January 11, 2014 – Obasanjo Leaves PDP, Blames Party For Making Buruji Kashamu A Leader

Ex-Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo has left the People’s Democratic Party, PDP weeks after his secret meeting with the leaders of APC (All Progressive Congress) party.

In an open letter dated January 7th, 2014, Obasanjo poured out his heart to PDP Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur for making Buruji Kashamu, the zonal leader of the party.

In the 3-paragraph open letter, Obasanjo tagged Kashamu a criminal who is unqualified for the position given to him.

Declaring Kashamu as unfit for any leadership post in the party, Obasanjo called him a drug dealer who is wanted in the US.

Read Obasanjo’s quit notice below:

Dear Chairman,

“While I believe that a good and truly national political party must be a microcosm of the nation in its membership, made up of all sorts of characters from near-saints to near-satan, I also believe that on no account should a known habitual criminal that is wanted abroad to face criminal charges levelled against him be extolled as a political leader in a respectable and wholesome nation-building political party.

“ Buruji Kashamu has been so extolled in PDP in South-West geo-political zone which I personally find unsavoury. Politics played by any national political party must have morality, decency, discipline, principles and leadership examples as cardinal practices of the party. I have attached here recent documents that clearly indicate that your extolled PDP Zonal Leader in the South-West zone of Nigeria and an indigene of Ogun State is, to say the least, not a credit to the party as a member, let alone being a zonal leader.

“Since I stick in my practice of party politics to the hallowed and cherished principles enunciated above, I take this opportunity to let you know that while I continue to remain a card-carrying member of PDP, I cannot and I will not subscribe to a wanted habitual criminal being installed as my zonal leader in the party; a criminal for whom extradition has been requested by the US government. In the meantime, I will consider withdrawing my activity with PDP at local, state, zonal and national levels until the anomalous and shameful situation is corrected.”

Thank you.

Yours Sincerely,
Olusegun Obasanjo

I see Obasanjo joining APC soon.

    Goodluck is a failure now, a heavy disappointment.who would it be dat wount be offended? He is neither for d poor masses dat voted for him, nor is he for d bigger caccues like obasanjo dat pressed button for him to become d prezido. On 2015 APC wil take over am sure, but already he is a made man bcos this 50 billion pounds which they just stole, an amount which Abramovick used to buy Torres. **wink** Lol

    Thanks OBJ . Truth must be told . it is obvious that wNigeria living in western world share different ideas to homa based . I was surprised bt the comment of few Nigeria on Linda ikeji . Many youth in Nigeria do not see sense in what this man is saying , it is very wrong to be lead by criminals. Most of the leaders in Nigeria a re criminal s, phadophile with fake certificates , yet some of the us do not see anything wrong in it . For example , look out what is happening in Mexico , it is as a result of criminals as a leaders.
    How can you make a drug barron as a leader, ibori also a cxriminal in the prison, stella for forgery , , the bayelsa thug that wasrecently released from prison and parading himself as a mini god. Is this not evidence that Jonathan is a failure . Pls wake up Nigeria . i enjoyed the issue of open letter , it really helped us to know what is going on in our country
    All this stupid leaders come abroad and have children in universities here .Yet they do not learn from these countries . It is high time we all wake up

    GEJ is the best president this Nation has ever produced. Desaia and their likes will realise this very late. Obasanjo can join any party of his choice. He is creating chaos and confusion….
