I’m done with PDP –Obasanjo

Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo declared he is done with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Obasanjo said this, yesterday, shortly after he met with the PDP National Caretaker Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, who visited him at the Green Legacy Resort and Hotel, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, capital of Ogun State.

The former president publicly tore his PDP membership card in 2015.

“Before, I was in PDP but not now. God forbid! When a dog vomits, it goes back to eat its vomit. No, I’ve said no partisan politics for me again and no partisan politics for me again.”

The former president however, pledged that he will always show concern and identify with anything that is good for the country. “Nigeria is my passion, until death do us part. And anything that concerns Nigeria, the good of Nigeria, you will see my involvement.”

He also said good governance and democracy will only thrive in Nigeria when there is a solid ruling government and vibrant opposition party.

“I have said that publicly before and I will say that again; for our democracy to thrive and to continue to be strong, we need a strong party in government and strong party in opposition. It has to be that way otherwise, the party in government will get away with impunity and that is not good for democracy”, he said.

Makarfi, who was accompanied on his visit by the PDP caretaker chairman in Osun State, Sarafa Tunji Ishola, national caretaker vice chairman, South West, Eddy Olafeso and other top party members arrived at the Presidential Library around 9.30am and met with Obasanjo behind closed doors.
