There will be chaos if Atiku visits Ogun State —Kashamu
The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State, Buruji Kashamu , has said the
presidential candidate of the party , Atiku Abubakar, cancelled his visit to the state to avoid causing chaos .
Kashamu who spoke to our correspondent on Thursday , also said despite the controversy that surrounded his emergence as the candidate of the party , he would win the election .
The national secretariat of the PDP had picked Kashamu ’ s rival , Ladi Adebutu , as the governorship candidate of the party in Ogun .
After a prolonged legal battle , the Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favour of the Adebayo Dayo - led state
executive of the PDP in Ogun state .
Kashamu emerged the governorship candidate through the faction .
Atiku was to visit Ogun State as part of his nationwide campaign ; but the plan was cancelled .
Kashamu said , “ He ( Atiku ) decided not to visit Ogun State because he wanted to avoid having any problem .
You know the other guy, Ladi Adebutu , is still parading himself as the governorship candidate. We all believe his (Atiku ’ s ) coming can cause chaos
We had written to the police and the DSS to intervene so that there would be no problems . Atiku is a man of rule of law and the national executive has not been following the rule of law , that is why he declined coming to Ogun State.
Kashamu , while expressing confidence in the ability of the Independent National Electoral Commission , said he believed the elections would be free and fair .
Meanwhile the Deputy Chairman of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation ( South) , Otunba Gbenga Daniel , on Thursday said the failure of the party ’ s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar , to have a major campaign in Ogun State was strategic.
Daniel said this during a campaign tour of Ogun Central and East Senatorial districts .
He said He ( Atiku ) has been to Ogun State a number of times. It is a thing of strategy . I think we have done what we are supposed to do ; everything is rooting for Atiku and that is the most important .
The former governor , however , expressed fear over the call by the Attoney - General of the Federation , Abubakar Malami, for the postponement of the elections .
He said , “ That is quite suspicious , and I hope that this is not part of the grand plan to derail democracy . ”
