Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is not a member of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), National Chairman of the party, Ralph Nwosu, has revealed.
The ADC chairman said this in Osogbo on Saturday while addressing members of the party at the national convention of the party holding in the town.
Nwosu, however, said that the former President was only advising and guiding the party on what to do and how to build a strong and disciplined party.
He said, “Let me state this, former President Olusegun Obasanjo is not a member of the ADC. But he has chosen to guide us and to advise us, so that we will no go the way of other political parties.
“Obasanjo is a highly influential former President and he is on a first name basis with most world leaders and former presidents. It is a good thing to have such a person guiding us. There is no person that has such influence like him. We went somewhere one time and there were over 12 African presidents on a queue waiting to discuss with him. We are lucky to have him.”
Nwosu called on the people of Osun State to troop out next Saturday and vote for Fatai Akinbade, the governorship candidate of the ADC in the state and his running mate, Justice Olamide Oloyede ( retd).
He stated that Oloyede, stood on the side of the people and risked her job by defending the people, saying the people of the state should not disappoint a judge who was sacked for defending their rights.
