Ogun State PDP Candidate Turns To Adopt APM’s Candidate Today
It is a turn of events in Ogun State Governorship race as Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu-led faction of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has adopted the governorship candidate of the Allied People’s Movement (APM), Abdulkabir Akinlade.
This is coming in less than two days to the governorship election, Naija News reports.
The factional chairman of Ogun PDP, Sikirulai Ogundele, made this known today, while briefing newsmen in Abeokuta, after a meeting with Adebutu’s camp and APM leaders.
Naija News recalls that Adebutu emerged the PDP candidate after a long battle between his supporters and those of Senator Buruji Kashamu
While the national leadership of PDP had upheld Adebutu, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) recognised Kashamu as the party’s candidate, through a court judgment.
But today Ogundele said his faction of Ogun PDP had agreed to work for the APM governorship candidate on Saturday.
