Ogun Guber: Senator Kashamu Buruji is a desperate paid agent of anti-democratic forces working in cohorts with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to cause confusion, trigger violence and bloodletting in the 2019 general election and derail our hard-earned democracy.
Sen. Buruji is an interloper and impostor, who will soon face prosecution for printing and selling fake Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, nomination forms to members of the public, in violation of the provisions of the Electoral Act & the PDP constitution, which vest such powers only on the NWC.
Sen. Buruji will also face the law for conducting phony guber primary in Ogun state, with the name and colors of the PDP, an activity which only the NWC has the powers to conduct and which it had done after which it submitted the name of our guber candidate, Adebutu to Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
4. It is instructive to note that under the Electoral Act and the @OfficialPDPNig constitution, only the National Working Committee, and no other organ of the party at the national or state level, is empowered to submit a governorship candidate to the INEC.
We therefore urge all security agencies and Nigerians in general to note that Senator Buruji is the aggressor and directly hold him responsible for any breakdown of law and order, since he has given a hint into such inclination by his violent outbursts and threats.
