After several months of absence from the headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday stormed the place with a mission, asking the leadership of the party to either urgently resolve the crisis rocking the South West zone or be prepared to witness exodus of members including himself.
Meanwhile, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has urged South-South delegates to respect the zoning policy of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because of the zone’s demographic weakness and posterity.
Atiku accused President Goodluck Jonathan of wanting to bribe each delegate with N2 million if he had succeeded in the exclusion of local council chairmen, state lawmakers and party chairmen as delegates.
The former president, who arrived the PDP premises about 1:00p.m. dressed in sky blue outfit asked whether the national chairman was in the office and when told that he was, he walked straight to the second floor of Wadata Plaza where the chairman’s office is located.
The former president was joined by the Governor of Oyo State, Adebayo Alao-Akala and some other stalwarts of the party from Oyo, particularly those loyal to the camp of the governor of the state.
