Obasanjo Withdraws His Activities With PDP! Fires Another Open Letter!!
In a new letter, this time to the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, President Olusegun Obasanjo gave a notice of his withdrawal from the activities of the party.
According to him, PDP had been negating the principles of morality, decency and discipline in its
decisions, especially as they affect the South West where he comes from.
In the letter, dated January 7, 2014, obtained by Saturday Tribune, Obasanjo accused the party leadership of imposing someone who he described as a criminal wanted abroad, on the party as its South West zonal leader and proceeded to add that he was forwarding with the letter, “recent documents” on the alleged activities of the person.
According to a Tribune's source at the national secretariat of the party, the letter was received in Tukur's office on Wednesday, 8 January, 2014.
It is believed that President Jonathan also got his own copy on Thursday.
