Obasanjo Shuns PDP Leaders Ahead Of 2023 Elections

A former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Matthew Okikiola Aremu Obasanjo, on Saturday said he would not return to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP as he is retired from partisan politics.

Former president Obasanjo, who renounced his membership of the PDP in 2015, stated this when he received the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu; and other stakeholders who paid him a visit on Saturday in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The visit, according to sources, was targeted at returning the former president to the opposition party ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The former President while addressing the stakeholders, however, said he had vowed to remain as a statesman. He, however, said PDP would always be part of his life.

He said, “I’m no longer in partisan politics and there is nothing that can bring 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.”

Meanwhile, Chief Bode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, says he would relocate out of Nigeria if the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu emerges as the next president of the country in the year 2023.

Bode George stated this after Tinubu informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to contest for president of Nigeria in the 2023 general elections.
