Tolulope Philips, the Labour Party's candidate in the Abeokuta South House of Representatives election on February 25, has endorsed Ladi Adebutu, the PDP's candidate for governor of Ogun State, ahead of the March 11 election.
In Ogun Central, according to Philips, the Labour Party would support the PDP in the state's governorship election.
The LP candidate instructed his supporters and residents of Ogun to cast their votes for the PDP on Saturday while meeting Adebutu at his campaign office in Abeokuta.
He claimed that the lack of a LP candidate for governor in the state is what forced this to become necessary.
He asserted that Adebutu had been regarded as the most credible of all the candidates for governor of Ogun and stated that he was backing the PDP leader to make sure that everyone received the benefits of democracy.
Philips, who lost the House of Representatives election to the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Afolabi Afuwape, said: "The Labour Party has no governorship candidate. What we want in Ogun is progress. Don’t consider Saturday; let’s consider the aftermath. I didn’t collect anything from the PDP. I’m doing this because I want to get the dividends of democracy for our people in Ogun State. "We must not allow our state to continue like this.”
Speaking, Adebutu appreciated the LP candidate as he assured the Ogun people of relief if he emerged.
The governorship candidate also disclosed that his mission is to build the Ogun State that the people are yearning for.
He said, “We want relief for Ogun State. We are after building the Ogun State of our dream. Let’s vote out those thieves. "All our people in the Labour Party, you will not regret voting for the PDP.”
