The Ladi Adebutu Democratic Organization has condemned the final list released by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC for the forthcoming Ogun State Gubernatorial elections. In a statement made available to City People Magazine, the Associate Media Team Head of the movement, Dayo Rufai stated that the emergence of Hon. Ladi Adebutu is a function of true democratic, and constitutional process as required by the electoral body.
It is disheartening to note that after we have complied with all electoral guidelines in line with the
Few weeks after, Sen Buruji Kashamu who was never part of the primary sat down somewhere and personally handpicked some names to represent the interest of the party in the state.
To push their desperation further, Buruji went to an Abeokuta High Court to seek for an injunction to force INEC to accept their own list. The injunction was hurriedly granted only for the Court of Appeal in Ibadan to set the order aside.
So, rather than INEC to respect the order of the appellate court, and accept our own list in compliance with the directive of the PDP NWC, INEC with their position, has now become a tool in the hand of APC where the umpire is now to choose who and who represents the party interest.
Anyway, we remained unshaken and even much more determined to carry on with our campaign to all the LG areas in the state. We are very hopeful and in high spirit that the final list which has the name of Buruji and his co travellers is just a temporary one, as Hon Ladi Adebutu and other party candidates will smile at the end of the day.
