Save Me From PDP’s Hammer, Kashamu Begs Court
The Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Buruji Kashamu has asked the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to nullify the disciplinary actions taken against him by the PDP.
Kashamu, in a suit he filed on Friday before the court, argued that all disciplinary steps, including the query dated September 7, 2017 issued against him and his referral to the Disciplinary Committee of the party, were in violation of the judgment of the Federal High Court, Lagos Division, in a suit FHC/L/CS/605/2016.
He said the action of the party was also in disobedience of an order by Justice Babatunde Quadri of the Federal High Court, Abuja, made in suit FHC/ABJ/CS/732/2017 on September 5, 2017.
The Senator said the PDP, as a party in “serial disobedience of court orders in the management of its affairs in the South West and disdain for the rule of law”, unless the court intervened in the matter, would unjustifiably expel him or block him from seeking nomination for future elections on its platform.
In the fresh suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/866/2017, Kashamu alleged that some national leaders of the PDP are moving against him because he insisted on observance of internal democracy in the South West.
Respondents in the suit are the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) the PDP and the Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee.
Other respondents are the Chairman of the PDP Disciplinary Committee, Tom Ikimi; Makarfi, and another member of the party Caretaker Committee, Ben Obi.
