We’re re­solv­ing is­sues for Obasanjo to re­turn to PDP - Isi­aka

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

Ogun State gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) in the last gen­eral elec­tions, Mr. Gboyega Isi­aka, said the party is work­ing to re­solve the prob­lems that made for­mer pres­i­dent Oluse­gun Obasanjo to dump the party.

The for­mer pres­i­dent dumped the PDP and tore the party’s mem­ber­ship card in a dra­matic man­ner just be­fore the March/April gen­eral elec­tions, say­ing that he pre­ferred to be an el­der states­man and not a card car­ry­ing mem­ber of any po­lit­i­cal party.

But Isi­aka, yesterday, at the PDP na­tional sec­re­tar­iat, Abuja, said that Obasanjo would re­turn to the party as soon as the con­tentious is­sues were re­solved.

He said the for­mer pres­i­dent was in­dis­pens­able in the po­lit­i­cal cal­cu­la­tion of the coun­try, adding that even as he left the PDP, the party still con­sid­ered him as a fa­ther.
