A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja today upheld the expulsion of Senator Buruji Kashamu from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) , therefore resulting to his disqualification as governorship candidate of the party.
In a ruling with suit no: FCT/HC/0303/2017 the court affirmed the powers of the PDP, as provided in her constitution, to discipline and punish any member who contravenes any of the provisions of its constitution.
Speaking on the ruling Thursday, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan thanked the court for the judgement and call on INEC to take note of today’s ruling and effect change immediately where necessary.
“While hailing the judgment as victory for democracy, the PDP charges INEC to copiously take note of the development and reflect such in every issue regarding the conduct of governorship election in Ogun state”.
It would be recalled that the party had earlier expelled Senator Buruji in July over allegations of disloyalty to party constitution among others.
