There are reports that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, and the Senator representing Ogun-East Senatorial District, Buruji Kashamu, met a few days ago, to strategize on ways to stop the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, from installing a successor in the next Governorship election in the State.
However, three sources claimed that Buruji Kashamu was at Obasanjo’s Hill Top mansion in Abeokuta, Ogun State, four days ago, on the former President’s invitation.
Kashamu was accompanied to the meeting by two of his Associates, who were not allowed into the meeting with Obasanjo.
“We were shocked to the bone when we saw Prince Buruji Kashamu being ushered into Baba’s residence, because here is the same Kashamu that he (Obasanjo) accused of being a drug baron, and wanted in the US.
The source also claimed: “Baba said that he will not rest until he humiliated Fayose, who has been running his mouth like tap water.”
“It was later that we heard that his (Buruji) coming to see Baba, was to perfect how to use what they called the ‘Ondo Option’, to frustrate the chances of whoever Governor Fayose presents as the PDP candidate in the 2018 Governorship election”, one of the three sources said.
Another of the sources also disclosed that Obasanjo impressed it upon Kashamu to remain in the PDP, and be causing trouble in Ogun and Ekiti States, using frivolous court orders as done in the past.
“Baba is interested in Ekiti and Ogun States Governorship elections, and he wants Buruji Kashamu to help him play the spoiler role as usual. You know in Baba’s political game, there is no morality, he can dine and wine with anyone just to achieve his aim. That I believe is the reason he is now dealing with the same Kashamu that he called a known habitual criminal, wanted abroad for a crime that must not be treated with reverence”, said the source.
