Buruji Kashamu, Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, has reacted to the official declaration of former Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel to run for the office of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman.
Kashamu said it would be “a monumental disaster” to elect Daniel as PDP National Chairman.

He was one of the major reasons our party lost in the South West and Ogun State in particular. It is common knowledge in Ogun State that over N300 million of the funds are yet to be accounted for and the case is currently with…
