2023: Why I Won’t Steal Governement Money – Ladi Adebutu discloses


… I believe there is a day of reckoning, and I have never wanted to take political power because I want to steal government money, but to change the narrative.

The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Honorable Ladi Adebutu, has disclosed that his passion to take political power in Ogun state was not to steal government money but to restore the nolmacy between the government and the governed in the state.

Adebutu said he is more concerned about indigent and lower class people in the state. That is why he would want to take a leading political position to solve so many of the problems

He explained that he had used his personal wealth to bridge many gaps for the people of Ogun state, yet he couldn’t feel it the way he wanted it.

“I have done so many projects in the state so as to bridge the gap in government by giving out transformers,empowerment programs, health care programs, and more employment opportunities.”

He explained that he felt that his money alone couldn’t solve Ogun state’s problems, but he wanted to take political power and apply a method that would change the narrative positively.

Hon.Adebutu, while speaking to journalists during a hangout with the Nigerian Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), boasted that he was aware that there was no money in the country nor the state, but he would validate ideas through the available resources that would encourage people to bring back money to Ogun.

“I know there is no money in the state, but we shall encourage people to bring their money back to Ogun state by what we will do.” He said, ”

He pointed out that he had prophesied in the past that states should be given autonomy to generate power on their own, which was now approved by the federal government.

He reiterated that his passion to take political power wasn’t because he wanted to steal government money like every other politician, but to change the narrative and make people know what is called good governance.

Speaking earlier, the governorship candidate’s running mate, Hon. Adekunle Akinlade, urged journalists to shun unethical practices in the discharge of their journalism duty.

Akinlade reiterated the need for journalists to ensure balance, fairness, and clarity while reporting the coming electioneering campaign and election proper.

According to him, “When reporting, give information that is balanced so that people can understand clearly.”

Meanwhile, the chairperson of Ogun(NAWOJ), Mrs. Modupeola Shobukola, told journalists to never run out of ethics in their reporting.

She added that journalists should take it as part of their responsibilities to read the code and conduct election reporting reports to keep them abreast of the forthcoming 2023 election.
