Buruji Kashamu Emerges Ogun PDP Governorship Candidate, Retains Abati As Running Mate

Senator Buruji Kashamu has emerged as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the Ogun State governorship election following the withdrawal of Adeleke Shittu from the race.

Shittu emerged as the governorship candidate of PDP via the primary conducted by the Bayo Dayo faction of the party in the state

However, he has allegedly withdrawn from race voluntarily for Kashamu, who represents Ogun East at the Senate.

Confirming the development, Kashamu’s media aide, Austin Oniyokor, said the leaders of the party prevailed on Kashamu to replace Shittu to brighten the party’s chances of winning the governorship poll.

However, it was gathered that the party retained former presidential spokesman Reuben Abati as the party’s deputy governorship candidate.

“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,” Oniyokor said.

“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.”
