Mr. Ladi Adebutu who was produced by a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP as the governorship candidate of the party in the state had recently aligned with Akinlade following the judicial pronouncement that conferred legitimacy on Senator Kashamu Buruji as the PDP candidate.

Upon that Adebutu had reportedly reached a power sharing agreement with Akinlade under which both will share power in a government formed by Akinlade.

However, Ladi Adebutu’s father, Sir Kessington in a statement issued on Friday distanced himself from the agreement as he threw his support towards Prince Dapo Abiodun, the All Progressives Congress, APC .

“SIR KESINGTON ADEBUTU has distancedhimself from son’s political calculations saying, Ladi is on his own,” a statement issued by his media consultant, Princelyn Odunyie deposed.

According to the octogenarian business mogul, Ladi has lost his case in the court and therefore, it will be in the interest of everybody to rally support for another Ijebu son in the person of Dapo Abiodun in Saturday’s gubernatorial election.
