Just Like The PDP, APC Is A ‘Wobbling’ Party - Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has stated that both the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) were “wobbling parties” that required resuscitation if Nigeria’s democracy were to attain needed growth levels.

Obasanjo made the claim when he received one of the PDP national chairmanship aspirants, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library  in Abeokuta.
“I have also said that the two parties that are there, the one in government and the one in opposition are both wobbling parties.

“I still believe that the two wobbling parties can still be made strong. They can,’’ Obasanjo said.
The former president also restated that he was no longer interested in partisan politics in Nigeria, adding that he left the PDP when he discovered that the party had been destroyed beyond what he could be associated with.

Obasanjo said there was no reason the PDP should not have ruled Nigeria for 50 years as boasted by some people, but for its self-destruction.

“That has happened in some other countries like Germany, where a party runs the affairs of the county for decades, but of course, that is not the history in our own case’’, he said.
He added that those who destroyed the PDP were still in it and that they would not leave until selfless, upright people assumed leadership.

“If we are just saying PDP has a crisis, which is self-made and that the Supreme Court had resolved the crisis for us, we are just deceiving ourselves.

“The Supreme Court has taken a right decision as an apex court should, but as a party, only that cannot help you to do it all’’, he said.

He prayed for the PDP to get its national convention right, saying the chairmanship of the party was crucial.
