The governorship candidate of the Peoples Redemption Party in Ogun State for the 2023 general elections, David Bamgbose, is dead.
He kicked the bucket at a private hospital in Abeokuta on Friday, according to his personal assistant, Oduntan Olayemi.
Olayemi said Bamgbose had complained of tiredness, and he was rushed to a hospital around the Olomore area of Abeokuta where he alluded to the Federal Medical Center for further checks.
He was subsequently put on admission at the Sacred Heart Hospital where he kicked the bucket.
Mr. Bamgbose, 54, passed on barely one week after his party officially presented him as its governorship candidate for the races.
At the presentation, held at Iwe-Iroyin Press Center in Abeokuta, he was hopeful about his party’s chances at the polls and talked about his plans for the state.
He portrayed himself as a better choice for the people of Ogun State“in all ramifications, coupled with the fact that PRP is a party that identifies with the masses and less privileged in the society”.
