Bankole’s 2015 Guber Ambition A Joke – Kashamu





The chairman of Organisation and Mobilisation Committee of the Peoples

Democratic Party (PDP) in the South West, Prince Buruji Kashamu

yesterday described the plan by the former speaker of the House of

Representatives, Dimeji Bankole to contest the governorship election

of Ogun State on the party’s platform in 2015 as a “joke.”


Kashamu who is also the party’s financier in Ogun State said there are

no fewer than 660 members of the group loyal to former President

Olusegun Obasanjo that has returned to the Chief Bayo Dayo-led legally

constituted state executive of the PDP.


He said that the current attempt by Bankole to by-pass the legally

recognised executive of the PDP in the state would not succeed.


A faction of the PDP in Ogun State loyal to the former minister of

commerce, Senator Jubril Martins-Kuye had over the weekend adopted the

former speaker as its standard bearer in the 2015 governorship

election in the state.


But the party’s chief mobiliser in the South West said rather than the

former speaker to consult the authentic leaders of the PDP in Ogun

State, he had been making strenuous efforts to secure the backing of

the party’s national secretariat and the Presidency.


Kashamu spoke shortly after over 3000 members of the ANACOWA

Motorcycle Riders Association, the Labour Party and the All

Progressives Congress(APC) in Sagamu and 210 others from the Ijebu

North APC and LP defected to the PDP in Ijebu Igbo.


He stated that the former speaker who had not been participating in

the affairs of the party for a long time should have consulted the

authentic party exco and leaders in Ogun State.
