Prepare for your re-run in 2027, Abiodun tells Adebutu

The Governor of Ogun state, Dapo Abiodun, has said the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ladi Adebutu, should begin preparations for a re-run in 2027.

Abiodun stated this following his Supreme Court victory on Friday.

The governor who arrived at the Gateway International Airport, Iperu-Remo, from Abuja noted that all attempts to distract his administration have failed as the Supreme Court victory puts a stop to his political opponents’ court shopping.

“We hope our opponents who have been making a lot of noise about a re-run can prepare for a re-run in 2027.

“Now, this victory marks an end to this court shopping for adversaries and for us. It is the final victory in this journey that started in 2018. We will now keep our eyes further focused on the ball. All attempts to distract us have failed.

He pledged that his administration would now focus more on preserving its legacies, and that the people of the state will soon be able to experience the benefits of his administration’s policies.

“We will now focus on sustaining our legacies, the foundation of which we laid since we assumed office in 2019 and in the coming weeks, you will see some of the goodies that we will be unveiling for the good people of the state,” he said.

Abiodun expressed gratitude to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for supporting his political journey, his legal team, led by Chief Wole Olanipekun, national and state chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Abdulahi Umar Ganduje and Chief Yemi Sanusi for their support.

The governor also commended the Ogun State Governordhip Election Petition Tribunal, the Appeal Court, and the five-member Supreme Court panel, which was chaired by Hon. Justice John Inyang Okoro, for upholding the peoples of decision.

Tokunbo Talabi, Secretary to the State Government, attributed the win to God, noting that while the governor put his trust in God, the opposition placed theirs in money.

Chief Yemi Sanusi, the APC’s state chairman, also praised the Supreme Court for making sure that money-hungry politicians could not overturn the people’s decision.

Additionally, Kayode Akinmade, Special Adviser, Media and Strategy, , expressed gratitude to God for the triumph adding that those who put their faith in God triumphed rightfully, while those who relied on money were humiliated.
