The Senator representing Ogun East senatorial district, Senator Buruji Kashamu, has accused
the Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose of been the brain behind the leadership crisis that has engulfed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) both at the national and state levels.
Speaking at a reception ceremony organised to receive 1,500 leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the five local governments in Ogun West who defected to PDP, Kashamu pointed out that Fayose was using his attacks on President Muhammadu Buhari as a subterfuge to cover up his tracks.
He slammed Fayose for putting on the toga of the leader or voice of the opposition, calling on members of the party, especially in the South-West, to hold the governor responsible for the party crisis.
“Fayose is only trying to pull the wool over our eyes in order to cover up his tracks. He seeks to use his rabid attacks on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government as a cover when called to account for his deeds in and out of office.”
“He is the architect of the leadership crisis rocking our party in the South West and at the national level. Let all our elders, leaders, and true sons and daughters in Yorubaland ignore his doomsday predictions and come together in unity and encourage the efforts of Buhari’s government that are geared towards rebuilding our country.” he stated.
Kashamu urged members of the party to desist from painting a gloomy picture of the present economic situation in the country, commending Buhari-led administration for cutting import duties on 173 items expected to boost industry and rejuvenate the small-scale sector of the economy.
