Senator Buruji Kashamu (PDP-Ogun East) has disclosed that he joined the Ogun State governorship race due to calls from several quarters urging him to lead the state.
In a statement on Tuesday, lawmaker stated that he was grateful for the confidence reposed in him and his running mate, Dr. Reuben Abati.
Kashamu said: “I have to accept this offer because I have received the representatives of various people and groups calling on me to run for the post of governor.
“I have been called upon by many traditional rulers and the good people of Ijebuland, our friends from Remo, Ogun Central and Ogun West to join the race.
“It is in the light of the above that I accepted the offer to run for the post of Governor of Ogun State and I promise to do my best to justify the confidence reposed in me and my running mate, Dr Reuben Abati.”
