Former president and former Chairman of Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who hosted some party leaders loyal to him Monday at his hilltop residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, refused to speak with journalists who had waited for over four hours to know what the meeting was all about.
All the party stalwarts from the former President’s caucus were in Abeokuta for a closed door meeting which lasted for about four hours and after the meeting, Obasanjo declined to speak to all the journalists about the outcome.
Our correspondent gathered that the meeting was called by the faction ahead of the purported peace meeting about to be called by Chief Tony Amenih, the party’s current BoT chairman.
Crisis has continued to rock PDP nationwide and the efforts of the party’s National Chairman, Bamanga Tukur, to reconcile the warring factions have not yielded any positive result as realignment of forces for the 2015 elections gathers steam.
