The Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party has announced the suspension of seven of its key members.

Affected members are Buruji Kashamu, Bayo Dayo, Pegba Otemolu, Semiu Shodipo, Fatai Adeyanju, Segun Seriki, Daisi Akitan, and Bowale Solaja.

Mr. Kashamu is a serving Senator. He has been fighting extradition to the United States where he is accused of drug-related offences.

The party said in statement signed by state chairman and secretary, Sikirulai Ogundele and Olabode Bankole, that the suspension was sequel to the report of a panel constituted in June to investigate allegations of financial improprieties and anti-party activities against the seven members.

The statement said the accused persons refused to honour several invitations by the panel to respond to allegations of misapplication and outright diversion of party funds.

“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,” the statement said.

“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.”

    Kashamu, who was Dumbo Jo’s campaign coordinator South West, suspended ? How time changes .

    • Charles

      He may later become Dumbo buh’s campaign coordinator south west.

      • Nigeriamovingforward

        Not in your life time.

      • Arabakpura

        Infact Nigeria is now full of Dumbos; hope you are not one of them!

        • Tunji Olarewaju

          Of course, he is

      • tundemash

        That is in the realm of conjecture what is not in doubt and a fact is he was Dumbo Jo’s campaign coordinator South West at the time he was being sought to answer for drug charges .

  • Bigtin

    Justice Abang oya over to you

  • luvnaija

    Will not be surprise if he heads over to APC

    • princegab

      That’s the natural route, they will kill 2 birds with one stone. I.e. become members of ruling party and their sins forgiven.

      • Burbank

        Like Bukola Saraki at the CCT and Kwankwaso, Nyako and Jaffaru Isa at the EFCC !

  • Nigeriamovingforward

    Dombo’s right hand man, how time has changed.

  • Charles River

    O tio, PDP a criminal party suspending members for stealing?

    • princegab

      Pdp love thieves, their anger is about ondo’s gubernatorial election.

  • wode

    Imagine the party that’s already dying still amputating parts of its rotten body. Anyway that could be a good surgery! Good luck to them. How else is it expected to be for a party that lived as if there was not going to be tomorrow?.

  • princegab

    These are the forces against pdp in ondo’s gubernatorial election. My guess is that, these gang ‘s sins against Nigeria will be annulled as they deliver ondo to APC. Pdp acted too late, tomorrow’s election will either be rigged in favour of Akeredolu or APC win by proxy via another party.

    • Burbank

      Either way PDP is history.

  • Comfortkay

    People Destruction Party PDP will never stop to make headline, now they are quitely saying to the seven suspended members go and join APC. I dey laugh.

    • Burbank

      Not quietly but loudly.

  • Burbank

    Kashamu Buruji’s, quick joined the APC today.
    Buhari will call Obama to give you a presidential pardon tomorrow.
