4 Showumi expressed this belief following the Abuja Court of Appeal’s Consequential Order,  dismissing the ruling of a lower court over jurisdiction to hear the suit between him, the PDP and others.

5 The governorship hopeful noted that his campaign ahead of the governorship race would fully begin on Sept. 28, adding that his style would be issues-based.

6 Showunmi, a former spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation in 2019, said that he would be running a “new deal” that would transform Ogun if elected.

7 While reteirating his acceptance of party supremacy both at the national and state levels, Showunmi said that the primary election conducted by the Ladi Adebutu camp remained a charade and would not stand.

8 He said: “A political party is the creation of the law and what gives  it  political  the right to even claim it is a political party is its constitution and the grand law which is the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

9 “No legally created organ can be given the wherewithal to act as if it doesn’t know that it is a creation of the law.

10 “I actually don’t think we are divided, to be fair.

11 We both accept the supremacy of our national organs.

12 My position is that whatever it is they called their primary is a charade, it can’t hold and it can’t stand.

13 “The primary election that produced me as candidate followed all the extant laws of the country and in due season, they will definitely come to the point they have to come to.
