Send Kashamu Away Obasanjo Writes Chairman! Meanwhile I Am No Longer A Member Of PDP He Says


It’s still the season of letters and the letters won’t stop
rolling in. The latest one is a letter wriiten to PDP National chairman, Alhaji
Bamanga Tukur by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo asking him to let the
party disassociate themselves from a criminal like Buruji Kashamu who is still wanted
in the State. It is shameful that he has a position in the party is my zone,
Obasanjo said. Read the 3-paragraph letter after the cut.

Dear Chairman,
“While I believe that a good and truly national political
party must be a microcosm of the nation in its membership, made up of all sorts
of characters from near-saints to near-satan, I also believe that on no account
should a known habitual criminal that is wanted abroad to face criminal charges
levelled against him be extolled as a political leader in a respectable and
wholesome nation-building political party.
“ Buruji Kashamu has been so extolled in PDP in South-West
geo-political zone which I personally find unsavoury. Politics played by any
national political party must have morality, decency, discipline, principles
and leadership examples as cardinal practices of the party. I have attached
here recent documents that clearly indicate that your extolled PDP Zonal Leader
in the South-West zone of Nigeria and an indigene of Ogun State is, to say the
least, not a credit to the party as a member, let alone being a zonal leader.
“Since I stick in my practice of party politics to the
hallowed and cherished principles enunciated above, I take this opportunity to
let you know that while I continue to remain a card-carrying member of PDP, I
cannot and I will not subscribe to a wanted habitual criminal being installed
as my zonal leader in the party; a criminal for whom extradition has been
requested by the US government. In the meantime, I will consider withdrawing my
activity with PDP at local, state, zonal and national levels until the
anomalous and shameful situation is corrected.”
Thank you.
Yours Sincerely,

Olusegun Obasanjo
