The rivalry between Adebutu and Abiodun has been intense, with both men vying for political dominance in Ogun State. The 2019 gubernatorial election in the state was particularly heated, with Abiodun narrowly defeating Adebutu. The rivalry between the two men is expected to continue in the years to come, as they both seek to shape the political landscape of Ogun State.



Segun Adebutu is a Nigerian businessman and politician who is the current chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State. He is also the founder and chairman of the Gateway Group, a conglomerate with interests in construction, manufacturing, and agriculture.

Adebutu was born on February 2, 1960, in Iperu, Ogun State. He attended the University of Lagos, where he earned a degree in law. After graduating, he worked as a lawyer for several years before entering politics.

Adebutu’s political career began in 1999 when he was elected to the Ogun State House of Assembly. He served two terms in the House of Assembly before being elected to the Nigerian Senate in 2007. He served one term in the Senate before returning to the Ogun State House of Assembly in 2011.

In 2015, Adebutu was elected chairman of the PDP in Ogun State. He has since led the party to victory in several elections, including the 2019 general elections.

Adebutu is a controversial figure in Nigerian politics. He has been accused of corruption and nepotism. However, he remains a popular figure in Ogun State, where he is seen as a champion of the common man.
