We Will Not Miss Obasanjo In PDP, Says Anenih

Following the public tearing to shred by former President Olusegun Obasanjo of his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card, the Party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) Chairman, Chief Tony Anenih said the action of the former president was an indication that he has left the party and he would not be missed.

Anenih spoke briefly on Monday in a short interview with State House correspondents.

The BoT chairman told journalists that Obasanjo can join any party he so desires to join.

“He (Obasanjo) has the right to leave any party, and he has the right to join any party; he is a Nigerian” Anenih said.

Asked if PDP would miss Obasanjo, Anenih replied: “Why should we miss him?”

Asked if the former president was not a big loss to the party, the BoT chairman said: “To us leaders it is not a loss.”

The former president had been at loggerheads with President Goodluck Jonathan, resulting in the duo engaging in the exchange tirades.

Obasanjo had been criticall on Jonathan’s style of governance fueling speculations that he is sympathetic to All Progressives Congress (APC)
