Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as a party already in intensive care unit and may soon die like the Peoples Democratic Party, which he said was already in the hands of undertakers preparatory for burial. The ex-president was however, quick to add that a ‘third force’ (a political party) will soon emerge.
Obasanjo made the remark Friday while receiving members of a political association, The National Patriots’ Movement of Nigeria (NPMN), led by the national coordinator, Chief Dosu Oladipo at his Abeokuta Hilltop resident in Abeokuta, Ogun State Capital according to Sunday Tribune.
At the meeting, which lasted about five hours, were more than 70 eminent politicians drawn from across the states in the South-West.
The purpose of the meeting, the paper gathered, was to inform the former president of the aim of the group and seek his elderly advice.
The former leader used the occasion of the visit to bare his mind on the debate of the possible emergence of a third force, as the march towards 2019 general election gains momentum.
