Nigeria’s main opposition party, PDP, has claimed that one of its senators, Buruji Kashamu is working for the ruling APC.
The party noted that Kashamu is an interloper and impostor who is trying to sabotage the party’s efforts in the South West of Ogun.
“Senator Buruji Kashamu is a desperate paid agent of anti-democratic forces working in cohorts with the APC to cause confusion, trigger violence and bloodletting in the 2019 general election and derail our hard-earned democracy,” PDP said in a statement.
Disputing the outcome of the Ogun governorship primary, the PDP explained that Kashamu foiled the efforts of the National Working Committee.
“Sen. Kashamu is an interloper and impostor, who will soon face prosecution for printing and selling fake PDP nomination forms to members of the public, in violation of the provisions of the Electoral Act and the PDP constitution, which vest such powers only on the NWC.
“Sen. Kashamu will also face the law for conducting phony guber primary in Ogun state, with the name & colors of the PDP, an activity which only the NWC has the powers to conduct & which it had done after which it submitted the name of our guber candidate, Ladi Adebutu to INEC.
“It is instructive to note that under the Electoral Act and the PDP constitution, only the National Working Committee, and no other organ of the party at the national or state level, is empowered to submit a governorship candidate to INEC.
“We therefore urge all security agencies and Nigerians in general to note that Senator Buruji Kashamu is the aggressor and directly hold him responsible for any breakdown of law and order, since he has given a hint into such inclination by his violent outbursts and threats,” the statement said.
