The new point man of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South West, Prince Buruji Kashamu is set to open his new multi-purpose political edifice, which is to be the centre of all the activities of the party, not only in the South West, where he is saddled with the party's strategic thinking and mobilization, but all over Nigeria.
When we visited the centre last week, the place, which is almost completed, has started playing host to the pillars of the party in the South West.
A source told us that it was from there that the strategic planning and execution of the plans that won the PDP the Governorship seat of Ekiti State was perfected.
“The man known as Mr. Authority spared no cost in putting the right things in place here and did well for the Ayo Fayose Campaign and election, so don't be surprised if we give him his due credit for what he did in Ekiti, the issue of Osun State is quite different, but let it be known that if certain things had gone the way he planned them, he would have done the same with the Osun Election,” said a source.
The political centre is made up of well structured guest houses, about 30 are already in place with all the conveniences you can find in a highbrow hotel.
The hall, which is called “The Transformation Hall,” can seat 3,000 political leaders for any seminar. The campaign ground is also a beauty to behold.
