People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Senator, Buruji Kashamu has hit out at the party for giving out the Governorship ticket of the party to his bitter rival Ladi Adebutu
The Senator representing Ogun East hit out at PDP chairman Uche Secondus and accused him of attempting to set the party on the path of crisis.
In a statement , he said: “The desperation showed by Secondus is only typical of a mercenary who is hell-bent on delivering on the job he has been paid to do,”
Kashamu added: “His latest action was done in utter disregard to the Party’s Constitution and subsisting judgment of courts – from the High Court to the Supreme Court – which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has since complied with.
“It is a sad commentary on our democratic institutions that the National Chairman of our Party, Prince Uche Secondus, could preside over such a disgraceful exercise because he could not do it at the South-West zonal rally held on Thursday seeing the trouble such an illegal act could have caused.
“What is more, even if PDP presents 10,000 flags to Adebutu, it does not change the fact that the courts have pronounced the Engr. Adebayo Dayo-led Ogun State PDP Exco as the only party structure recognized by the law in Ogun State. It is merely ceremonial. It does not change the lists of candidates accepted, processed and published by INEC. It cannot change the verdicts of the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. It cannot also change the wide acceptance of our aspiration by the good people of Ogun State and beyond.”
