Ogun PDP gov: Kasamu Denies Withdrawing for Adebutu


The senator representing Ogun East at the Senate, Buruji Kasamu, says he has not withdrawn from the Ogun State governorship election holding on March 2, contrary to earlier media reports.

He said he remained the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State and urged his supporters to discountenance the report that he had withdrawn from the race.

Speaking with journalists in Lagos on Saturday, Kasamu said, “I have never issued any statement that I stepped down for Adebutu. What I said was we should all join hands and work together for the victory of the party. If the court rules that Ladi is the candidate eventually, I will work for him and if the court upholds my victory, I expect him to work for me. But the most important thing is that we should all work together for the victory of the PDP.”

He said was why the Independent National Electoral Commission had maintained that he was the governorship candidate of the party in the state. Kasamu  said the statement he issued on Wednesday was twisted, adding he did not announce that he had withdrawn from the race.
