Former governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has distanced himself from reports linking him with the People’s Democratic Party in the state and its governorship candidate, Oladipupo Adebutu.
It will be recalled that there have been reports on leaked documents where Adebutu and Amosun’s former loyalist, Adekunle Akinlade signed a pact on the sharing formula of positions after the 2023 elections.
Amosun, in a statement issued on Sunday by his media aide, Bola Adeyemi described the reports as false and misleading.
He said he has nothing to do with the PDP, and that any report linking him with the opposition party is the handiworks of mischief makers bent on soiling his reputation.
The statement reads, 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 neither Hon Oladipo Adebutu nor the PDP in Ogun State.
“This story is nothing more than a 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 group of persons in the party.
“The public is advised to dismiss the report.”
