Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday urged Nigerians to pray that Nigeria doesn’t sink the way Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has completely collapsed. Obasanjo said this while speaking during his birthday.
He said the fortunes of the PDP began to sink when himself and Ahmadu Ali left the former ruling party.
“Ahmadu Ali is truthful and that was why I brought him to head the PDP and all went well when Ahmadu Ali was the national chairman. We were controlling 30 out of the 36 states. When Ahmadu and I left, the fortunes of the PDP began to sink. Whether you believe it or not, today’s PDP is sunk and gone. May the fortunes of Nigeria never sink like that of the PDP.”
“May the fortune of Nigeria never sink like that of the PDP,” he said as the audience responded with a thunderous, “Amen.”
