South West PDP set to sanc­tion Kashamu, others

Daily Trust - - LAW - From Jeremiah Oke, Ibadan

The South West chap­ter of the PDP yes­ter­day said it will set up a dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee to sanc­tion Se­na­tor Bu­ruji Kashamu (PDP, Ogun East), over al­leged anti-party af­fairs.

A com­mu­niqué read by the Zonal Chair­man of the party, Dr. Eddy Olafeso, said the an­tiparty ac­tiv­i­ties of some PDP mem­bers re­sulted to the loss of elec­tions in Ondo, Ogun and Edo states.

The chair­man urged the Ogun State chap­ter of the party, which is the pri­mary con­stituency of Kashamu, to hence­forth do away with any­thing that had to do with the em­bat­tled se­na­tor.

“The zonal lead­er­ship also hereby con­demns and re­grets the ac­tion and ig­no­ble role of some of its mem­ber­ship that led to the un­for­tu­nate ex­pe­ri­ence and trauma that held the en­tire party down for over a year now, and pray that may such never re­cur again in our great party.

“The en­tire South West lead­er­ship and stake­hold­ers con­demn the desta­bi­liz­ing and anti-party ac­tiv­i­ties of Se­na­tor Bu­ruji Kashamu and de­mand dis­ci­plinary ac­tions against him for his roles in the losses of the party in Ogun, Ondo and Edo states,” he said.

The Chair­man, PDP Gov­er­nors Fo­rum and gov­er­nor of Ek­iti State, speak­ing ear­lier, said the Supreme Court did jus­tice to Nige­ria and not PDP.

Fayose said the PDP was op­ti­mistic of re­gain­ing power by 2019.

“We need a pres­i­dent that is hale and hearty. Look­ing in­wards, it is time to re­po­si­tion PDP. It is time to take de­ci­sions; if you have prob­lem and you did not nip it in the bud, the prob­lem will con­tinue,” he said.
