Daniel, Kuye, Kashamu To Tackle Obasanjo In 2015

Daniel, Kuye, Kashamu To Tackle Obasanjo In 2015

The crisis in the Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party may linger as there are feelers that the party financier, Buruji Kashamu; Jubril Martins-Kuye; and former Governor Gbenga Daniel groups may not want to work with the former President Olusegun Obasanjo and members of his faction.

They alleged that Obasanjo cornered appointments and other benefits from the Federal Government for his Owu people without giving any chance to other PDP members.

A former State Secretary of the Party, Chief Adepeba Otemolu, also accused Obasanjo of secretly grooming a high ranking officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps to contest the 2015 governorship of the state against the overall interest of the party members.

Otemolu said, “When it was time to nominate ministers, he (Obasanjo) singlehandedly brought Dr. Adesina as Minister of Agriculture and Ambassador Gbenga Ashiru as Foreign Affairs Minister. Again, when it was time to nominate a representative of Ogun State as commissioner in National Population Commission, he singlehanadedly brought a woman from his Owu town who is not even a PDP member.

“He did the same thing when he singlehandedly nominated Lola Abiola-Edewor for NDIC Board. He would ask party leaders to bring list of nominees only for him to discard it and compile his own.

“So, our position is, if he cannot better our lot, he should leave us the way we are. The ministries of agriculture and foreign affairs are two ministries that should benefit the party members and people of Ogun but the reverse has been the case.”

Meanwhile, ahead of the 2015 general elections, the party has mandated Daniel, Kashamu, and other chiefs to map out strategies for the return of the party to power in the state.

The PDP also charged Daniel and Kashamu to work with Senator Lekan Mustapha and a former member of the House of Representatives, Dave Salako, to ensure victory for the party in future elections in the state.

A leader of the party in Ogun East, Chief Agboola Alausa, announced this during a peace meeting in Ijebu – Ode on Sunday.

The party said the leaders should liaise with the former Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Sarafa Isola, and others from Ogun Central and Ogun West senatorial districts to accomplish the victory of the PDP in the state as well as its return to power in 2015.

Alausa said, “With a united party and front, we’ll be able to push out the ACN and take over the reins of governance in Ogun State. So, towards this end, we have mandated our leaders, Prince Kashamu, OGD and others to map out the strategies to achieve this. They will give us the roadmap for returning to power in Ogun State come 2015.”
