Senator Buruji Kashamu has blamed Governor Olusegun Mimiko for the woes of the party in the November 26, 2016 election following the emergence of the APC candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu as Governor-elect of Ondo state.
He said “We told Governor Mimiko that after eight years in office, the good people of Ondo State would resist the injustice of producing a successor from the same senatorial district where he hails from.
“It is not that Jegede is not a good material. He is urbane, intelligent and smart. He would have probably won had he come from any other senatorial zone than Mimiko’s.
“We told Mimiko that the people would not take anything that would look like a third term for him and his senatorial district. He would not listen.
“Mimiko turned deaf ears to wise counsel, just like he turned his back on all those who helped him to power.
“Despite being the Chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Mimiko turned himself into Fayose’s puppet, allowing Fayose to lead him by the nose.”
Senator Buruji Kashamu was recently suspended by the Ogun state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) allegedly for anti-party activities.
