The Campaign Organization of Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship Candidate in Ogun State, Hon.Ladipupo Adebutu has debunked the claim of Governor Dapo Abiodun that 5,000 loyalists of the party decamped to the ruling All Progressive Congress APC in Ikenne Local Government Area of the state
The Director General of the organization, Alhaji Semiu Sodipo in a statement on Thursday by its Media Director, Afolabi Orekoya described the claim as misleading and a figment of imagination of the governor and his supporters
Sodipo in the statement described the claim as illogical saying total number of PDP in the three wards in Iperu-Remo are less than 5,000 and that only one member who has been suspended for indiscipline joined APC
“How would any logical person claim that 5,000 people decamped from just three wards in Iperu? What is the total number of all registered members of the party in the three wards? It is unfortunate that this is the kind of leadership that runs the affairs of a great state like Ogun.
“Making the record straight, only one member from ward 4 who is currently undergoing punishment for disloyalty to the party and indiscipline; he could not conform with the rules for being of good character as provided by our party but found indulgence from their party, you know birds of same feathers will flock together”, the statement added.
“We have no record of any of our standing and faithful members joining any other party, it is just one of their usual lies and propaganda” Sodipo said.
Sodipo said further that the PDP is not bothered nor perturbed as the people of Ogun State are used to the usual lies and fake promises of this present government of APC by which they have destroyed and bastardized the economy, security and all other sectors.
The campaign organization however asked the Abiodun’s administration to redeem its promises to workers who had issued seven-day ultimatum to the State Government over the unpaid 21 months deductions from their salaries
