The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, is no longer coming to Ogun State.

The governorship candidate of the party in Ogun State, Buruji Kashamu, said Atiku cancelled his visit to the state to avoid causing chaos.

Atiku was to visit Ogun State as part of his nationwide campaign; but the plan was cancelled.

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.

He 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.”
