Hundreds of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), members in Ogun State on Tuesday embarked on a protest against one of governorship aspirant of the party, Ladi Adebutu, who was alleged of electoral fraud in selection of delegates ahead of primaries of the party.

Penpushing reports that, the protesters led by Taiwo Olabode stormed the party secretariat located along Presidential Boulevard, Abeokuta chanting protest song and displaying various placards to buttress their arguments against Adebutu,  some executives and leaders of the party.
Penpushing further reports that some of the placards have inscriptions such as “Enough of Ladi Adebutu imposition in Ogun”, Reject fabricated and fraudulent congress results”, Recognize the congress monitored by INEC”, “Stand by your words, no imposition of candidates”, “Save Ogun PDP from extinction as a result of one man”‘, “Iyorcha Ayu:  Save Ogun PDP from autocracy and dictatorship”
The leader of the protesters who is from Abeokuta South Local government, while speaking with journalists alleged that Adebutu connived with some executives and leaders of the party, to upturn delegates list affirmed to be authentic, in efforts to sideline other contestants for the primaries.
“On Saturday, elections were held around 20 local governments in Ogun State but the National Working Committee accepted the result of the local government whose Chairmen are loyal to Ladipupo Adebutu and disregard the remaining , that is the main point. Where the leadership of a party is unfair and unjust it is very dangerous for the party”, he stated.
“In any case, the national working committee are trying to disregard the result of the congress duly monitored by INEC and they are trying to forcefully announce the result a small group of people who in any case did not hold any congress”, Olabode added
“If they hold a congress, let them provide a video evidence but there is a group who held a congress monitored by INEC, DSS , the Police and the Civil Defense, there is pictorial and video evidences for this but there is another group who never held any congress but the national working committee is now trying to disregard the result of the well monitored congress and announced falsely the result of the other group whom never had any evidence that elections were held. The congress was held on 30th of April”,he said.
“The implication is Ladipupo Adebutu is trying to impose unpopular candidate candidate over popular candidate. How would a man choose 40 elective post in the party, Ladipupo Adebutu has imposed people in all local government particularly unpopular candidate over popular candidate, it is happening in Abeokuta South, it is happening in Ifo, it is happening in other local governments , that is uncalled for”, he stressed
“They are doing it in collaboration because when the national working committee came to Abeokuta , they lodged in Ladi Adebutu ‘s hotel , it is uncalled for, that is injustice, winning and dining with him. The national working committee, in my own opinion , they are doing the same thing. The state working committee is doing the same thing with national working committee represented by Sunday Sholarin , not the state chairman of the party”
“We are clamouring for our mandate to be accepted , the result of the election held which was duly monitored by INEC must be accepted , up till now , it has not been accepted and they have accepted others. Our result must be accepted and announced, our candidate must be announced to the whole world across the 20 local governments. Our result should be accepted by the state and national working committee”, he emphasised
