Crisis rocking Ogun state chapter of PDP over who becomes the authentic governorship candidate of the party ahead 2019 general election, is becoming more interesting as Senator Kashamu Buruji has called on the Inspector General of Police to hold the national chairman of PDP, Uche Secondus responsible if there is breach of peace, following the symbolic handing over of the party’s flag to factional governorship candidate, Honorable Ladi Adebutu despite court rulings he claimed were in his favor.
National leadership of Peoples Democratic Party led by Uche Secondus, had on Friday 6thDecember handed over party flag to Honorable Adebutu as a symbol of validating his candidacy as Ogun PDP standard bearer in next year governorship election.
Secondus, while presenting the flag to Ladi in Abuja, said Ladi was the authentic candidate of the party that he was elected at transparent primary and that his form was duly signed by him.
“Adebutu is the authentic governorship candidate of our party in Ogun state. He was elected at a transparent primary with his form duly signed by me as the National Chairman and National secretary respectively in accordance with our constitution and strict adherence to electoral laws.
Apparently referring to factional governorship candidate, Kashamu, he said he could not steal Adebutu’s mandate and that it is criminal to have printed party forms, screen and declared himself winner.
