The Ogun State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) on Friday, suspended Sen. Buruji Kashamu, representing Ogun East Senatorial District alongside six others over allegations of financial improprieties, anti-party activities and sundry reckless acts.
The six others were Bayo Dayo, Pegba Otemolu, Semiu Shodipo, Fatai Adeyanju, Segun Seriki, Daisi Akitan and Bowale Solaja.
In a notice of suspension signed by the state chairman of the party, Sikirulai Ogundele and Secretary, Olabode Bankole, the party said they were suspended for acts that are capable of bringing it into disrepute.
The statement reads “The Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party has announced the suspension of the above named with immediate effect. This 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.
”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.”
