SENATOR BURUJI KASHAMU SAYS HE IS WILLING TO RECONCILE AND WORK WITH AGGRIEVED MEMBERS OF THE PEOPLES DEMOCRATIC PARTY – PDP, IN OGUN IN ORDER TO ENSURE SUCCESS FOR THE PARTY IN THE STATE.
Sen. Kashamu, the PDP’s gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 elections, said in a statement Thursday, that he had the mandate of all party leaders and elders in Ogun to declare readiness for genuine reconciliation in order to move it forward.
“Let me also publicly declare that I have no interest in any elective position, including the governorship and therefore have no reason to oppose the ambition of any member of the party aspiring to be governor of the state because I know that all powers belong to the Almighty Allah. My fight has always been against illegalities, injustice and imposition,” the former lawmaker added.
He also expressed willingness to cooperate with party leaders at both state and national level to strengthen the PDP party.
‘’As it is said, ‘to err is human and to forgive is divine’. Henceforth, we will all be attending meetings called by the national and zonal leadership of our party in order to forge a more united front.”
Kashamu dismissed allegations leveled against him by the suspended state party chairman and secretary, Chief Bayo Dayo and Semiu Sodipo, describing those behind the allegations as men “ruled by the gods of their stomachs.”
He said Dayo and Sodipo had lost their powers to speak on behalf of the PDP having been suspended by the proper organs of the party.
“It is most ludicrous that Engr. Adebayo Dayo and Semiu Sodipo who are parading themselves as genuine members of the Ogun State PDP Executive Committee recently suspended each other at different times. While the Dayo-led State Exco suspended Sodipo on the 28th of February 2020; Sodipo and former members of the State Exco suspended Dayo on the 29th of February, 2020.’’
“Dayo’s suspension was even ratified by the South West Zonal Committee of our great party on the 3rd of March, 2020. Afterwards, Dayo’s fate was literally sealed on the 26th of March 2020 when he was suspended by the authentic State Executive Committee of our party – the same State Exco members that sat with him to suspend Sodipo in the first instance.
