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.
