'We won't die if you don't return to us' PDP responds to Obasanjo's statement


 
On Tuesday the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of PDP, Ahmed Makarfi, paid former president Olusegun Obasanjo, a visit in Abeokuta, Ogun state.

After the visit, Obasanjo was asked by journalists if the meeting was centered on him returning to the party whose membership card he tore in February 2015. Replying the journalists, Obasanjo said he will never return to PDP as a dog doesn't go back to it's vomit.

“I have told the chairman that I was in the PDP before but not now. God forbid. See when dog vomits, will it go back to eat its vomit, no. I have said no partisan politics for me again, but Nigeria is my passion until death do us apart. And anything that concerns Nigeria, the good of Nigeria, you’ll see my involvement. So, the chairman has come to greet me and I greet am, and now that we have greeted ourselves, the chairman will be going, you gentlemen and ladies of the press, you can now go, leave the chairman alone.” he said

PDP members have now replied him saying the former president who was one-time the chairman of the party's board of trustees, can do as he pleases as they would not die without him. The party spoke through its  National spokesperson, Prince Dayo Adeyeye

“He has said it before. We are not going to force him. No individual is bigger than the party. Obasanjo has the right to hold his opinion. But the PDP will not die, either he joins us or not. We respect his opinion.  There’s nothing to say more than that. He is an individual and we respect him.” he said
