Kashamu says Fayose talks too much because he has ‘mouth diarrhea’

A Peoples Democratic Party senator representing Ogun-East senatorial district, Buruji Kashamu, has described Governor Ayodele Fayose as a “depressed loudmouth” who is suffering from “mouth diarrhea.”

Fayose had at a PDP stakeholders’ meeting in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, described Kashamu as a ‘blackleg” and alleged that he, along with the ousted national chairman of the party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, conspired and worked against the interest of the PDP.

He also said that Kashamu was responsible for the challenges confronting the party in the South-West and demanded that he be expelled from the PDP.

At the meeting of the stakeholders were PDP leaders from Osun, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Lagos and Ekiti states.

But in his response, Kashamu said that Fayose had already been declared a “persona non grata” and that those with him at the meeting in Ibadan are “impostors parading themselves as leaders and the South-West zonal executives of our party.”

Kashamu, who stated this in a statement on Tuesday in reply to Fayose, added that he was not perturbed byvbeing expelled from PDP because before joining politics he had already made a name and that he will continue to be relevant in and out of party politics.

“Ordinarily, I would not have dignified Fayose with a response since everybody knows him as a depressed loudmouth who is suffering from what the legendary Chief Gani Fawehinmi would describe as ‘mouth diarrhea’. He is nothing but an opportunist and a political scavenger whose night time will soon come.

“Fayose wants to be the ‘alpha and omega’ of the PDP in the south-west, whether by hook or crook. But he forgets that leadership is not compelled; it is earned. And he does not have what it takes to lead the PDP even in Ekiti state, let alone the south-west. For now, he can only aspire and pretend to the leadership. In a couple of months, the Pharaoh that we see today, we shall see him no more,” Kashamu said.

Continuing he said, “The truth is: besides the illegality of their so-called resolutions, I do not need the association of Fayose and his cohorts.

“It is Fayose and his gang that should be avoided by our people. They should run from him for his ignoble role in the N13.5 billion arms funds scandal and for setting our party and region on a collision course with the rest of the country. He has since been declared a persona non grata and unfit among reasonable and right-thinking members of the society.

“Besides, their action shows that Fayose and his minions are either strangers in the party or ignorant of the party’s constitution, or both. Otherwise, they would have known that article 57 (7) of the constitution of PDP states, ‘notwithstanding any other provision relating to discipline, no Executive Committee at any level, except the national executive committee, shall entertain any question of discipline as may relate or concern a member of the national executive committee, deputy governors or members of the national assembly.’

“In a ruling delivered in suit no. FHC/L/CS/605/2016 on the 17th of May, 2016, the Federal High Court, Lagos, specifically nullified the jamboree they held in Akure which they called the South-West zonal congress. Till date, the order has neither been set aside nor upturned on appeal”, Kashamu argued.
