The Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Buruji Kashamu, has said he does not have any plans to decamp to the All Progressives Congress, APC, saying, his support for the Federal government’s anti-corruption stance is not borne out of my personal interest but the interest of the masses who are in the majority and the love for the country.
‘’Our people have suffered for too long because of a greedy few who amass our commonwealth for themselves and their families,” he said.
He also said corruption must die for Nigeria to live, adding that all Nigerians must support President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-graft war.
In a statement, the senator, who said he was not supporting the war because he planned to switch from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, added that; “Corruption by whatever colouration is bad and inimical to our growth as a nation”.
He said successive governments had made feeble and largely showmanship attempts to contain corruption with little or no results and without a sustainable plan of action.
He said: “Let me make it abundantly clear that I am not in any way romancing the APC. If truly politics is about the people and a contest of ideas, I cannot understand why any politician that is worth the name would see an idea that will benefit the people and not support it, irrespective of political leanings. I will support good initiatives, just as I will criticise bad ones.”
‘’We must realize that the elections and campaigns are over. Whether we were elected on the platform of the PDP or APC, our people trusted us with their mandate because they know that we would represent them well and fight their course. It is a sacred responsibility that we must not betray.”
