebutu stated

It will be recalled that  former President Olusegun Obasanjo sounded it loud and clear to  Nigerians  to reject at the poll,  politicians who claimed that youths bought form for them.

Obasanjo was reactiing to the likes of former presidential candidate of PDP in 2019, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, erswhile vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi and Akwa-Ibom State  governor, Udom Emmanuel who claimed nomination forms were bought for them 

The former president speaking  at a colloquium to mark the 61st birthday of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo, said aspirants who tell Nigerians that some groups bought their forms for them should be avoided as they are only lying.

“Today, they are paying N40m. Some of them (aspirants) even said it is some youths who bought it for them,” Obasanjo said.

“In fact, anybody who would come out to tell you such a lie, you shouldn’t vote for him. Which youths gathered N40m? If you want to buy it, buy it and tell us. You don’t need to lie to us,” he added.

Also reacting to Adebutu's claim, a student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Nifemi Adesina said the politician has again revealed the kind of person he is as somebody who can not be trusted with the governance of the State.

"Imagine, somebody that we know was responsible for the purchase of the form, lying to us, no wonder Baba Obasanjo's warned that we should not vote for such a person
