“The frivolous allegations that Ladi Adebutu has been laundering his money, I don’t know how you can launder your personal wealth, that is the allegation against me by the APC; that I have laundered my money, that I have used my money to create empowerment for people that I feel compassionate about Nigerians that are in need, that I have helped but they should note, I will continue to help.

“ It was a dictate by my late mother to be of help to women and children. We have done empowerment programmes and we will continue to do them. By January 19th, 2024 which marks one year of her passing away, we will be having special programmes again to continue these empowerment programmes as we have done over years. But because these people (APC) lack empathy, they lack compassion for society, they trivilise and politicise everything.”
