Obasanjo No Longer A Member Of PDP?Read The Letter He Wrote Announcing That He Is Withdrawing From All Activities

The trend of writing open letters does not seem to have ended just yet, they keep coming in Baba Iyabo has written another one and this time around it is not addressed to the president. Olusegun Obasanjo has written another open letter to the national chairman of his political party PDP  Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, in this letter he informed the chairman that he would no longer be an active member of the party until a certain member of the party that he referred to as a criminal is removed from the party.


Read the full letter below:

Dear Chairman,
“While I believe that a good and truly national political party must be a microcosm of the nation in its membership, made up of all sorts of characters from near-saints to near-satan, I also believe that on no account should a known habitual criminal that is wanted abroad to face criminal charges levelled against him be extolled as a political leader in a respectable and wholesome nation-building political party.
“ Buruji Kashamu has been so extolled in PDP in South-West geo-political zone which I personally find unsavoury. Politics played by any national political party must have morality, decency, discipline, principles and leadership examples as cardinal practices of the party. I have attached here recent documents that clearly indicate that your extolled PDP Zonal Leader in the South-West zone of Nigeria and an indigene of Ogun State is, to say the least, not a credit to the party as a member, let alone being a zonal leader.
“Since I stick in my practice of party politics to the hallowed and cherished principles enunciated above, I take this opportunity to let you know that while I continue to remain a card-carrying member of PDP, I cannot and I will not subscribe to a wanted habitual criminal being installed as my zonal leader in the party; a criminal for whom extradition has been requested by the US government. In the meantime, I will consider withdrawing my activity with PDP at local, state, zonal and national levels until the anomalous and shameful situation is corrected.”
Thank you.
Yours Sincerely,


Olusegun Obasanjo
