Ogun PDP expels Obasanjo

 Abeokuta – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun on Monday announced the expulsion of former President Olusegun Obasanjo from the party.

The PDP Chairman in the state, Mr Bayo Dayo, announced the expulsion at the party’s secretariat in Abeokuta.

“The leaders and members of the PDP family in Ogun state hereby state categorically that as from Monday, Feb. 16, Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo stands expelled and excommunicated from the party,’’ he said.

The party’s chairman said the expulsion followed the “unabated anti -party activities’’ of Obasanjo.

“ His ward 11, Abeokuta North Local Government, had earlier sent a letter dated Feb. 12 expressing serious concerns at his numerous anti-party activities and uncomplimentary utterances targeted at the leader of the party, President Goodluck Jonathan.

“It is ironic that this is the same Obasanjo, who when he was president, neither tolerated nor accepted any opinion, suggestion or criticism during his tenure,’’ he said.

The chairman said the implication of the expulsion included the loss of all rights and privileges previously enjoyed by Obasanjo in the party.

“The general public, especially the media, are to take note that whatever Obasanjo does or says must no longer be seen from the prism of a PDP leader.

“Members of the public, zonal organs of our party and the National Executive Committee of the PDP are to take note of the expulsion,“he said. (NAN)
