God forbid I go back to PDP - Obasanjo

Just as a dog doesn't return to its vomit I’ll never go back to PDP Obasanjo tells visiting Makarfi

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has vowed not to return to the former ruling party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, under which he (Obasanjo) ruled the country for 8 years (1999 - 2003).

He stated this to journalists after meeting behind closed-doors with the National Caretaker Chairman of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, .

The parley whose agenda is unknown is taking place at the Green Legacy Hotel and Resort, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, OOPL, Abeokuta.

After the meeting with the party's leaders, he maintained that he has dumped partisan politics for good but said Nigeria is his passion and will continue to contribute his quota until his last breath.

The post God Forbid, Says Obasanjo About Return To PDP appeared first on Channels Television.

"So, chairman has come to greet me and I greet am".

The former president insisted that party on government would get away power with impunity if there is no strong opposition party in the country. "And anything that concerns Nigeria, the good of Nigeria, you'd see my involvement".

The former President emerged from the meeting prevailing on his guest (Makarfi) not to talk to the press. No, I've said no partisan politics for me again and no partisan politics for me again.

Dayo denied any move by the party faithful to attack the chairman if he had had a stopover at the secretariat.

Also in the entourage of Makarfi were the Chairman, South-West Caretaker Committee of the party, Chief Eddy Olafeso; a former Minister of Mines and Steel, Mr. Sarafa Tunji-Isola, and a former factional state factional chairman, Sikirulai Ogundele.

Adebayo told reporters that they had mobilised PDP members from across the state's 20 local government areas to receive Makarfi and regretted that they could not see the caretaker chairman throughout his stay in Abeokuta. If somebody is going to Baba's house, we will see him.
