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.

The former President described the PDP as “a party whose soul has been taken away and a party 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, the Ogun State capital in southwest Nigeria, Obasanjo also reiterated his renouncement of partisan politics.

On his part, Senator 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.
