‘For Me, It’s Good Night to PDP’ – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday bade the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) good night, saying he will
not return to the party.
Obasanjo spoke to journalists in Jalingo, Taraba, while
assessing some projects initiated by his administration in
the state.
The ex-President terminated his membership of PDP in
February last year.
Speaking on the lingering crisis in the party which now has
two national chairmen, Obasanjo said he had already bade
PDP good night and cannot return to say good evening.
“In the part of the country where I come from, there is a
saying that you cannot say ‘good night’ and come back to
say ‘good evening’ in the same place.
“So for me, it is good night for the Peoples Democratic
Party and that’s all,” he said.
He expressed confidence that President Muhammadu
Buhari will surmount the present challenges confronting
the country.
“So far Buhari has not disappointed us. I trust him (Buhari),
he will not fail Nigerians. I know he will overcome the
challenges the country is currently facing,” the ex-
President added.
He also urged the President to complete the hydroelectric
project on the Mambilla Plateau in Taraba.
