Former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has said that the crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would have been speedily resolved if former president, Olusegun Obasanjo was still a member of the party.

Obasanjo publicly and dramatically announced his exit from the PDP in February 2015 when he permitted a loyalist to tear his membership card to shreds.

Daniel made the comment during a recent radio interview in Abeokuta, the state capital.

“It is not only the PDP that has crisis, the APC also has its own share of crisis. The only difference is that while, we in the PDP have not been able to manage our own, the APC has been able to manage their own,” Daniel said according to Vanguard.

“If it were the time President Olusegun Obasanjo was still in the party, we would have gone to him and one way or the other, he would have resolved the crisis. Currently, there are many local champions in the party. The party does no longer have a spirit,” he added.
