I can sacrifice my life for Nigeria, not for PDP - Ex President Obasanjo

Former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a day before yesterday, on the 7th, said he can never sacrifice his life for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP but will freely lay down his life for the interest of Nigeria.

Obasanjo, a former Chairman, Board of Trustees of the PDP, stated this yesterday during a visit to his Hilltop residence in Abeokuta by the presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party, Dr. Martins Onovo.

Obasanjo said: "Let me make my own position clear, I am a card carrying member of PDP because that is the party on which platform I became the President of this country.

"My first pre-occupation is what is best for Nigeria. Nigeria first, party second and any other thing third. Nigeria first, mean I'll sacrifice anything for the interest of Nigeria and I can sacrifice my own life for the interest of Nigeria. I can't sacrifice my life for the interest of a party. I'll sacrifice my life for the interest of Nigeria.

"If what you're trying to do is in the best interest of Nigeria and Nigerians accepted and vote for you, who I am not to accept you as President of Nigeria. But what can I do in this your campaign to inform, woo and to convince the electorate. But whatever may be the outcome of the election after you have done all that, once the election is free and fair and undisturbed, uninterrupted, then you have to accept the verdict of the people."

I'm so sorry i've been MIA (Missing In Action) for a while now, it was unavoidable.
