Nigerian Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has dismissed reports that he attended a meeting with the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the party’s convention.
While reiterating his exit from the opposition party so it is impossible for him to return to a “divided, factionalized party gasping for breath.”
