The ex-President terminated his membership of PDP in February last year.

Speaking on the lingering crisis in the party which now has two national chairmen, Obasanjo said he had already bade PDP good night and cannot return to say good evening.

“In the part of the country where I come from, there is a saying that you cannot say ‘good night’ and come back to say ‘good evening’ in the same place.

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

He expressed confidence that President Muhammadu Buhari will surmount the present challenges confronting the country.

“So far Buhari has not disappointed us. I trust him (Buhari), he will not fail Nigerians. I know he will overcome the challenges the country is currently facing,” the ex-President added.

He also urged the President to complete the hydroelectric project on the Mambilla Plateau in Taraba.



  1. Once OBJ cannot control a sitting president to do his wishes,that President has become his sworn enemies.The same man who didn’t listen to advice and the cry of the electorates over his devilish policy.I pray he doesn’t turn his back against pmb when he snub him.

  2. I don’t see Nigeria moving forward with the set of politicians we currently have. None of them really have the interest of the common man in their hearts. They get there, amassing wealth in their own pockets. If not for politics people like Saraki, Amaechi, TINUBU, GEJ, OBJ and Co will not be as rich as they are now. Posterity will judge all those that are looting our Democratic dividends and making us to live in agony.
