Kashamu to run for Ogun Governor under PDP, Reuben Abati as Deputy



Kashamu to run for Ogun Governor under PDP, Reuben Abati as Deputy | BellaNaijaOgun State Senator Buruji Kashamu has been announced as the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) following the withdrawal of Adeleke Shittu.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had previously acknowledged Adeleke Shittu as the PDP candidate in the state after a primary election conducted by the Kashamu-backed Bayo Dayo executive council.

Punch, however, reports that Kashamu’s media aide, Austin Oniyokor, has confirmed the voluntary withdrawal of Shittu, giving room for the senator to run.

Journalist and former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, has been retained as the running mate.

The party’s stakeholders, leaders and elders met and decided that it would be better for Senator Buruji Kashamu to run if the PDP wants to win.

Mr, Adeleke Shittu, who was at the meeting, also saw reason with them.

I can confirm to you that Mr. Shittu last week Friday signed the withdrawal letter and at the Senate he has informed INEC of his withdrawal from the race.

    Shame is completely dead in Nigeria politics,even the leader of boko haram can come out tomorrow to contest for political office and he will surely be adopted by some political parties. The most surprising part is that some Nigerian youths will still be fooling themselves by supporting these criminals after receiving peanut as campaign money.
    Naija i haillll ooo.

    someday, somehow, you will pay for your sin to the people and the government of the United State of America. You have all the time now to tattoo the images of all your loved ones in your brain. One fact remains weather you like it or not . You will die inside American jail. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
