Obasanjo Free To Leave PDP-Campaign Org.
The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO)
reacted yesterday to the departure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo
from the party, saying while he was free to leave, he did not have to spit
in their faces by publicly tearing the party card.
In a statement issued by Director of Media and Publicity, Chief Femi
Fani-Kayode, the PDPPCO said “Watching our party membership card being
torn up whilst President Obasanjo was standing there and smiling was
painful and tragic.
“This is a party which he helped to build and on whose platform he was
elected President for eight good years. The truth is that President
Obasanjo is far better and far bigger than that. Such behavior is
provocative and unacceptable.
“He is free to leave the party but does he have to spit in our faces by
tearing up our party card in public and before the television cameras?
“This knee-jerk reaction is most unlike President Obasanjo and it is very
insulting. It is clear that he has burnt all the bridges and that he has
left us forever.
“On a personal note I feel saddened by this but the truth is that many in
our party have heaved a huge sigh of relief. Many of us love President
Obasanjo and we shall continue to do so regardless of whether he is in our
party or not but tearing up that party card was too much to bear.
“It spoke volumes and it was indicative of the deep hatred and contempt
that he has for us and our cause. It reminded me of the biblical passage
in which King Saul rejected David and then planned to stop him from
ascending to the throne by attempting to kill and destroy him. Thankfully
the Lord was with David and not only did he deliver him from Saul but he
also crowned him King.”
