TVC E. The Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Buruji Kashamu
has said that nobody can suspend him from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He spoke in response to a statement issued by one Sikirulai Ogundele who claimed to be the Chairman of the Ogun State chapter of the party that he and seven others had been suspended from the party.
In a statement issued yesterday in Lagos by his Media Adviser, Mr. Austin Oniyokor, Kashamu said it was preposterous that an impostor like Ogundele, who is standing trial for theft and burglary before a Chief Magistrate’s Court in Abeokuta, could claim to have suspended well-meaning elders and leaders of the party. “The purported suspension of a Senator and others who are members of the National Executive Committee by some impostors is at best a comic-relief of no consequence whatsoever. Ogundele and his co-travellers are better known for their duplicitous flirtations which border on the politics of bread and butter. They are a hungry lot who are only loyal to their stomach.
Today, they are in talks with the All Progressives Congress. Tomorrow, they are in talks with the Alliance for Democracy. Only God knows where they will go the day after. “Besides, their purported action shows that Ogundele and his backers are either strangers in the party or ignorant of the party’s constitution, or both. Kashamu added: “The alleged diversion of party funds is most laughable because it is common knowledge that I use my personal funds to keep the party afloat even when people like ex-Governor Gbenga Daniel and Ladi Adebutu left the PDP for Peoples Party of Nigeria (PPN) and then for the Labour Party (LP).
