The Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Ogun State, Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu has once more reiterated his commitment to turn around the fortunes of the state if elected governor in 2023 for the benefit of all the good people of the state.

He spoke on Thursday during a hangout with the  executive and members of the National Association of Women Journalists, Ogun State Chapter, who were marking two years in office.

The ebullient politician cum businessman said he had proved this with his personal business which include a thriving ranch where he has over 3,000 heads of cattle, which are being rearing in a modern way.

He noted that this number was much more than that of some Fulani herdsmen.

NOTM  reports that the PDP governorship candidate said with this experience, he would invite investors to the state to boost its economy and create more employment for the good people of the state.

When asked whether he could borrow Ogun State money to better the lots of the citizens and governance, having said, there was no money for the state to go forward again, the former Chairman, House Committee on Rural Development at the 8th National Assembly, explained that  his personal money could not solve the problem of the state.

Adebutu who was accompanied by his deputy, Alhaji Adekunle Akinlade said, “The best way out for me is to address the problem, is having political power first, and use that to turn around the fortune of the state, by encouraging investors, I believe my emergence as Governor will attract investors.”

He equally reiterated that  if elected as next governor of the state, he would not steal government fund, rather would be proactive in ensuring that, the governed are well taken care of.

Adebutu who is an advocate of the local government autonomy stated that the fund and allocations of the local government should go to directly to them to ensure better administration and development at the grassroots.

He said, “Ogun State has no money to go forward anymore, but we will encourage investors to come. My personal money cannot solve Ogun state problems. What to do first is having political power, which I will use to address the problem, by encouraging investors and turn around the state.”

While talking more about his cattle ranch, Adebutu added that the PDP Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar could attest to his claim, as he had been to the ranch and saw the herd.

He said, “I have more cattles more than the Fulanis. I have a ranch, and I have over 3,000 cattles. Atiku Abubakar affirmed this when he came on a visit. I operate a ranch, and one of the biggest ranch, and nurse the cattle in a modern way. If you have time, you can as well create time to visit.”
