Adebutu’s Aide Dismisses Frivolous Claims on His Indigenship

Afolabi Orekoya, an aide to Ladipupo Adebutu, the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate for the 2023 elections in Ogun State, has vehemently denied any frivolous claims regarding his principal’s indigenship. In a statement addressed to journalists, Orekoya clarified Adebutu’s connection to the Egbas and condemned the politicization of the issue by Arabambi Abayomi, the National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party.

Orekoya emphasized that Adebutu’s recent celebration of the 92nd remembrance of his great-grandfather, Pa Alimi Adebutu, who was born, lived, and buried in Ijeun Akoni, Odeda Local Government Area, remains indisputable. He expressed bewilderment at how Adebutu’s familial ties to Ijeun Akoni have become a subject of contention for some individuals.

The statement rebuked Arabambi’s attempt to undermine Adebutu’s connection to Ogun State, highlighting the authenticity of Adebutu’s roots in Ijeun Akoni. Orekoya criticized Arabambi’s unwarranted remarks as baseless and urged him to refrain from misleading the public with unfounded allegations.
