ABEOKUTA — Chairman of Mobilisation and Organisation Committee of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in South West, Prince Buruji Kashamu has faulted the governorship ambition of  former Speaker of  House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole, saying  he is  not qualified to be next governor of the state.

Kashamu stated this yesterday, while receiving  660 loyalists of former President Olusegun Obasanjo who joined Bayo Dayo-led executive in the state and 3,210 from All Progressives Congress  as well as Labour Party at a reception held in Sagamu and Ijebu-Igbo.

At the events, which  were   attended by party leaders in the South West, 400 loyalists of Obasanjo from Ijebu-East local  government led by Sakiru Olujoye and  260 women groups  loyal to Obasanjo  across the  state  led by Remi Ogunjobi as well as 210 members of All Progressives Congress and Labour Party  defected to PDP.

The party chieftain while fielding questions from newsmen   accused  Bankole of attempting to break the legally constituted executive of the party in the state  for his ambition.

He also claimed that the former Speaker was  using the names  of  President Goodluck  Jonathan and national chairman of the party  to cajole  the people  in the state.

Bankole at a stakeholders’ meeting on Friday in Abeokuta  had been asked to run for governorship under the PDP to reposition the party in the state.

But , Bankole while reacting to the call by the leaders of the party in Ogun central, said that he was not interested in any group within the party, urging all the leaders and  members  to unite for the sake of the party.
