"His anti-depressant drugs can no longer contain him" –Senator Kashamu mocks Governor Fayose presidential declaration

60 secs Minimum - 8 mins Maximum Read

Senator Buruji Kashamu who represents Ogun East Senatorial district in

the Senate and a member of PDP, says yesterday's presidential

declaration by Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, shows that the

anti-depressants that the governor takes can no longer contain him.



In a statement released last night, Kashamu said that Fayose is aware

that the party had zoned the presidential slot for the 2019 election

to the North and that going to the party's decision is an anti-party

activity and that Fayose must be given a query by the party. He

alleged that Fayose is confused and is desperate for power.



"Fayose seeks to further widen the ethnic divide in our country, cause

resentment against our great party and tragically bring the party into

disrepute. Although his so-called declaration is of no political

consequence whatsoever, it is antithetical to the mood of the party

and nation that someone who claims to be a party man could go against

the decision of the party to zone the presidency to the north. By

2019, the south would have had the presidency for 14 of Nigeria's 20

years democratic rule since 1999, with a southerner ruling for two

terms back to back. It smacks of insensitivity and greed for anyone

from the south to declare for the presidency so soon. With Fayose's

latest action, it is now glaring that all his grandstanding was meant

to further his own selfish interest. He never had the interest of the

party, the people and the nation at heart. This man is simply

desperate for power. It is like since his anti-depressant drugs can no

longer contain him, he is looking for every available means to

perpetuate himself in office.

Otherwise, how do we explain the fact that the chairman of the PDP

governors' forum would go against the decision of the party? Little

wonder none of his governor-colleagues attended the event. No member

of the party in the national assembly attended the ceremony. At first,

he said he wanted to seek re election to continue his first term which

was truncated by impeachment in 2006.

Thereafter, he began to work towards becoming the vice-president and

now he says he wants to be the president! I am however glad that

Nigerians are no fools. They know those who really have their interest

at heart. They know the leaders with the demonstrable capacity to take

Nigeria to the proverbial promised land; not the charlatans and

looters who pretend to be leaders. On seeing his so called

presidential declaration on television, I wondered if he was declaring

to be a regional president because most of those who attended were

from a region of the country.

He is guilty of anti-party activities. In the light of the above, I

wish to urge the senator Ahmed Makarfi-led NCC to issue a query to

Fayose and subsequently refer him to the national disciplinary

committee for going against the party's zoning arrangement and stoking

resentment against our party in the minds of the electorate." the
