Kashamu to Adebutu: Let’s join hands to take Ogun from APC

Kashamu to Adebutu: Let’s join hands to take Ogun from APC

Buruji Kashamu, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun, has urged the party faithful to join hands to win the forthcoming poll.

Kashamu called on the Ladi Adebutu camp to work with him for the party to regain power from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Adebutu and Kashamu had been at loggerheads over the governorship ticket of the PDP in the state.

But the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) recently recognised Kashamu’s camp as the faction contesting the elections, after an FCT high court earlier struck out a suit against his candidature.


In a statement on Sunday, Kashamu said it is time for the PDP in the state to work together as one family.

According to him, “we all know that Ogun state is a PDP state. Unfortunately, the PDP has been out of government for eight years which looked like forever”.

He said notwithstanding the misunderstanding between the two groups, “it is time to look beyond the gladiators; lay aside our personal interest and prejudices and work for the PDP”.


“We believe that the PDP can build on the foundations laid by the founding fathers of our dear state and its current minders, and take it to greater heights,” the statement read.

“With the last judgment delivered by the FCT High Court, the issue of the list of candidates has been resolved. This has been further accentuated by INEC’s publication of the list of National Assembly candidates.

“In the light of the above, and with a high sense of responsibility, I wish to respectfully urge all our elders, leaders, members and followers to close ranks and work together in all the 236 wards of Ogun State.

“The mission of every genuine PDP member should be to win the state. Therefore, I enjoin all members of the party to work towards ensuring victory for the party. It is only when the party wins that our collective aspiration of having a better Ogun State can be realized.”
