I’m still in court, Segun Showunmi tackles Ogun PDP guber Adebutu

A governorship aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Segun Showunmi, has said his case challenging the primary election of the party is still in court.

Showunmi said his case is currently before the Supreme Court in Abuja, expressing optimism that the court would rule in his favour.

The PDP chieftain described the party’s governorship candidate in Ogun, Ladi Adebutu, as someone who is not ready for real reconciliation, saying he would not support him.

He said the judgment of the Supreme Court may come anytime, stating that nobody could build something on nothing.

Addressing party leaders in Abeokuta Saturday, Showunmi accused Adebutu of a lack of mutual respect and poor human relations.

“I said very emphatically that any day the Supreme Court calls our case, then people will know that you cannot build something on nothing.

“I am committed to Waziri Atiku Abubakar. You are all witnesses that I’ve visited Adebutu a couple of times. I sent him condolences for his mother. I even went to his father’s house to sign the condolence register.

“Is the distance from my own house to Adebutu’s house not the same distance from Adebutu’s house to my house?” he asked.

He told his supporters that those who had taken him for granted would not enjoy his support.

While saying he is for PDP, Showunmi said the party would reconvene after voting for Atiku on February 25 to decide on the governorship poll.

“Anything can change tomorrow. In 2019 when judgment came at the last minute, we stood with PDP, they are the ones who are merchandising the party,” he stated.
