Abeokuta - Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday told the Senate President, David Mark and the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that nobody in the party has personally offended him, reports Punch.

Obasanjo who was reacting to the plea made by the PDP chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, Mark, and a former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, for him to forgive party members and to return to the party, said he will continue to remain in the party.

In a statement he issued in Abeokuta on Sunday, the former president noted that he is ready to offer an unreserved apology to anybody or group who feel offended by his continued membership of the party.

He said his disagreement with the party leadership borders on issues of principle, morality, honour , integrity and character.

He pointed out that as Chairman of West Africa Commission on Drug and a member of Global Commission on Drug, he is not comfortable having  an indicted drug baron wanted in America as the leader of the party in the South- West.
