The PDP lost the governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Monday, Kashamu blamed the loss on the politics of Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP.

He congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) for winning both elections.

“The Almighty Allah has used President Buhari and the APC to prove to him that power belongs to Him alone and He gives it to whoever he wants. That is why the PDP lost woefully in Bayelsa State after being in power for 20 years,” he said.

“The theatrics leading to the election in Kogi State are all too familiar to be recounted. No thanks to Secondus’ kind of politics.”

Buruji Kashamu described Buhari and the APC as being more politically savvy, urging them to continue to “capitalise on PDP’s weaknesses until it learns useful lessons and retraces its steps like the prodigal son”.

He urged Buhari not to relent in his anti-corruption drive, saying it remains the unique selling point of the current administration.

The former lawmaker, who represented Ogun east senatorial district, said the long years of corruption has affected the economy negatively and it will take sometime to fix it.

“It is visible to all and sundry that President Buhari is on the right track in fixing the economy and improving infrastructure with several initiatives such as the Treasury Single Account (TSA), Deep Offshore Act, road and rail ways, among others,” he said.

Kashamu said he remains a chieftain of the PDP, adding that he will continue to fight for the right things to be done within the party.
