Jalingo - Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday said he has bid goodnight to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he was a founding member.

Obasanjo disclosed this while fielding questions from journalists in Jalingo, the Capital City of Taraba, during a tour of some projects in the state.
When asked to comment on the ongoing crisis in his former party, the PDP, Mr. Obasanjo simply said “in the part of the country where I come from, there is a saying that you cannot say ‘good night’ and come to say ‘good evening’ in the same place.
“So for me, it is good night for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and that’s all,” he said.
Obasanjo. who was one time Chairman, Board of Trustees of the party, had torn his membership certificate before the 2015 election denouncing the party in its entirety.
