Opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Monday alleged that Senator Kashamu Buruji has gone into a secret deal with the Presidency, which is threatening him with imminent extradition from Nigeria over alleged international fraud, to destabilize the party.
Senator Kashamu is the Ogun state governorship aspirant of his own faction of PDP.
Reacting to Senator Kashamu’s flag-off of his governorship campaign, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said the people of Ogun state are aware that he has pact with the APC in order to shield him from extradition.
The party describes as the height of ridicule, Senator Buruji’s purported presentation of himself as Ogun governorship candidate of the PDP for which he had to organize his own sham campaign rally, rented an audience and presented a fake PDP flag to himself, after the authentic flag had been handed to the PDP candidate, Ladi Adebutu, by the PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.
“Senator Buruji, in his forced hallucination, has failed to realize that Nigerians, particularly the voters in Ogun State, have seen through his antics; they know that he is not the PDP governorship candidate in Ogun state; they know that he has a pact with the All Progressives Congress, APC, to destabilize the PDP; they also know that he is a clown on a journey to nowhere.
“Nigerians are aware that Senator Buruji never purchased PDP nomination form; never participated in our governorship primary or in any process related to nomination of governorship candidate of our party or any position whatsoever.
“Those using Senator Buruji as their agent have turned him into object of public ridicule, particularly in his charade of organizing a rally to hand a fake flag to himself.”
The PDP urged the people of Ogun state to completely disregard Senator Buruji as a clown and continue in their support for the PDP governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu, who, the party said, is already coasting to victory.
