‘Nothing Can Bring Me Back To Politics’ — Obasanjo Tells PDP Leaders

Obasanjo made his position known while addressing PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, and other leaders of the party.

The NWC team led by National Chairman of PDP, Ayu Iyorchia Ayu visited Obasanjo.

The PDP leaders in attendance were former Ondo Governor Dr. Segun Mimiko; former Cross River Governor Donald Duke; his successor; Liyel Imoke; 2019 PDP vice presidential candidate Dr. Peter Obi; former Jigawa Governor Sule Lamido; former Minister of Police Affairs, Adamu Waziri and former Kogi Deputy Governor Yomi Awoniyi among others.

Obasanjo while speaking with the PDP leaders, said the party would continue to be part of his history.

He insisted that since he tore his membership card in 2015, he severed ties with active politics.

Obasanjo said he will continue to play the role of a statesman.

He added that he will offer advice to anyone who wants it in the best interest of the nation.

“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 remain a statesman in Nigeria, West Africa, Africa and indeed in the world at large.

“Though I have retired from partisan politics, but I cannot retire from the welfare and wellbeing of the people, whether in my own community, in my own state, in my own country, anywhere in Africa or indeed anywhere in the world.”

Ayu, on his part, told Obasanjo that the “blood of PDP” will never leave him, even though he has left the party.

Ayu said the party would always require his fatherly advice for good governance.
