The Ogun State Chairman of Labour Party, Comrade Abayomi Arabambi has described his purported impeachment by one Wale Ogunsi as a mere comedy, insisting that he remained the Chairman of the party in the state not minding any foolish and unconstitutional acts of the disgruntled elements
Arabambi stated this in a release issued on Friday to debunk his alleged removal as Ogun State Chairman of Labour Party.”
We in Ogun Labour Party say with all emphasis that Wale Ogunsi is not a member of Ogun LP rather he is the current ward treasurer of the Ladi Adebutu wing of the Ogun PDP”.
Arabambi said he had not heard in the history of Nigeria where a non Party member will ‘impeach’ a sitting Chairman of another political Party.
He said the word impeachment is alien to Labour Party, or how could somebody say he is impeaching a Chairman without first suspending such a person and later, remove him as a Party Chairman.
He wonder that now that the whole World is in serious health crisis, somebody in his right senses will be talking of how to remove a legally constituted Executive of a Party, surely such individual had no interest of the well being of Nigerians.
Arabambi said the paper where his purported ‘impeachment’ was written, had no official logo of the Party, which tell us that the ‘coup’ plotters had not been LP members.
“Why would someone have a desperation to become a Governor?
He alleged that Ogunsi is been sponsored by former Governorship Aspirant of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Ogun State, Ladi Adebutu, after he had failed to achieve his goal through the former LP Secretary, Sunday Oginni.
” The politically floating Oginni after earning suspension as the then State Secretary of Ogun LP, was adopted by Hon Ladipo Adebutu who purchased the State Chairmanship of National Interest Party (NIP) an already de registered party for him”.
“The story is clearly very straight forward.
Currently , Ogun PDP Lado group has its cup of troubles filled to the brim. He is confronted with a political intractable problems in the Engr Bayo Dayo arm of Ogun PDP who is firmly in control of PDP in Ogun State”
“Hon Ladi Adebutu’s political options against 2023 became seriously threatened by his undisputed Leader Sen Prince Buruji Kashamu so much that Ladi Adebutu had in the last one year been hunting for an alternative Party” .
Hon Ladi Adebutu is the engine behind all of the intrigues . He has expended so much frightening amount of money on this scheme and yet ready to spend more in multiples.
“Of course , I have to mention this , that a political individual who is a high class member of the Lado group was employed to make overtures to me to attend a meeting with Ladi Adebutu last week but I declined . The ones who are intelligent in the crowd of the people Lado bought for this unachievable project confided in me privately that they were just trying to make as much money out of Lado as they can before the scenario comes apart. They have come to see that it is going to be extremely impossible to hijack LP”.
“Labour Party in Ogun State is not for sale . The silly and unintelligent press release signed by a complete stranger to LP Ogun State is just exactly what it is , a misadventure”.
“All of the foregoing are backed with pictorial and other documentations”
“He initially settled on Olaposi Oginni who was a readily available tool but ineffective to help him convince the LP to allow him use its platform while unknown to him that Oginni was already working to frustrate the then suit filed by the 2015 Governorship candidate of LP and the Party at the Tribunal”.
‘Oginni knew he was already suspended but made up his mind as in his character to make enough money out of the impossible assignment . Of course , he failed very woefully”.
Thereafter , Oginni had to abandon his treacherous alliance to fully declare for the PDP in a well publicised event published by very many newspapers”.
While urging the Ogun State Governor to be wary of the antics of Adebutu in his bid to create crisis in APC for his governorship ambition, called on Prince Dapo Abiodun to “appoint Adebutu as SSA on opposition political parties to have his hand fully engaged”
