Ex-President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has stood his ground never to return to the People’s Democratic Party again. He said he would rather remain a statesman, working for the interest of the nation. He made his intention known during a brief meeting with National Caretaker Chairman of the party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, behind close door at the Presidential Library, Abeokuta.
He said, “I have told the chairman that I was in the PDP before but not now, going back is like a dog returning to is vomit. No.’ “I have said no partisan politics for me again, but Nigeria is my passion until death do us a part. And anything that concerns Nigeria, the good of Nigeria, you’ll see my involvement.
When asked of his message for the PDP, Obasanjo said, “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, party in government will get away with impunity and that is not good for democracy.”
Obasanjo took Makarfi on tour of the museum and various sections in the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential library.
