I'm still a PDP member- Obasanjo

2015-01-09 18:29
Abeokuta - Contrary to insinuations that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), the former President says he is still a member of the party, reports The Nation.

Obasanjo, who spoke in Abeokuta on Thursday when the presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party (NCP), Martins Onovo, visited his Hilltop home, said he is still a card carrying member of PDP because that is the party on which platform he became the president of this country.

He, however, said he can't sacrifice his life for the interest of the party.

He noted that he can only sacrifice his life for the interest of Nigeria.

He said he would not keep quiet about issues concerning the country, saying every Nigerian is a stakeholder and must speak up when things are getting out of hand.
