Senator Buruji Kasamu

Buruji Kasamu, the senator representing Ogun East at the Senate, says he has not withdrawn from the Ogun State governorship election holding on March 2, refuted the earlier media reports.

Kasamu reported that, he remained the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State and encouraged his supporters to discountenance the report that he had withdrawn from the race.

Speaking with journalists in Lagos yesterday, 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 further reported that, that was why the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had maintained that he was the governorship candidate of the party in the state.

Kasamu said the statement he issued on Wednesday was contorted, adding he did not proclaim that he had withdrawn from the race.
