Obasanjo Shuns PDP, Jonathan Reconciliation Again by vjsmiles: 6:09am On Feb 22, 2015
There were indications on Friday that former President Olusegun Obasanjo might have shunned a peace move by the Peoples Democratic Party and President Goodluck Jonathan.

Sunday PUNCH reliably gathered that as part of the President’s visit to Ogun State on Friday, Jonathan and the leadership of the PDP had planned to meet with the former President.

It was, however, learnt that the former president, who had got wind of the peace move, travelled to Gambia on Thursday.

It was not clear whether the ex-President had plans to attend the Gambia event before Jonathan’s visit.

Investigations revealed that Obasanjo would have been part of the closed-door meeting Jonathan had with some Ogun State traditional rulers on Friday, but for his absence from the country.

An aide of the former president, who pleaded anonymity because Obasanjo did not mandate him to speak on the issue, explained his (Obasanjo’s) main grouse with Jonathan.

He said that the major problem the former president had with Jonathan and the PDP was the promotion of a chieftain of the party, Mr. Buruji Kashamu.

“I can tell you authoritatively that Baba’s (Obasanjo) problem with the President and the PDP is the promotion of Kashamu,” he said.

The aide recalled that Obasanjo had in 2014 written a letter to the then PDP Chairman, Dr. Bamanga Tukur, complaining about Kashamu’s membership of the party.

In the letter dated 7 January, 2014, Obasanjo said he would, temporarily, cease to be a member of the party by withdrawing from its activities because Kahamu had been extolled as a party leader.

“I will consider withdrawing my activity with PDP at local, state, zonal and national levels until the anomalous and shameful situation is corrected,” he had said.

The aide said rather than address Obasanjo’s complaint, the PDP had appointed Kashamu the Chairman of its Mobilisation Committee in the South-West.

Kashamu has also won the PDP senatorial ticket for the Ogun-East Senatorial District.

Obasanjo had on Monday dumped the PDP and directed the party Chairman in Ward 11, Abeokuta North, Mr. Usman Oladunjoye, to tear his membership card.

The Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido and the PDP National Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, had on Wednesday met in Abuja as part of efforts to convince Obasanjo to return to the ruling party.

Another Presidential staff, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that the former President because of his annoyance with President Jonathan, deliberately decided to travel out of Abeokuta to avoid meeting him on Friday.

He said the former Chairman of BoT was aware of the official assignment of the President in his state but chose to travel.

“You can see that he deliberately avoided the President, who he even almost single-handedly made President. That’s not good enough,” he added.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Olisa Metuh said the party had not foreclosed reconciliation with the former President.

Metuh told our correspondent that the party would find a way of appeasing him.

Metuh said, “The former President remains a revered member of our party; he is a statesman who led our party to two victories consecutively.

“Because of our respect for him having being the chairman of our BoT and a former President, we won’t allow him leave us like that.

“We agree with Lamido that we should not allow him leave like that. We will do everything within our power to bring him back.

“We still believe that he would work for our Presidential candidate and all other candidates of the party during the forthcoming elections.”

Asked how the party would go about it, Metuh merely said that “we would do everything within our democratic rights to being Baba back to the PDP.”

Also speaking on the issue, a former spokesperson for the party, who was also a former Minister of Environment, Mr. John Odeyemi, said the party has a mechanism through which he said it revolves its crises.

“We would resolve the matter in our own way, because the party has a mechanism through which it resolves its crises and settles such matters,” he added.

I thought Mr clerk and many PDP goons say they won't miss him, why are you trying to beg someone you won't miss.
GEJ the only president that still like a$$es even while in power, he's still a boy boy to many people, beg this one today, beg that one tomorrow.

If obj don jump ship, the ship is about to sink already. He has seen pdp as a ship that's sinking under gej and decided to jump, so, don't force him back. Obj does not identify with failure/loss/defeat, and this is what he has 'foreseen' for gej/pdp in the next election.
Infact, in 2011 , he refused to support bankole despite openly kneeling down before obj to beg cos he has seen what was imminent then. Again, even iyabo at that time couldn't get his full support cos of what he thought was going to be the outcome of the election and, she did lose also.

we love the story like puccy especially when it shows how ungrateful gej is to have made those that helped him to the top his sworn enemies. Nothing depicts a man's downfall than seeing him fight his once known allies and friends.

Being truthful when you know it will cost you, is the true test of honesty. OBJ has expressed his take on Jonathan's failed Presidency, Jonathan desperate attempts is a waste of Time. Spend that energy packing you load.

One thing I don't understand about the president is why he thinks politics at the national level is like some idle banter in a beer parlour where one could use some little praise singing to score himself a couple of bottles from the guy sitting next to him. I wonder why he thinks some infantile overture like calling Obj "father" and himself a "political son" can pacify the old man after all he has done.

Mr president, get this clear; Obj cannot and will not work with Kashamu!! If you wanna make peace that is where you should start from. Period!

PDP know they have a lot to lose in this game of war but those few that re milking Gej will not allow him to see reality in this. If GEJ is assured of his performance, he needs not running from pillar to pole to gain people's sympathy. I say it that any one that bite the finger that fed him will surely pay for it. PDP keep on doing permutation about winning election not knowing the feeling of people about this government. Let election comes, they will all hide their face in shame.

Re: Obasanjo Shuns PDP, Jonathan Reconciliation Again by Flets: 7:54am On Feb 22, 2015
I repeat. ..PDP doesn't need Obj.

All PDP antics are aimed at appeasing Obj's followership and not Obj himself.

Read between the lines... , PDP cannot afford to give OBJ a pivotal role at this time. They are only playing smart, you dont want to be seen playing publicly dirty with a man who has nothing to lose. They will continue to play this game with Obj till after elections.

All Obj needs is for GEJ to replace Sambo with Sule Lamido.... and that aint happening.
