Buruji Kashamu born 19 May 1958 was a Nigerian politician who served as a Senator representing Ogun East in the 8th National Assembly. Ogun East covers eleven local government areas: Ijebu North-East, Ijebu North, Ijebu-Ode, Ijebu East, Ikenne, Odogbolu, Remo North, Sagamu, and Ogun Waterside. Senator Kashamu was the Vice-Chairman of the Senate Committee on States and Local Government.
Furthermore, he was a chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State. He was also appointed as the chairman, Organization and Mobilization Committee of the PDP in the South-West zone of Nigeria. In 2018, he was expelled from the People’s Democratic Party. His expulsion was later voided by an Abuja High Court in October 2018. Kashamu reportedly died of COVID-19 on 8 August 2020.
He contested the Ogun east senatorial seat and beat his closest rival with a poll of 99,540 votes. Prince Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressive Congress (APC) polled 84,001 votes and lost the senatorial seat to Kashamu. Kashamu was also the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 Ogun State gubernatorial election and lost against Dapo Abiodun of the All Progressives Congress coming in a distant 4th.
