I’m done with PDP, can’t help you or party – Obasanjo tells Makarfi


The National Caretaker Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi, on Tuesday held a private meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo ostensibly to seek Obasanjo’s help in rebuilding and rejuvenating crisis – ridden PDP.

But indications emerged later that the outcome of the hour – long meeting at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, did not fit into Makarfi’s initial expectations.

Rather than get help, it was learnt, that Obasanjo reminded the former Governor of Kaduna State in clear term that he was long done with PDP and would not want to reverse himself on a decision long taken about the party.

Obasanjo who was elected President of Nigeria twice on the ticket of PDP and later became the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the party, had in the build up to the 2015 general elections, publicly tore his PDP membership card before Television Camera and announced his quitting of partisan politics to become an elder statesman and father of all of Nigerians.
