NATIONAL Chairman of the
Labour Party, Abdusalam Paiko,
has said that the party would gladly
welcome the Senator representing
Ogun-East Senatorial District,
Senator Buruji Kashamu if he is
willing to come on board.
Paiko said this at a press
briefing in Abeokuta, organised to
announce its readiness for the 2019
general elections.
Kashamu was few days ago
suspended by the leadership of the
PDP for anti-party activities.
The National Chairman while
fielding questions from newsmen, however, said the Labour Party
desired to have Senator Kashamu
in the party only if he was willing to
join the party.
His words, “I am happy to be
in Ogun state to midwife the repositioning
and restructuring of
Labour Party in Ogun state to
capture power in 2019.
“The leadership of Labour party
is determined to ensure total victory
in the coming general elections by
opening our party to welcome good
citizens of Ogun state into our party.
“We are resolute to embrace
pragmatic changes that will enable us to deliver the dividend of
democracy to all and sundry, and
in our quest to take over power
from the incumbent governor on
May 29th, 2019.”
Speaking further, Paiko said
the party was open to interested
individuals and groups, without
discrimination of whatever form
and all ambitions would be
accorded equal treatment.
“There are many that I have
met since I came, but I will not
disclose any name now. I have
told the state chairman that I will
be constant here,” he added.
