The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, has disclosed the details of his meeting with former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
The embattled chairman of the PDP noted that he met with the elder statesman to discuss the situation of the country.
Naija News had earlier reported that the PDP Chairman had a meeting with Obasanjo at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Secondus while addressing newsmen after the closed-door meeting said he visited Obasanjo to advise the present government.
He said, “I am here with the members of my team and as well as the PDP executives in Ogun State to tap from the wealth of Baba’s knowledge as a statesman. It been very difficult lately because Baba is a global personality, resolving issues across the world. In fact, the last place I learnt Baba visited was Afghanistan, despite the situation in that country, he went there and came back alive.”
“So, my team and I are very grateful and we give glory to God. We have discussed Nigeria. Nigeria first before any other thing. Yes, we belong to a political party, but if we don’t have a country, where do we practice democracy? We need to have a peaceful country where democracy can strive and at this point, we need Chief Obasanjo to come in with solutions.”
“We are aware of the insecurity, the poor economy, banditry, kidnapping all over the country; and we can’t continue to watch without reaching out to the elders so that they can come to gather and advise the present government. That is the duty of a statesman.”
