The Senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu, has said that any candidate who picks the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, as his running mate in next’s year’s election, is endangering his life.
Kashamu also stated that Fayose stands no chance of winning the presidential electionn in 2019.
Fayose was recently visited by a former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, who had for long nursed the ambition of becoming the President.
It is believed that Atiku might have struck a deal with the Governor and persuaded him to be his running mate for the 2019 presidential election.
Kashamu, in a statement released on Tuesday, berated Fayose for positioning himself as a vice-presidential candidate.
“He is going nowhere. In fact, no reasonable presidential candidate will pick a cantankerous and inordinately ambitious person as his running mate.
“Any presidential candidate who picks Fayose as his running mate endangers his life should he win. Since he fraudulently took control of the party structure in the South-West, what has he been able to do with it? Nothing!
“He is fighting the political battle of his life to install another of his stooge as his successor, in the face of stiff opposition from within.
“In a couple of months, the forthcoming Ekiti governorship election would put a lie to his claim of invincibility and uncultured disturbance of our political space,” he said.
