The Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun state has suspended Senator Buruji Kashamu and six others. PDP said the suspension is with immediate effect.
According to the state party chairman, Hon Sikirulai Olawale Ogundele, is sequel to the report of a panel which was constituted in June, 2016 to investigate allegations of financial improprieties, anti-party activities and sundry reckless acts that are capable of bringing our great party to disrepute.
Other suspended party chairmen are Mr Bayo Dayo, Mr Pegba Otemolu, Mr. Semiu Shodipo, Mr Fatai Adeyanju, Mr Segun Seriki, Hon Daisi Akitan And Hon Bowale Solaja.
“The panel on several occasions invited some of the above named who were implicated in the misapplication and outright diversion of party funds to defend and acquit themselves of those allegations but they refused to honour the invitation.“Based on the preliminary report of the panel however, submitted to the executive committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ogun state chapter, we found merit in the allegations and hereby adopt the report and findings of the Panel which include recommendation to suspend the above mentioned.
“In the exercise of the powers vested on the State Executive Committee in accordance with the constitution of the Peoples Democratic Party the above name are hereby suspended from the Ogun state chapter of the PDP with immediate effect; their names have also been forwarded to the national secretariat of the party for necessary further appropriate disciplinary actions,” PDP said.
