Chairman, House committee on rural development Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu has denied reports in some sections of the media that he’s set to dump the PDP for the APC.
Mr Adebutu in a statement made available to Naij.com said the publication is false in all matters particular, there is no iota of truth in it and the suggestion or assumption can only exist in the wild imagination of the writer.
“We are not unmindful of the political undercurrents behind this false publication. We need to remind our people about the obvious missing links in the said write up; it does not add up logically that Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu who was elected popularly on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), holding an unprecedented overwhelming mandate of the people, did not join the APC even when there was hope of a successful governance by the ruling party, and it fails logic and reasoning that he will do so now that the party has demonstrated lack of capacity to govern,” he said.
Speaking further, he said; “Perhaps this wild speculation would have looked possible and plausible if the APC had shown compassion for humanity which is the hallmark of Hon. Adebutu's brand of politics, but sadly the welfare of the people appears not to be on the core agenda of the ruling party.
“It also needs reemphasizing that in his over thirty years in politics, having been elected into the House of Representatives on the platform of the Social Democratic Party, in 1992, Hon. Adebutu does not play politics of convenience.
"As a progressive politician, his brand of politics is governed by social Democratic ideals and ideology which are encapsulated in the social and economic freedom of the people and general improvement in the people's welfare.
