Former governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has denied media reports that he had signed a political deal with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate in the state, Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu, ahead of the 2023 elections.
Recall that some media organisations had over the weekend reported that Adebutu and his running mate, who is an ally of Amosun, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade, signed an agreement over the sharing of political offices if they win the 2023 governorship election in Ogun State.
But Amosun, who represents Ogun Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, in a statement issued by his media aide, Alhaji Bola Adeyemi, described the news as outright falsehood.
He claimed that the reports were nothing but mischief to mislead the public and discredit his reputation.
“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.
“We wish to state that the report is false and malicious. Senator Amosun has NO AGREEMENT with either Hon Oladipo Adebutu or the PDP in Ogun State.
“This story is nothing more than mischief to mislead the public and discredit the hard-earned reputation of the former governor of Ogun State.
“We have stated before and wish to state once again, categorically, without any fear of contradiction that, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has nothing to do with the PDP in Ogun State. And he is not a party to any alliance formed with anyone or a group of persons in the party.
“The public is advised to dismiss the report,” the statement read.
