The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has asked Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders to seek the forgiveness of former President Olusegun Obasanjo if they want to reposition the party.
The monarch said the crisis in PDP was caused by the curse of Obasanjo on the party before the 2015 polls.
Oba Akiolu states this in Lagos at the Eko Club celebration of Lagos at 50 and international day of indigenous people.
“It is Obasanjo that cursed the PDP. They should go and seek for his forgiveness. There won’t be peace in PDP until you beg Obasanjo. It is only Lagos State that the PDP cannot win because the ancestors of Lagos will not allow that,” he said.
He told PDP leaders to visit Obasanjo and seek his forgiveness if they want crisis in the party to end.
Obasanjo at the peak of his dissatisfaction on how PDP was being run tore his membership card and predicted its death.
PDP caretaker committee last Tuesday in Abuja had set up a committee headed by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and Chief Tom Ikimi, to woo Obasanjo and other former top members who quit the party on the eve of 2015 polls.
