President Olusegun Obasanjo statement that President Muhammadu Buhari should not seek a re-election in 2019 has vindicated our position says Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the advice by former President, Obasanjo as courageous, timeous and patriotic.
The party said the statement by the former President vindicates its position on President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Obasanjo on Tuesday publicly released a 13-page statement addressing different issues in Nigeria and advised President Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019.
PDP in the statement which was signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said the Obasanjo’s action has rekindled the fate of Nigerians in the democratic process.
The party, however, rejected the call by Obasanjo for a third force saying that such would amount to repeating the same blunder that brought in the APC and the Buhari-led administration.
“Chief Obasanjo’s counsel has rekindled the fate of the people in the democratic process. The solution, however, does not lie in creating another political quicksand in a third force but consolidating on a rescue mission with the repositioned PDP which Nigerians have already embraced,” the statement read in part.
However the PDP said the coalition will result in repeating the old mistake of congregating political strangers which cannot help Nigeria.
