The Ogun State chapter of the Labour Party (LP) has challenged Hon. Ladi Adebutu to submit himself for medical screening to ascertain his true health status.
The party also called the attention of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Ogun State government to the status of Adebutu, alleging that Adebutu had been tested positive to COVID-19 and is being secretly treated by his medical team.
The party in a letter by its State Chairman, Comrade Arabambi Abayomi and addressed to the NCDC and the State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun also accused Adebutu of shielding his health status, warns that if something urgently is not done about Adebutu’s status, the State might be more exposed to Coronavirus.
The letter which was made available to Uhuru Times in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, reads, “It is crystal clear that Hon Ladi Adebutu and his political aides are deliberately sabotaging the Covid-19 intervention efforts of Governor Dapo Abiodun led Administration in Ogun State through their silence and flagrant refusal to submit themselves for test and non disclosure of the status of those that has gone for the test.
“It is now public knowledge that Hon Adebutu and his political aides in the three senatorial district of Ogun State knowingly, intentionally and wistfully choose to aid the spread of covid-19 surge by promoting the inconveniences, pains and losses associated with the Corona virus in Ogun State.
“At this point today, it is the 3rd day and 72 hours since the Governor got alerted about Ladi Adebutu covid -19 status. It is no more a rumour that the Medical Doctor who has been attending to him secretly and privately has been isolated.
“It is medically and officially acknowledged that corona virus takes 14days to incubate. This very alarming development ought to galvanize the State Governor into action on Adebutu Ladi’s Covid- 19 status immediately else we might have over 20,000 index cases in the next 30days.
“This has become a very dangerous and an extremely avoidable risk which compromises the good people of Ogun State”, Arabambi.
