In a shocking turn of events, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has told the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ogun State to desist from intimidating the opposition party, saying they are all children of President Bola Tinubu.
Adebutu said this on Saturday during the end-of-year party organised by PDP, held at the party secretariat at NNPC Junction, Abeokuta, the capital of the state.
This pledge of allegiance to the President and leader of the ruling APC by a PDP top stalwart has kept political watchers thinking about the new turn of events.
“This is not about one party; we have seen the governorship candidate of the LP here, Mr Shogunle, and even some members of the APC who joined forces with us during the last election, and that is why we have told them to stop intimidating us; we are all Tinubu’s children.
“Our party here is a party that preaches one Nigeria and one Ogun State. We are not campaigning here today but we must still speak the truth and speak it loudly. At a time, they said my offence was money laundering; they said I gave you money.
“Meanwhile, we shall talk when the time is right because it is my money that I am giving to people but that man, is spending government money; he will explain in due time,” he said.
The secretary of the party, Sunday Solarin, also said PDP is too big a party to be intimidated by APC.
The party scribe noted that the ruling party has been hostile towards PDP because of the party’s matter before the Supreme Court.
Solarin was, however, optimistic of victory, noting that: “The party actually won the election and that is why we are still in court and we believe quite well that the Supreme Court will set the records straight because it is a court of policy and there are a lot of policy errors we think should have given us favourable judgement at the lower courts, but we know that we are going to get the victory at the Supreme Court.
“We are not jittery over the Supreme Court judgement because we know that we have a good case. The judges at the lower courts have been dwelling on technicalities and we know that some of these technical excuses will not anchor on the justices of the Supreme Court.
“We know that once the Supreme Court looks at our case on an evidence basis and attaches probative value to some of the documents that we presented, we can have our way and we are optimistic that we will have our way.”
