Obasanjo Writes Another 1-Page Letter To Tukur, Resigns From PDP


This is indeed a season of letter writings. This time again, it is from Former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the Chairman of the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.

In the letter, Obasanjo wrote that he would temporarily cease to be a member of the PDP and would be opting out of every activities of the party at every level.

According to a report by a news media, National Mirror, Obasanjo’s decision to resign from PDP is hinged on what he described as the handing over of the authority of the party, in the South-West, and particularly, his home state, Ogun, to the chairman of the South West PDP Mobilisation and Organisation Committee, Buruji Kashamu who he declared as ‘unfit for any leadership post in the party’. The former president described Kashamu as a drug baron who has cases to answer in the United States of America. The sources said the former president said with such a person as Kashamu in the leadership position of the party, he had no choice but to opt out pending when the anomaly, among others, is corrected.

Obasanjo had earlier written an 18-page open letter to President Jonathan where he lambasted him for promoting corruption, ineptitude and accused him of promoting agenda capable of tearing the country apart.
