Adebutu sends message to Abiodun
Speaking with newsmen, Adebutu expressed concern that the festival was turned into a political rally.
He urged the people of Iperu and the entire Ogun residents to remain resilient in the remaining months of the tenure of the governor.
“In the next six months comfort shall return to the people of Iperuland and the entire Ogun people, we shall have security, we shall have good governance, we shall have peace in our State and shall have a system that is all embracing.”
Adebutu also noted that,
“Turning the festival into a political rally has deprived the people of Iperu a benefiting Akesan day celebration.
“This is meant to be for Iperu and for Iperu indigenes as a whole, but somebody has dragged it into one person single event and if that is the case, we can leave him to go and do his thing and the rest of Iperu will go and do our thing, one person can not be the entire Iperuland.”
