Kashamu’s Emergence As PDP's Governorship Candidate In Ogun SHAKY

A faction of the Peoples Democratic Party which conducted the primary election that produced Mr Oladipupo Adebutu as the party’s governorship candidate for the 2019 polls, has said Senator Buruji Kashamu will not fly the party’s flag in Ogun State next year.

The  faction also expressed the hope that the Independent National Electoral  Commission would publish Adebutu’s name as the authentic candidate of the  Ogun PDP in the next year election.

INEC had on Sunday declared  the Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Buruji Kashamu, as the PDP’s  governorship candidate for the 2019 general elections.

However,  the Media Consultant to the state chapter of the  PDP,  Mr Afolabi Orekoya, in a statement in Abuja, said the national leadership of the party was already taking up the matter with INEC.

He called on the  people of  the state and well-meaning Nigerians to “disregard the wishful thinking of Kashamu who had been expelled from the party and who  did not participate in the primary process as provided for by the electoral law.”
