The former governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, has debunked rumours of his involvement in a political deal with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate, Oladipupo Adebutu.
Amosun, an All Progressives Congress (APC) senator representing Ogun Central, made this know in a statement by his spokesman, Bola Adeyemi, on Sunday, 25th September, 2022.
The senator was reacting to reports alleging that his former loyalist, Adekunle Akinlade, and Adebutu have signed a pact to share positions if they win the 2023 gubernatorial election in the state.
“The attention of Senator Ibikunle Amosun has been drawn to media reports, claiming that he has entered into a political deal with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State and Hon Oladipo Adebutu.” the statement read
According to Amosun, he has nothing to do with “the PDP in Ogun State and he is not a party to any alliance formed with anyone or group of persons in the party.”
The former governor claimed that the report is false and malicious and urged the general public to dismiss it.
He described the report as mischief to mislead the public and discredit his hard-earned reputation.
