ABEOKUTA—A strong indication has emerged that former Speaker of House of Representatives, Hon. Dimeji Bankole will soon declare interest in the 2015 governorship election  in Ogun State.
Vanguard gathered that the  former Speaker is  being tipped by the Presidency to contest the  governorship election under the  People’s Democratic Party  against incumbent governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun in 2015.

It was gathered that,  the move was calculated to tackle the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state in 2015  because both   Amosun and Bankole  hail from Ogun Central Senatorial district.
Addressing the PDP members in Ilaro during  Ogun West Senatorial District stakeholders  meeting, Bankole hinted that he  may  declare his governorship ambition at the next stakeholders meeting scheduled to  hold in Abeokuta, Ogun central.

Bankole however, warned that it would be dangerous to assume that the party would win the governorship election in the state  on a platter of gold.
He therefore urged members  ot the  PDP  to  go back to  their wards and local governments  and mobilise the people.
