The west end of Ogun State is no doubt in real contention for the 2019 governorship position but things has fallen apart between one of their own Gboyega Nasir Isiaka (GNI) and money bag politician from Ijebu, Buruji Kashamu.
The ‘Ogun West Agenda’ which the incumbent governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has pledged his support is almost on the lips of all grassroots politicians in the state.
But the breakup between a two time contestant, Gboyega Nasir Isiaka and Senator Buruji Kashamu may become a stumbling block against the district’s long time agitation in the next political calculation and may also be a huge advantage to the ruling party-APC.
Reports emanating from political circuits revealed “Senator Buruji Kashamu did not only send Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka packing from his political nest but battle ready to forestall the much clamored Ogun West Agenda with Mr. Segun Seriki, his latest anointed candidate from Ijebu, the eastern part of the state.”
Newsheadline247 understands that the Ijebu politico-generalissimo is still struggling hard to retain his grip on the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state but may have squelched his ambition of giving a shot at the state’s highest position.
Fresh information has it that “the embattled senator may have thrown weight behind his newest political jewel, Segun Seriki.”
Seriki on the order of Senator Kashamu went to Ota, the stronghold of Ogun West on 29 June, 2017 to declare his ambition, a move which is said to have led to political uproar in the ancient town and consequently led to killing of a young man and several others injured.

Further digs also reveal that Seriki’s candidature within the Omo Ilu structure owned by Kasahmu is yet to become “deeply” rooted.
