Following the dramatic lost of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressive Congress, APC, at the just concluded presidential election, efforts have been made to restore the party back to glory.
In order to restore back the power which the party has used in ruling the nation for 16 years without any interference from any other party, the few loyalists remaining in the party have decided to plead with Obasanjo who they described as the party’s godfather.
According to Premium Times, several serving governors and federal lawmakers have persuaded the former Nigeria Ruler to return to the party and lead it so that it can be ready for the ‘opposition duty’ when the Mr. Buhari’s administration starts.
However, Obasanjo was said to have bluntly refused.
He was overheard telling a PDP chieftain who called him recently about the matter. “I’m done with party politics here on earth and in heaven. Period,”
In regards to the tearing of his membership card publicly, he was quoted as saying, “as it is now, a goat has eaten up the pieces”.
