Senator Buruji Kashamu has eventually opened up on the defection of his faction in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Ogun East Senatorial District.
About 1,000 of his supporters recently dumped the
party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
However, Kashamu in a statement by his Media Adviser, Austin Oniyokor, said;
“I do not have any problem with any one or a group of people exercising their right to freedom of association but such must be done responsibly and not with elements of lies, blackmail and outright subterfuge.”
“Kola Akinyemi and his co-travellers should desist from dropping my name in their political prostitution and voyage of anywhere ‘belle face’. I dissociate myself and my genuine followers from this group of desperados. Their movement to the APC in Ogun State does not have my blessings.”
“It is true that politics is dynamic. If there is
going to be any political alignment or movement in the future, it is going to
be a collective decision with the buy-in of all stakeholders. And it will be
done openly, not in the less than the honourable manner that these characters
have done theirs”
