Former Nigerian President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has reiterated his decision to step back from active engagement in partisan politics. He made it clear that his association with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is now a thing of the past, signaling his departure from the realm of party politics.

This declaration was made during the unveiling ceremony of the VIP lodge at the Osun State Government House in Osogbo on Sunday. In his address, Obasanjo commended the efforts of Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke in promoting unity within the PDP and fostering cohesion among its members in the state.

Highlighting the importance of unity within the party, Obasanjo remarked, “The developments I’ve witnessed during my recent stay here are commendable. I’ve previously advised that while you engage in the political dance, your focus should remain steadfast on governance and progress.”

While acknowledging his past ties to the party, he also noted Governor Adeleke’s recent initiatives, including a meeting with party leaders such as Senator Olu Alabi, Alhaji Fatai Akinbade, and former Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola. Emphasizing the value of inclusivity, Obasanjo encouraged the governor to actively involve all stakeholders for the mutual benefit of the party, the state, and the nation as a whole.

Obasanjo’s statement underscores his commitment to maintaining political neutrality while advocating for a collaborative approach to governance and party affairs.
