South West Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) executive members and leaders has asked members in the region not to associate with Senator Buruji Kashamu over his alleged anti-party activities during the prolonged leadership crisis.
PDP leaders in the region announced the decision at the end of their reconciliatory meeting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

“The entire South West leadership and stakeholders condemn the destabilizing and anti-party activities of Senator Buruji Kashamu and demand disciplinary actions against him for his roles in the losses of the party in Ogun, Ondo and Edo states,” he said.
