Obasanjo wished us well in APC - Bode Mustapha

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ke­hinde Akinyemi, Abeokuta

For­mer Pres­i­dent, Chief Oluse­gun Obasanjo has re­port­edly wished his Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) loy­al­ists in Ogun state good luck in the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) party.

The for­mer Na­tional Au­di­tor of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) and sup­porter of the for­mer BoT chair­man, Chief Bode Mustapha made this dis­clo­sure in a chat with news­men dur­ing the State Congress of the APC in Abeokuta.

Mustapha also de­scribed the Labour Party (LP) as an ap­pendage of the rul­ing party, which would col­lapse in no dis­tant time, hence his de­ci­sion to team up with the ma­jor op­po­si­tion APC.

Mustapha who was re­moved from of­fice via court rul­ing, along­side, for­mer Osun state gover­nor, Prince Ola­gun­soye Oyin­lola last year, hinted that he did not con­sult Obasanjo, but, said Obasanjo was aware of his de­ci­sion to join the APC and wished him well.

“He did not di­rect us to join the APC and was not con­sulted, but, he wished us good luck when we in­formed him of our de­ci­sion to leave. I am old enough to take de­ci­sions by my­self and that is just it.”

The for­mer PDP stal­wart, who was adorned in the APC uni­form at the state congress held at the Cul­tural Cen­tre, Abeokuta, last Satur­day, said, he had de­cided to join the APC, “be­cause, it is a na­tional party, and the party is on the verge of tak­ing over the coun­try’s demo­cratic strata in 2015.”
