The Sikirulai Ogundele-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State has rejected Senator Buruji Kashamu (PDP-Ogun East) as its governorship candidate for the 2019 general elections.
In a statement by its media consultant, Afolabi Orekoya, the Ogundele faction of the party described the submission of Kashamu’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission as a joke.
The faction described the lawmaker as a man who lacked integrity.
The statement said, “The new scheme of Kashamu is a joke taken too far by a man whose character is completely questionable.
“This is just wishful thinking by Kashamu and it should be disregarded by party members and the good people of Ogun State.
“It is a fact that Kashamu is not a member of the PDP because he has since been expelled from the party.
“This is in addition to the fact that he did not participate in the party’s primary process as provided by the electoral law.”
