I Will Never Return To PDP -Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that he would never return to PDP. He made the disclosure on Tuesday, October 16, after he met with the National Caretaker Chairman of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, behind closed-doors.

The meeting was held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, which lasted for one hour. Chief Obasanjo emphasised that his decision to quit partisan politics would not affect his passion for Nigeria’s growth

The former president said, “I will never return to the PDP, just like a dog would never return to its vomit.”

The former President who reinstated that he has ended partisan politics, however, said that the decision does not affect his passion for Nigeria’s growth.

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

“I have said no partisan politics for me again. And not partisan politics but Nigeria is my passion until death do us part. Anything that concerns Nigeria, the good of Nigeria, you will see my involvement,” he said.

On his meeting with Makarfi, the former president said it was a meeting of two former colleagues. ‎”This na two colleagues meeting, two colleagues before before. When I was the President, Chairman was a governor.

Two colleagues before before,” he said. He said he emphasised to his guest that he would never again be involved in party politics. ‎”I have told the Chairman that I was in PDP before but not now. God forbid say when a dog vomits, it will go back to eat its vomit, no. I have said no partisan politics for me again and not partisan politics.

‎”So, the Chairman has come to greet me and I greet am. And now that we’ve greeted ourselves, Chairman will be going, you gentlemen and ladies of the press, you can now go, leave the Chairman alone,” he stated.

Meanwhile it has been widely reported that secret meeting was held between former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Senator Ahmed Makarfi, national caretaker chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
