Court sacks Kashamu, upholds Adebutu as Ogun PDP gov candidate

Buruji Kashamu

An Appeal Court has sacked Buruji Kashamu as Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate.

The court also declared Ladi Adebutu the party’s flag bearer for 2019 election.

PDP spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan wrote in a tweet on Tuesday.

“Appeal Court declares Ladi Adebutu as authentic @OfficialPDPNig governorship candidate in Ogun State, sets aside High Court order making Buruji Kashamu candidate,” Mr Ologbondiyan tweeted.

The ruling by the appellate court nullifies the order of a high court which had earlier declared Mr Kashamu the party’s candidate.
