Bayo Dayo Wanted To Sell Ogun PDP To Adebutu For N100million - Kashamu

ABEOKUTA - A PDP stalwart and Senator who represented Ogun East Senatorial District at the 8th National Assembly, Senator Buruji Kashamu has accused the suspended PDP Chairman in the state, Engr. Bayo Dayo for attempting to collapse the party structure for Chief Keshington Adebutu for N100million.

Kensington, is the father of factional leader of PDP in the state, Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu.

Kashamu disclosed this in a press statement personally signed and made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Abeokuta. 

He disclosed that, the party has evidence of meeting at an hotel where Dayo allegedly collected money to sell the party structures in the state to Chief Keshington Adebutu. 

Bayo Dayo has earlier accused Senator Kashamu of sending emissaries to bribe him with N10million not to quit the party.

But speaking on the suspension of Engr. Day-Old, Senator Kashamu noted that, the Ogun State Working Committee (OGSWC) of the party acted in tandem with Article 57 (3) of the party's constitution for suspending Engr. Dayo over anti-party activities. 

He said the constitutional provision empowers the OGSWC of the PDP to suspend any member of the party for a period not exceeding one month during which period such a member may be referred to the appropriate Disciplinary committee. 

He added that, Article 21(4) empowers two thirds (2/3) of the members of the OGSWC to call an extraordinary meeting, saying notice of the meeting must be signed by 11 out of the 14 members of the OGSWC. 

"We have the evidence of the meeting at Equity Hotel, Ijebu Ode, where Dayo collected money to sell the Ogun State structures of the PDP to Kessington Adebutu. What the Adebutus should realize is that they have been scammed, as Dayo has no power to transfer the structures of the Party to anyone.

"This illegal transaction shows the low mentality of Dayo. Otherwise, how can anyone think that he can sell a political structure comprising many interests, major stakeholders for a mere 100 million naira?

"No one is against the reconciliation of any aggrieved members but the question members of the Party continue to ask is: how Dayo could claim that he was trying to reconcile anyone when he did not have any meeting with any stakeholder or any of the Party Executive Committees at LGA or ward level and carried nobody in the State Eecutive Committee along before signing his contract with the Adebutus. What is more intriguing is: how would someone who calls himself PDP Chairman want to sell the party to people who still have a binding and subsisting three-year agreement with the Allied People's Movement (APM) in Ogun State.

"Yet, Dayo thinks he can now sell everyone in Ogun PDP to the Adebutus. He is the greatest betrayer of all time. No right thinking person should have anything to do with him.

"I wish to urge all members of the Party in Ogun State to be peaceful and calm, as Dayo has no hope of victory in his dastardly endeavour. Members should be confident that the future of the Party in Ogun State is bright and all will be well.

"Constitutionally, the suspension of Adebayo Dayo was very much in order as prescribed by Article 57(3) of the PDP constitution.

"This provision empowers the Ogun State Working Committee (OGSWC) of the PDP to suspend any member of the Party for a period not exceeding one month during which period such a member may be referred to the appropriate Disciplinary Committee.

"The OGSWC did not entertain any motion to discipline Adebayo Dayo. It only considered a motion to lodge a complaint against him at the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP, for his activities against the Ogun State Executive Committee (OGSWC) and the Party in Ogun State.

"Article 21(4) empowers two thirds (2/3) of the members of the OGSWC to call an extraordinary meeting and in this case the notice of the meeting was signed by 11 out of the 14 members of the OGSWC.

"Article 21(5) further prescribes that the quorum for meetings of the OGSWC of the PDP shall be 1/3 of the members of the OGSWC. In this case, 11 out of the 14 members of the OGSWC attended the meeting and voted in favour of the resolution to suspend Engr. Adebayo Dayo.

"The same Article 21(5) prescribes that a simple majority of the members present at the meeting shall pass “any motion. The motion to suspend Engr. Adebayo Dayo was unanimously passed by all the members present at the meeting."
