Abuja – Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has not left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), it has been revealed.
According to Daily Post, Former Senior Special Assistant to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan on public affairs, Doyin Okupe said this in a statement on Friday.
This comes almost a year after Obasanjo denounced his membership, when he ordered the chairperson of the party at his ward in Abeokuta, Sunmonu Oladunjoye to help him tear his PDP membership card publicly, the report said.
Okupe insisted that the elder statesman was still a member of the PDP.
"Baba Obasanjo still remains the undisputed and authentic leader of the PDP in the south-west. The fact that he tore his membership card is not tantamount to resignation from the party," Okupe was quoted as saying.
