Though he has not commented on it, actions are being taken on the talks of the gubernatorial ambition of former Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole.

Loyalists are hitting town with images and narratives, especially on social media, branding him as “the next level” in who governs Ogun state.

Awareness creation posters and narratives of good deeds and achievements that posture him as a perfect fit to succeed Governor Dapo Abiodun in 2027 are being thrown up.

At the forefront of the awareness creation is Akanni Musbau who described Bankole as his “principal”.

Bankole was one of those who acquired the nomination form to become the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 Presidential election but stepped down and campaigned for President Bola Tinubu. He was one the visible figures on the campaign trail.

His active involvement, especially putting into play the expanded influences he inherited from his father, Chief Alani Bankole to join hands in negotiating the vast support that produced the groundswell victory for the President in the north transformed him into a stakeholder in the APC and administration of President Bola Tinubu.

Though heavily touted as a possible minister, he was not appointed – his loyalists believe this will in no small measure weigh in his favor in the hunt for the gubernatorial ticket of the APC in Ogun state for the 2027 election.
