Former Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has distanced himself from any pact with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its Governorship Candidate in Ogun State, Dr. Ladi Adebutu.

Naija News reports that Amosun was reacting to media reports on leaked documents where Adebutu and Amosun’s former loyalist, Adekunle Akinlade, reportedly signed an alliance agreement on the sharing formula of positions after their victory at the 2023 polls.

The alliance agreement is titled, “The Alliance Agreement between Dr. Oladipupo Olatunde Adebutu and Adekunle Abdulkabir Akinlade in respect of the 2023 elections into the office of Governor, Deputy Governor, related elective positions and appointments in Ogun State, Nigeria.”

According to the agreement, the Deputy Governor, Ogun West Senatorial Ticket, and Two House of Assembly Tickets (Ogun Central) will be given by Adebutu and the PDP to Akinlade and his APM group.

After winning the 2023 governorship election, Adebutu and the PDP will concede seven substantive commissioner slots, 15 special adviser slots, 20 senior special assistant slots, 20 special assistant slots, five statutory board chairman slots, and five local government executive chairman slots.

Reacting in a statement issued by his media aide, Bola Adeyemi, on Sunday, Amosun described the report as false, claiming that it was aimed at tarnishing his reputation.

The statement read: “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 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.”
