I'm Not Part Of Jonathan Or Atiku-Led PDP ––Says Obasanjo
Obasanjo had told Jonathan one-on-one to forget contesting in 2015 in order to allow peace reign in party, but Jonathan told him that his people want him to contest again.
Reiterating his boss' position, Obasanjo's chief of staff, Deacon Victor Durodola, said:
“He does not belong to any faction of the party; he is a leader of the PDP. Baba is a former President of the country under the platform of PDP, former chairman, Board of Trustees of the party, you don’t expect him to belong to any faction of the party.
"As far as he is concerned, PDP is one and what is happening is a disagreement within the PDP family; it is a family affair which will soon come to an end. Baba is a mediator and you don’t expect a mediator to take sides in a feud.
"Those who are insinuating that Baba belongs to one faction or the other are missing it. It is his wish that peace and unity return to the party and that is what he is working on till this hour."
