Obj’s Letter To Jonathan Finally Tears PDP Apart

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is divided over whether or not former President Olusegun Obasanjo should be punished for anti-party activities. Some leaders of the party had been mooting the idea that Obasanjo should be punished for the letter he wrote to President Goodluck Jonathan.
 “Left to me, no individual should be bigger than the party. It is either you have a disciplined party, or no party at all. Would Obasanjo have tolerated what he is doing to the President while he was there? Any serious party must have disciplined members, particularly now that we are approaching an election year. 

“There should be no sentiments about this issue. No individual, I repeat, no individual, no matter how highly placed, should be above the party’s discipline.”
These where the words of a member of the NWC of PDP while speaking to Punch on the matter.

But many are against doing so, arguing that it was better to leave the matter as Obasanjo did the right thing.

Obasanjo, had, in a letter to Jonathan dated December 2, 2013, taken a swipe at the President, accusing him of causing a division in the party and failing to fight corruption. He also alleged that there were 1,000 Nigerians on Jonathan’s watch list.

In his reaction, another highly-placed member of the party’s NWC said:
“Whether we like it or not, Obasanjo has earned a position in our polity. He deserves some respect despite his shortcomings. There is no plan to punish him.”
