I can never return to your Party – Obasanjo tells PDP leaders in closed door meeting
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Saturday, declared that there is no going back on his decision to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and partisan politics.
He said this on Saturday while addressing the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu and other stakeholders who visited him in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Saturday,
He said “I’m no longer in partisan politics and there is nothing that can bring me back. Anybody who wants my advice, I will always be there in the best interest of Nigeria.
“Whatever I do in my own life…because I became president on the platform of PDP, PDP will continue to be part of my life. Since the day I tore my PDP card, that was the day I ceased to be a member of PDP. That day I vowed not to be a member of any political party.
“I will continue to be a statesman.”
Reacting to the statement of the former President, the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu told Obasanjo that “if you leave PDP, the blood of PDP will never leave you.”
He also said the party would always require his fatherly advice towards governance in Nigeria.
He ended by applauding Obasanjo for being passionate about the progress, unity and development of the country, adding that “what we have now falls short of the leadership Nigeria deserves.”
