While the resounding victory of the Ali Makarfi’s PDP faction at the Supreme Court is giving many jitters, some arereveling in the landslide political triumph.
Perhaps the two principal actors in the Ogun state political terrain from the foreboding tussle in PDP, are Sen. Buruji Kashamu and Hon. Ladi Adebutu. They both belong to the different factions of the party, with Kashamu on Sheriff’s side and Adebutu in Makarfi’s camp. Now with the pendulum swinging in Adebutu’s side, the stage is already set for the Baba Ijebu’s son to doggedly unleash his guber ambition, and at the same time put the likes of Buruji Kashamu and their co-travelers in the right place of no relevance they belong. Still savouring the victory, Ladi has been in celebration mood, moving from one end to the other and simultaneously formally intimating his 2019 ambition to PDP stakeholders in Abuja and back home in his state. His philanthropic and charitable gestures have also resumed a new dimension with lots of goodies and projects for his constituents and Ogun state citizens in general. With the political arithmetic now, Senator Kashamu may have lost in his deft bid to control the PDP in his state, because the leader of his faction is no longer sellable, AS Hon. Ladi Adebutu continues to get more attention as the beautiful bride on the aisle.
