Labels: National News
There was a mild drama on Friday at the Shehu Yar'Adua Center, Abuja, the venue of the inauguration Peoples Democratic Party, national convention committee, as former President Olusegun Obasanjo was sighted on the premises.
The former president was at the center to attend a programme on Agriculture while the PDP leaders were said to be at the premises to attend their party's function.
Obasanjo had on February 16, 2015, torn his PDP membership card, saying he was leaving the party for good.
Interestingly, leaders of the party rushed to pay homage to him when he was sighted at the premises.
Among those who had rushed out to greet him included its National Chairman in charge of the caretaker committee, Sen. Ahmed Markaffi, the Secretary of the committee, Ben Obi and former Deputy President of the Senate, Ibrahim Mantu.
The former president greeted them briefly and proceeded to attend the event he had went for.
Leaders of the party had been visiting its aggrieved members with the aim of reconciling them with now fictionalized but they are yet to visit the former president.
Members of the board of trustees of the party had visited immediate past President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and former Minister of finance Adamu Ciroma.
