Senator Buruji Kashamu has declared that he is totally commited to end the lingering crisis in the Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A Chieftain of the party, Hon.Sikirulah Ogundele had accused Kashamu of being mischievous about the ongoing reconciliation process in PDP for his insistence on former governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel to broker peace between him and former House of Representatives member, Hon.Ladipupo Adebutu.
But the 2019 PDP governorship candidate in statement by his media aide, Austin Oniyokor described the comment as most disappointing from Ogundele who had at time benefited from the Omoilu group within PDP in the state.
The former governor accord to Kashamu still has huge influence on some leaders within PDP in various communities, despite quitting partisan politics.
Kashamu maintained that his commitment to genuine reconciliation is total, disassociating himself from the peace process led by the embattled state chairman, Chief Adebayo Dayo.
The Senator alleged that Ogundele was only afraid that Daniel would not support his chairmanship ambition to run PDP in the state which will be decided by stakeholders.
He described as tenuous the comment that Daniel could not lead reconciliation process having joined APC, asking Ogundele and Adebutu to also openly repudiate agreement and membership allegedly reached with Allied Peoples Movement (APM) hours to the 2019 governorship poll in the state.
Kashamu vowed that he would not succumbed to the cheap blackmail that he is doing business with political future of members, adding that he has spending his resources in building the party in the past ten years in Ogun State and South West region.
He accused Adebutu of using his governorship ambition and crisis in PDP to enrich himself through his father andcollecting money from the Atiku presidential campaign organization among other transactions.
Kashamu cautioned Ogundele to tread softly and stop casting aspersions on his benefactors and leaders to protect his political future.
