The Ogun state Labour Party Chairman, Comrade Abayomi Arabambi has replied one of the party member who contested for the House of Representatives in the last general election, Dr Niyi Osoba for stepping out to advised Buruji Kashamu to step down for Ladi Adebutu and align his authenticity with PDP.

This was contained in a statement issued and signed by Arabambi and made available to journalists in Abeokuta the state capital.

It would be recalled that Kashamu on Saturday reacted to the ThisDay newspaper of 16th May, 2020, and several online publications, in which the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus said he (Kashamu) is not a member of the PDP because, according to him (Secondus), he (Kashamu) had been expelled from the party."

Niyi Osoba’s earlier statement indicated that; “My distinguished Senator Sir and brother and in whom I have respect for, my post on the position of law on conflicting couple is just to remind us that unless the two parties in a contractual agreement or union mutually align, the relationship or union will have to go.

The consonance of that to the issue of your membership of PDP is that unless you allign yourself strongly with the national leadership of the PDP, she may reject your membership. The only thing that the court can assure you of is if your eviction or dismissal is wrongly done, you could have a temporary relief but I assure you in the long run the court can not force your membership on the party.

If you doubt this sir, you may wish to continue to be confrontational. We shall all witness the outcome by the grace of Almighty God.

Secondly, you talked about mutual interest in any relationship, if the interest of you and the national differ, how do you think that your association with the national could still flourish and subsist?

Thirdly, you said many of those who are trying to collapse the interest of Kashamu group have dined with you. Yes, I agree in-toto with you sir. I must remind you of the theory of dynamism. These people including me were once upon a time with the likes of Chief Olusegun Osoba, Senator Jubril Martins- Kuye, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, Senator Ibikunle Amosun among others at one time or the other.

Infact, the Yoruba aphoristic sobriquet says that Oba mewa, igba mewa. The Hausa also share this view by saying that Seriki ngo mo, samoni ngo mo. Let me remind you also that the English subtlety says that an actor lives the stage when ovation I loudest.

Every signal have shown that you have tried your best and nearly 85 percent of Ogun PDP family want you to step back.

Sir, you may claim that you have a structure, but I think you once had a structure if you properly evaluate the present scenario that is playing out politically. I therefore wish to advise you sincerely that you don’t need to fight back with all your energy because you have addmitted that everything belongs to Allah. It is with the same spirit that the likes of my amiable political godfather Otunba Gbenga Daniel let go to you, ditto Chief Olusegun Osoba, who is now watching his boys playing the ball. Hon Ladi Adebutu passed through you as well, hence, the only dignifying thing for you is not to take issue as do or die moreso that you claimed that you don’t have interest in contesting again. Let him now spend the money as you have been doing and take over from you.

How I wish that you direct those still in your group to go and team up with Hon Ladi Adebutu and the form PDP mainstream which shall belong to all of us. If you do this , you will surely be an hero, else you will give credit to the insinuation that you are profiting from holding on to the structure at all cost”.

While responding, Arabambi accused Niyi Osoba, saying that he was so wrong to have stepped out of the history of the crisis in Ogun PDP

Read his response below:

"The crafty is always caught in his craftiness. People who are much discredited by their past are limited in the needful capacity to be coherent in a public discussion."

Everyone is free to  say whatever but of course , the freedom doesn’t include being free from the consequences of his talk.

In his own self – written testimonial as depicted in his bland and attention seeking statement directed at Senator Buruji Kashamu , he laboured very much unsuccessfully to do two things :

(1) to expose his personal lack of adequate understanding of the issues at stake in the political dispute between the Lado group of PDP with the National Exco , on the one hand and the Legal Ogun State PDP , led by Senator Buruji Kashamu on the other hand.

 (2) to publicly show the inadequate level of his political party Administration experience and the constitutional rights , privileges and demands including the responsibilities  involved.

To Dr Niyi Osoba in spite of his  hard earned Doctorate degree acquired as he was able to , he has demonstrated a very embarrassingly hollow , shallow and  vague kind of reasoning.

In his published statement on the crisis in Ogun PDP , he sees the crisis as one in which only one single individual’s personal interest  could be recklessly fingered as the only factor and interest that precipitated the crisis .

Currently , the correct position of the law says that the Lado group are not only non existent but mere puppets of certain interests outside Ogun PDP domicile in Abuja

Dr Niyi Osoba was so wrong to have stepped out of the history of the crisis in Ogun PDP and thus wrote out the various Judicial pronouncements and orders constituting the correct legal position of each side to the dispute .

Meanwhile , it is not really important to dignify the empty rantings he pushed out as a statement with a reply as one does here ,but for the need of letting Dr Niyi  Osoba  knows  that he is still living with the poor political vision he is perpetually acknowledged for.

However , to give the public an insight into Dr  Niyi Osoba’s pitiable personality , i must state the following :

(1). In 2019 , he had to migrate from Lado group to beg for the National Assembly Candidacy for Ijebu Central Constituency.

(2). He was, in the Lado group throughly dumped and denied the same ticket after the group felt that he has been used to embarrass the other side by his decamping from the Buruji Kashamu led legal and authentic Ogun PDP into the Lado floating and unrecognized arms of  Ogun PDP.

(3) Unknown to the unsuspecting Lado group and their legendary political naivety that Dr Niyi Osoba had to run away  from the Buruji led authentic Ogun PDP for reasons of dishonesty that  bordered on dereliction of duty

(4). It was same  Ogun LP under my leadership  that I was persuaded as a fellow Comrade to give him the desired ticket free as he pledged to pay his nomination fees later .

(5) He is so much driven by greed and he was bought out of Ogun LP by Lado group with  monetary persuasion to still go back to the same group that treated him  with  scorn earlier when he wanted the House of Representatives ticket, when the Lado group hopelessly hope that the group will be eventually recognised by INEC.

 (6) As at today , I as the State Chairman of Ogun LP is yet to receive Dr  Niyi Osoba’s formal resignation letter as a member of Ogun LP. He still remains Ogun State LP former Candidate for Ijebu Central Federal Constituency for 2019 election.

It is really a wonder to hear Dr  Niyi Osoba pitiably justifying the position of the Lado group when he is conscious of the circumstances that made him scuttle out of the Buruji Kashamu Omo Ilu as a paid DG under some very shameful circumstances to join the group that eventually found him more worthless than even tissue paper .

By and large , it should be clear to the public that Niyi Osoba is a man who is highly lacking in scruples . It is much understandable why he has slipped this much down on the scale of integrity to become this sorry personality that is now expressly driven by this very unimaginable moral deadness . It is sad.

Finally , it is very much clearer to the politically initiated that the current attitude of some hawks in the Lado group that are urging him to once again embark on a lost war against the authentic and legal Ogun PDP led by Senator Buruji Kashamu that is coming from a truly very strong position is going to attract some unintended and very unprecedented consequences for very many and their political careers.

It will not be good enough to end this piece without letting it be known by the public and Lado politically dying group  to note that Comrade Dr  Niyi Osoba is still a bona fide member of Ogun LP up to this very moment.

Again , there is practically nothing that Comrade Dr Niyi Osoba can offer in this his shaky and illegal political home in Lado’s PDP group, statement concluded"
