Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Senator Buruji Kashamu, has assured Egba leaders that he will complete ongoing projects initiated by the outgoing governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
He spoke yesterday when he led members of his campaign team to visit the Balogun of Egbaland, the Ologuns, the Oloroguns, the Olori Parakoyi of Egbaland and the Parakoyis of Egbaland.
Receiving the team, the Balogun of Egbaland, Chief Sikirulai Atobatele, said he and his colleagues have had similar interactions with other candidates.
Kashamu, while addressing the leaders sought the support of the chiefs and traditional institutions for his governorship ambition.
He said if elected, he will be the governor of all the good people of the state, regardless of the level of infrastructural development in the state capital.
The governorship hopeful lauded the incumbent for its infrastructural development, promising to build on his efforts.
Reiterating his commitment and love for Egbaland, Kashamu said inclusiveness will be a cardinal principle of his Administration, if elected.
This, he said, was the reason Dr. Reuben Abati whom he described as a “son of the soil” was picked as his deputy.
”To demonstrate our commitment to inclusive governance, we have one of your illustrious sons as the PDP deputy governorship candidate. He is Dr. Reuben Abati. This is the only ticket that recognises the importance of the Egba in the scheme of things in our dear state.
“My deputy will not be a spare tyre. He is very learned and exposed. He and other Egba sons and daughters that will work with me will be my partners-in-progress and they will definitely protect the interest of the good people of Egbaland,” Kashamu said.
