Following their expulsion from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the lawmaker representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Senator Buruji Kashamu and the embattled chairman of the PDP in Ogun State, Mr. Bayo Dayo, have described their expulsion as the “height of illegality” which cannot stand.
Senator Kashamu, in a statement, said: “My attention has been drawn to the purported decision taken by the National Executive Committee, NEC, allegedly expelling me and the other chieftains of the Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from the party.
“It is clear from the ill-advised decision that the Prince Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee is lawless and undemocratic. No due process was followed as enshrined in the constitution of the party. This decision cannot stand.”
On his part, Dayo said he was yet to be formally notified of his expulsion by the national headquarters of PDP.
He said: “I want to state that my purported expulsion is a matter of rule of law and illegality. As stated in Article 57 (6) of the party’s constitution which says “any decision taken against a member who has not been informed of the charges against him or her has not been given any opportunity of defending himself shall be null and void. My expulsion cannot stand.”
