Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that the recent crisis in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) shows that the party’s era had come to an end.

Obasanjo disclosed this while fielding questions from newsmen in Jalingo, the Capital City of Taraba during  a tour of some projects in the state.

When asked to comment on the ongoing crisis in his former party, the PDP, Obasanjo simply said “in the part of the country where I come from, there is a saying that you cannot say ‘good night’ and come to say ‘good evening’ in the same place.

“So for me, it is good night for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and that’s all,” he said.

Obasanjo who was one time Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Party had torn his membership certificate before the 2015 election denouncing the party in its entirety.

Recently when a picture and story went out in the media that he was at a PDP event at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, he also made it very clear that he was done with the party and with partisan politics.

    Yes, to Obasanjo it’s good night to PDP after using the party to rise to the presidency twice and a failed third term bid, he can now shamelessly bade it farewell. What an ungrateful fellow. He should return all the benefits and return to prison and complete his term.

      If you are unhappy with Obasanjo over his comments especially in PDP, then go to court so that a court injunction can compel him to return to PDP, balderdash.
