“I’m not opposed to reconciliation in Ogun PDP”

A former senator representing Ogun East in the 8th National Assembly, Senator Buruji Kashamu has denies a statement credited to the suspended PDP Chairman in Ogun state, Engr. Bayo Dayo.

News Hub Mag! recalls that the embattled chairman, Engr. Dayo had alleged that Senator Kashamu is opposed to moves for reconciliation with the Ladi Adebutu faction of the party. 

However, in a statement personally signed by him on Sunday and made available to News Hub Mag! Senator Kashamu said he is not opposed to any reconciliatory move by the party, saying he cannot operate in isolation. 

He maintained that, when the acting party Chairman in the state, Hon. Samson Bamgbose and some leaders of the party informed him about the need to reconcile both warring factions, he told them to ensure all stakeholders were involved in the process after the congresses. 

The former Senator further explained that, he viewed the reconciliation move as imperative but with a condition that Ladi Adebutu publicly repudiate the three-year agreement he had with the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

He added that, instead for Bayo Dayo to embrace openness and transparency, he chose to sidestep everyone and went behind to betray the party structure and purportedly sold it. 

The statement reads, “On reconciliation, I have never opposed any reconciliatory move because I know a tree does not make a forest. But, having shown his hands, Dayo cannot preside over any reconciliatory move. He cannot even be part of it because he does not have the integrity to do so. Rather, it should be championed by those who have the trust and confidence of the two main tendencies.

“The National leadership of the party is in a better position to call everyone, hear from them and resolve the issues in order for the PDP to move forward in Ogun State.

“As a matter of fact, when Chief Dayo, Chief R.A Adenaike (a.k.a Baba Oloolu), Dr. Remilekun Bakare, Chief Kola Sorinola and the Acting PDP Chairman in Ogun State, Hon. Samson Bamgbose (a.k.a Imisi) came to meet me about the need for reconciliation, I told them that it was a good idea so long as they carry key stakeholders along after the congresses. I also told them that it was imperative for the other people to publicly repudiate the three-year agreement that they had with the Allied Peoples Movement (APM). 

“But, Dayo chose to sidestep everyone and went behind to betray the structure and purportedly sold it. This is nothing but a scam! There was no genuine reconciliation in his moves. 

“Reconciliation is a process. Parties have to meet, discuss and agree on the modalities and terms of settlement. There was no way he would think that just because he was the State Chairman, he could decide for all the leaders, elders and stakeholders.”

The lotto merchant, therefore, described Engr. Bayo Dayo as a bad leader and greedy politician without conscience, vowing to challenge the illegality and injustice within the ambits of the law and other internal mechanisms of the party.
