Ogun Polls: Adebutu Endorses Akinlade, Asks PDP Supporters To Vote APM
The drama in the Ogun State over who will succeed Governor Ibikunle Amosun took a new twist on Thursday, following an alliance between two political parties in the state.
This comes as a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Ladi Adebutu, declares his support for the candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), Adekunle Akinlade.
The agreement was reached at a closed-door meeting between some factional leaders of the PDP and leaders of the APM in Abeokuta, the state capital.
The PDP factional chairman, Mr Sikirulai Ogundele, told reporters after the meeting that they have adopted the APM candidate for Saturday’s governorship election while their supporters have been directed to follow suit.
He commended the leadership quality of the APM candidate, stressing that Akinlade remains the best candidate for the job.
