The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked for forgiveness from former president Olusegun Obasanjo, whom it last year removed as Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman, pleading with him to come and lead the party.
PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, tendered the apology after former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, who was at the PDP National headquarters in Abuja to formally announce his return from Labour Party, asked for forgiveness from the two-time president. Mu’azu who commended Daniel for openly appealing to Chief Obasanjo for forgiveness also pleaded for forgiveness on behalf of the party.
He said: “I want to join Governor Daniel to appeal to our Baba, President Olusegun Obasonjo, to forgive us. We are your children and we have been making mistakes; we had made mistakes and so we apologise.
“Please Baba, we apologise, come and lead us, even the president is waiting for you to come and lead us; you are our leader, we appreciate you, we thank you for your leadership and your courage.”
