The League of Registered Political Parties (LRPP), Ogun state chapter has called on the state government to arrest Senator Buruji Kashamu and his PDP loyalists for flouting Nigeria Centre For Disease Control (NCDC) order on the containment of the spread of Covid-19.

LRPP also expressed disappointment on Senator Buruji Kashamu and his followers for acting as if they are all above the law and protocols given by the NCDC.

The political group in a press statement issued and signed by its Chairman, Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday hinted that a group of people led by Senator Buruji Kashamu out of political desperation rolled out programme to inaugurate an 'illegal' executive of Ogun Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at Abeokuta on the 8th of May,2020 against the NCDC and Lockdown protocols of Prohibition of social gathering at this crucial moment of the world history.

Oginni alleged that the gathering and meeting of PDP stalwarts was masterminded by Senator Buruji Kashamu in his desperation to hold on to the leadership and control of Ogun PDP at all cost.

According to the release which read in parts "Recognizing the fact that the Federal Government and Ogun state government concurrently declared total lockdown of the state to contain the spread of the deadly Corona Virus, It's therefore a big surprise that Senator Buruji Kashamu was bold enough to instigate the forceful opening of Ogun PDP Sectariat for the unholy gathering and the Inauguration of the illegal PDP Executives led by one Mr. Bamgbose on the 8th of May,2020."

"We hereby called on  Gov.Dapo Abiodun to demonstrate to the whole world that the war against Covid -19 is without fear and favour by ordering the immediate arrest and Prosecution of Senator Buruji Kashamu, Mr.Bamgbose and other members of his illegal executives."

"It is  disturbing that Senator Buruji Kashamu and his followers are acting as if they are all above the law and protocols of NIGERIA CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL (NCDC)"

"It is also on record that INDEPENDENT NATIONAL  ELECTORAL COMMISSION (INEC) through his Spokesperson Mr. Festus Okoye announced the suspension of all Political Patties activities including Congresses and Convention till further notice due to the dreaded Corona Virus . 

"It is therefore criminal for any Political party or any group of people to lay claim to any congress during this Period of  Pandemic to the extent of celebrating an illegal inauguration."

"Gov.Dapo Abiodun therefore needed to show courage as a leader who is not afraid to discharge his duties as a Governor by making sure that Political Party that flouted the law of social gathering especially during this lockdown are apprehended and prosecuted irrespective of whose ox is gored."

"We're all living witness to the arrest and Prosecution of an Actress- Funke Akindale for just holding a parlor birthday party for her husband in Lagos"

"If the churches and mosques could not open,why would the Governor of Ogun State allowed Senator Buruji Kashamu and his followers opened the PDP Sectariat and performed an elaborate function to the extent of inaugurating an illegal executives with pomp and peagentary without any challenges from the state government officials?"

"We hereby  call on the Chairman of NCDC and all relevant governmental agencies that are connected with the enforcement and Prosecution of lawless individuals who are clog in the wheel of the containment and eradication of this pandemic to ensure that those that gathered at the Ogun PDP Secretariat on the 8th of May 2020 for the inglorious inauguration face the full wrath of the Law."
