Senator Buruji Kashamu (PDP Ogun East) has lampooned governor Ayodele Fayose for launching his 2019 Presidential bid in Abuja on Thursday.
Describing Fayose as a joker and number one destroyer of the Peoples Democratic Party, the lawmaker added that he was highly unreliable in all purposes.
He is a confusionist and number one destroyer of the party because how on earth would somebody who agreed with other party chieftains that the presidential ticket of the party for 2019 should be zoned to the North, now turn around to start campaigning for the same ticket as a Southerner, to the detriment of the National Chairmanship ticket of the party already zoned to the area”, Kashamu said.
He said: “Lovers of our great party and politically minded Nigerians generally, should by this action of Fayose see him as the number one destroyer of the party and the most cantankerous politician in the polity who can at anytime abuse anybody and go against agreed plans at anytime.
“I believe that am not the only one disturbed by Fayose’s agbero brand of politics but all political stakeholders in the land including those who followed him from Ekiti to grace his campaign launch because everybody knows that he is going nowhere come 2019 but just exercising his right in a funny way as a joker.”
Explaining that the query issued him by the National Working Committee was unreasonable, he said Senator Ahmed Makarfi had made a mistake.
“I am wondering how I was accused of instigating crisis in the Ogun State chapter of the party while I am here in Abuja as a Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District doing my legislative duties.
“The query served me by the party which has been responded to, has no subtance in anyway but pure mischief and malice”, he said.
He alleged that Makarfi was surreptitiously planning to corner 2019 Presidential ticket and was doing what he can to pursue those who could challenge him from the party.
“In fact the December convention of the party may not hold due to Makarfi’s ambition. He is a chameleon pretending to have the interest of the party at heart but secretly executing his own personal agenda”, he added.
