'I’m Done With Party Politics,' Obasanjo Insists

A former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has maintained that he has retired from party politics and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) remains his former political party and nothing will change that status. 

Obasanjo, who was in Osogbo, Osun State, to commission the VIP lodge at the Government House, hailed Governor Ademola Adeleke for not being a dancing governor alone but also a working governor.

“Some people once despised you for being a dancer, but I maintained that only happy people dance. You are my dancing partner.”

Obasanjo described Osun as a complex state, saying, “It is not difficult to govern; it only requires the fear of God, openness, and good character.

What I have heard and seen since three days ago that I have been here, if there is doubt in anybody that you are working, tell the person to come and see. If you remember there was a time I phoned you, and I said don’t hate dancing, but as you are dancing, ensure you are working.

“If I say that I don’t know what happened before you get to the government, it is a lie. But, you did something last week Sunday, by calling leaders of your party. It was my party but I am not participating in party politics again. I am happy that you called them for deliberation. Senator Olu Alabi is here, Alhaji Fatai Akinbade, and former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola. We should bring everyone on board. I have talked to two out of three of them, it is a good move which is not only good for the party but also good for the state and the country,” Obasanjo said.

Governor Adeleke said the completed VIP lodge was in fulfilment of his promise to complete all abandoned projects by his predecessors.
