Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday met with the National Working Committee (NWC) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and counselled them on steps to adopt if they hoped to unhorse President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
Obasanjo who was elected Nigerian President twice from 1999 – 2007 on the platform of PDP, told the 21 man delegation of the Committee led by PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Walid Jibrin to pay more than passive attention to four issues, he identified, as needed ingredients to bring PDP back to power.
The Ebora Owu who announced his quitting of partisan politics in the build-up to the 2015 Presidential election to become an elder statesman, advised the party to court and embrace “good image, internal discipline, commitment, quality leadership and moral principles.”
The ex-President gave the advice in response to Uche Secondus.
Earlier, the National Chairman of PDP also appealed to the former President not to relent on giving necessary leadership to save the country from the throes of mismanagement and drift towards shipwrecking.
