Senator Buruji Kashamu writes INEC, DSS, Police over PDP expulsion
Ogun State Senator Buruji Kashamu has issued a letter to the Independent Electoral Commission, Department of State Services and the Nigeria Police Force following his expulsion from the People’s Democratic Party.
The senator representing Ogun East in the Upper chamber of the National Assembly has described the letter forwarded by the party’s national Legal Adviser, Emmanuel Enoidem as ‘fake’ and should disregarded.
“It is only the national chairman and the national secretary that have powers to issue such correspondences as stipulated in Articles 35 and 36 of the party’s constitution,” Kasamu’s letter reads.
“Thus, I respectfully urge you to discountenance the fake letter, as it is not worth more than the piece of paper on which it was written.
“The National Executive Committee could not have validly expelled me and others when there are subsisting judgments and orders of court forbidding them from taking any disciplinary action against me and the others.
“If they had taught through their ill-advised step, they would have realised that it offends the provision of Article 57 (6) of the PDP constitution.”
Senator Kashamu was expelled alongside Semiu Sodipo, Bayo Adebayo and Segun Seriki on July 23 for hobnobbing with the opposition [APC] during the Ekiti State gubernatorial election in last month.
