Obasanjo said this when South-West PDP leaders led by the party’s National Vice Chairman (South West), Dr Eddy Olafeso visited him at his Pent-House residence inside Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
According to him, PDP lacks the commitment and goodwill to return the opposition party to its lost glory until itself of “bad eggs and hypocrites” as many of its leaders are after “their pockets and stomach.”
“I knew PDP would lose the election in 2015 because it was clear, and I knew PDP will need to be rebuilt after losing the election,” the former president told his guests,” he said.
“You need what I call a critical mass of committed people, and come rain, come shine they are committed. With that, you can make Nigeria better.
:You see peoples’ faces beautiful but you don’t know what each person harbours inside of him. If you discover a bad egg, remove such a person and if such person has learnt his or her lessons, there can still be room to accommodate the person.
“Politically speaking, you can’t be my friend if you don’t buy into Nigeria’s project. For me, till death, I will continue to push for a better Nigeria.”
