Obasanjo and Buhari
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo today said he has bid goodnight to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he was a founding member.
Speaking to journalists in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital, while assessing some projects initiated by his administration in the state, former President, Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday, bade the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) good night, saying he will not return to the party, adding that he terminated his membership of PDP in February last year.
Commenting on the lingering crisis in the party, Obasanjo said he had already bade PDP good night and cannot return to say good evening.
“In the part of the country where I come from, there is a saying that you cannot say ‘good night’ and come back to say ‘good evening’ in the same place. So for me, it is good night for the Peoples Democratic Party and that’s all,” he said.
The former head of state expressed confidence that President Muhammadu Buhari will surmount the present challenges confronting the country.
“So far Buhari has not disappointed us. I trust him (Buhari), he will not fail Nigerians. I know he will overcome the challenges the country is currently facing,” the ex-President said.
He however, urged the President to complete the hydroelectric project on the Mambilla Plateau in Taraba.
