Senator Buruji Kashamu has come out to declare that he is prepared to support any genuine reconciliation that will reposition the Ogun State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as a formidable party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
He revealed this in a recent statement signed and made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
According to him, his battles have been against illegalities, injustice, and imposition because he has no interest in any elective position, including the governorship seat.
He added that PDP belongs to all party members, not just respectable national and zonal leaders so it is the duty of all to safeguard the party’s interests.
His words, “I have the mandate of all the altruistic leaders and elders of the party in Ogun State to declare once again that we are willing, ready and available for genuine reconciliation that will reposition our Party and 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”.
“It should also be borne in mind that the PDP, as well as our respectable national and zonal leaders, belong to all of us. While trying to protect our various interests, we may have roughened feathers in the past. But, that does not mean we cannot bury the hatchet and move ahead”,
“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”.
“all the allegations leveled against him by Dayo and Sodipo on various traditional and social media are mere rantings and the outbursts of confused minds. I will not condescend to their level”.
“it is almost 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. Afterward, 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. How then can he now turn round to deny the same Exco?”
