Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has predicted the death of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on whose back to hose to power in 1999 and 2003 but which was toppled at the polls by the All Progressives Congress (APC) on March 28 last year.
Reacting to yesterday’s emergence of Senator Alli Modu Sherrif as PDP’s new National Chairman, Obasanjo tweeted: “Let us have a minute of silence for PDP. I don’t expect anything else than this, not even when Ayo Fayose and Olisa Metuh are the microphone of the party.”
He added: “May the days ahead bring forth a better opposition party for Nigeria, that does not have a Boko Haram sponsor as its National Chairman.”
The Ota farmer, who earlier ruled Nigeria as a military dictator, advised the country’s youths to be wary of politicians, saying that they must accept themselves irrespective of their political beliefs.
He observed that while youths are busy fighting for PDP and APC, “politicians and leaders are busy inserting figures in the nation’s budget.”
Obasanjo noted that if the country is to get things right, Nigerian youths, either APC or PDP, must unite against enemies of the masses, as unity is a strong force to win the battle.
