Why I Visited Baba Obasanjo – PDP Chairman Sheriff


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advocated a strong party in power and a strong opposition party, if Nigeria’s democracy must be strong, dynamic and cherished.


He made the call after a closed door meeting with a factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff on Saturday.

Obasanjo described the PDP as “a party whose soul has been taken away and now in comatose”.

He spoke on the recent crisis in the PDP, under which he was once the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Speaking to journalists at his hilltop residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, Obasanjo reiterated his renouncement of partisan politics.

On his part, Sheriff eulogised the leadership of the former President. He said his visit was part of the ongoing consultation aimed at finding lasting solutions to the leadership crisis in the PDP.
