The senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Buruji Kashamu, has stated that the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun has transformed the central senatorial district of Ogun State to a small Paris during his years as governor.
While vowing that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in Ogun State come 2019, he harped on the need for someone from Ogun East to be elected as governor to turn Ijebu land to small London.
Kashamu maintained that the PDP would zone its governorship ticket to Ogun East Senatorial District contrary to the decision of the APC to choose its candidate from Ogun West.
The senator stated this yesterday at a PDP stakeholders’ meeting held in Ijebu-Igbo area of Ijebu-North Local Government Area of the state.
According to him, “The time has come for an Ijebu indigene to assume the governorship position in Ogun State. You should all be prepared just as we are prepared.
“At home and abroad, go and cooperate; you all can see what Amosun is doing at the central, you see how he has turned the central Senatorial district to small Paris; let us also strive to turn Ijebu to a small Paris.
“You all can see what Governor Amosun has done in Ogun central, how he developed the place and turned it into a small Paris.
“The time is here for us to put our own son there, who will turn Ijebu into a small London just like Abeokuta.”
