We need political soldiers in S/West to challenge Tinubu — Kashamu
As the country prepares for the 2015 elections, a Peoples Democratic Party leader in the South-west, Prince Buruji Kashamu, has said the party needed “political soldiers that can mobilize and organize in order to challenge our enemy”.
Buruji, who attended a congress held at the Le Chateau Hall, Bodija, Ibadan, yesterday, said the number one enemy the party has in the zone is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
According to him, for the party to reclaim the South-west states from the opposition, it must be ready to face its enemies.
He said, “As the chairman of the organization and mobilization committee, I believe in myself that if we are to win the South-west, we need strong people, political soldiers that can mobilize and organize in order to challenge our enemy. And who are our enemies? We all know that our number one enemy in the South-west is Bola Tinubu.
”And when you are not strong, tough and sure of yourself, you don't have anywhere to go if you have to contend with people like him. If we are ready to work, I am ready to go if you will stand by me. If you are ready, let us start with EKITI governorship election and make it a sample to them”.
Also speaking at the congress, the chairman of the PDP in Ogun State, Mr. Bayo Dayo, reaffirmed the support of the zone for the National Secretary of the party, Professor Olawale Oladipo, National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and President Goodluck Jonathan.
All the PDP chairmen in the zone called on the national leadership of the party to approve a date in January to organize their zonal congress.
The National Internal Auditor of the PDP, Mr. Adewole Adeyanju, said the party would overcome the current challenges.
