Mu’azu meets Obasanjo over Ogun PDP crisis

The new PDP chairman met with the former president in Abeokuta

The newly appointed National Chairman of the troubled Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adamu Mu’ azu, on Sunday met with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, in a bid to resolve the party’s crisis in Mr. Obasanjo’s Ogun State.

The PDP leader arrived the Ogun State capital, Abeokuta, at about 3.00pm and drove straight to Mr. Obasanjo’s hilltop mansion located along the presidential boulevard where the duo held a closed-door meeting.

The meeting, which lasted over two hours, had in attendance Mr. Obasanjo’s former aide and serving senator, Andy Uba, as well as key members of the crisis-ridden Ogun state PDP including the party’s deposed national auditor, Bode Mustapha.

Details of the meeting were not made public, but party members who attended the meeting said the visit was not unconnected with the crisis rocking the state chapter of the party over which Mr. Obasanjo suspended his participation at party functions.

The party’s governorship aspirant in the state, Kayode Amusan, who was also at the meeting, said the new PDP chairman was expected to reach out to all important members of the party in order to resolve the party’s festering crisis at the state level.

“Let me tell you the moment somebody comes on board, he has been brought to come and rectify and put in order all the anomalies in the party. So, you should expect what he is doing. No matter what the disagreement, there is need for him to go round and put things together,” he said.

On the likelihood of resolving the crisis in the Ogun state chapter of the party, Mr. Amusan said “the issues of the past are still lingering, you all know where the party structure is. The new chairman will have to look into that”.
