The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) loyal to the late Senator Buruji Kashamu, on Sunday, disclosed that it is still in mourning mood one year after his death.
Kashamu, who was the PDP governorship candidate in the 2019 election, died on August 8, 2020, in Lagos, from COVID-19 complications.
He was buried at his residence in Ijebu-Igbo, Ijebu North Local Government Area on August 9.
Addressing newsmen in Abeokuta on Sunday, the state Chairman of PDP, Samson Bamgbose, paid glowing tributes to the late Kashamu.
He described him as a philanthropist, grassroots mobiliser and lover of the masses.
Bamgbose said the PDP in the state and the late politician’s loyalists are poised to sustain his legacy.
When asked about the crisis rocking the party in the state, he admitted that the group made peace with the Ladi Adebutu’s faction in April this year, but quickly added that the group reneged on the peace agreement.
