Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has disclosed the outcome of his meeting with factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Modu Sheriff.

He said this on Saturday at his Abeokuta Presidential Hilltop residence in an interview with journalists, after emerging from the closed-door meeting.

He said, “And, as they all want to say now, ‘well, you were once the father of PDP’, I was once the leader, for eight years. I was the leader of PDP but the PDP that I was the leader of is not the PDP of today.

“The PDP of today, if you can talk of a party again as PDP, its soul has been taken out of it and those who allowed that to happen are, unfortunately, either in the country or out of the country unperturbed about the fate of the party and indeed the fate of the country.

“I have said to my brother (Sheriff), that I wish him well in the dying baby they have  put on his laps, because PDP is in comatose and he was of course not in the PDP, he has never been in the PDP until now.”

The former president who reiterated his non-partisan stance, said he didn’t belong to any political party, Sheriff’s faction nor any other faction of the PDP.
