We’ve Not Picked Gov Candidate ~ Ogun LP



The Labour Party in Ogun State says it has yet to select its governorship candidate for the 2015 general elections.

The LP also said it had not zoned its governorship ticket to any part of the state.

The party last Wednesday reportedly declared that it had zoned its ticket for the 2015 governorship poll to Ogun West Senatorial District.

The LP State Secretary, Sunday Oginni, at a briefing in Ilaro, said the decision would enable the Yewa/Awori people to realise their ambition of producing the governor of the state for the first time in 37 years.

But the LP state Chairman, Olabode Simeon, on Monday in Abeokuta, said the party had neither picked anyone as its governorship candidate nor zoned the position to a particular section of the state.

Simeon, however, said the party would adhere to its constitution in picking its governorship candidate in the state.

He noted that although the party’s constitution was silent about zoning, the power to nominate an aspirant to the office of the governor rested on the state congress.

He said, “Let me say categorically that the party leadership in Ogun State has not picked anyone as its governorship candidate for the 2015 polls and will not do so without adhering to the party’s constitution.”

He, therefore, urged politicians interested in any elective position on the platform of the party to do so without any hinderance.

Simeon however urged the party supporters to remain “steadfast, committed and loyal towards the party’s quest to take over governance” from the Action Congress of Nigeria in the state in 2015.
