Ogun PDP advises FG to sack Obasanjo’s loyalists


ABEOKUTA—The Ogun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged the Federal Government to strip former associates of ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo who are holding “some strategic and sensitive positions” in the government.

In a statement issued yesterday by its Publicity Secretary, Waliu Oladipupo, the party said: “Although a good number of them have turned down the former President’s directive that they join the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ogun State, they cannot continue to hold sensitive board appointments in a PDP-led Federal Government and be working against the interest of the party.”

The party appealed to its national leadership and the Federal Government to withdraw all the goodwill and patronage that had hitherto accrued to “Obasanjo and his associates”, courtesy of the PDP-led Federal Government, adding that, “To do otherwise would be tantamount to arming your opponents.”
