The national leadership of the People’s Democratic Party on Monday faulted the presentation of the party’s governorship flag in Ogun State to the senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu, saying the development was ridiculous.
The state chairman of the party, Adebayo Dayo, presented the flag to Kashamu in his hometown, Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State on Monday, a few days after the party’s national chairman, Uche Secondus, presented same to Oladipupo Adebutu in Abuja.
Kashamu told the gathering that the people have spoken; the courts have affirmed it and INEC has complied. He said party supremacy is not a licence for executive recklessness. Kashamu said his aspiration to govern the state will afford him an opportunity to continue to touch the lives of the people.
But the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement said the party pitied Kashamu for finally turning himself into a clown in his desperate bid to destabilize the PDP as part of his pact with the Presidency which is threatening him with imminent extradition from Nigeria over alleged international fraud.
Ologbodiyan noted that Kashamu never purchased PDP nomination form; never participated in the governorship primary or in any process related to nomination of governorship candidate of the PDP. He therefore, urge the people of Ogun State to completely disregard Kashamu as a clown and continue in their support for the PDP governorship candidate, Adebutu, who he said is already coasting to victory.
