National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus has said he visited former President Olusegun in Abeokuta to discuss the situation of the country.

Saga Gist reported that Secondus was at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital for a closed-door meeting with the former President.

While addressing newsmen after the meeting that lasted more than an hour, the PDP Chairman said he came to Obasanjo as an elder statesman to advise the present government.

“I am here with the members of my team and as well as the PDP executives in Ogun State to tap from the wealth of Baba’s knowledge as a statesman. It been very difficult lately because Baba is a global personality, resolving issues across the world. In fact, the last place I learnt Baba visited was Afghanistan, despite the situation in that country, he went there and came back alive.

“ So, my team and I are very grateful and we give glory to God. We have discussed Nigeria. Nigeria first before any other thing. Yes, we belong to a political party, but if we don’t have a country, where do we practice democracy? We need to have a peaceful country where democracy can strive and at this point, we need Chief Obasanjo to come in with solutions.

“We are aware of the insecurity, the poor economy, banditry, kidnapping all over the country; and we can’t continue to watch without reaching out to the elders so that they can come to gather and advise the present government. That is the duty of a statesman, Secondus explained.

In his words, Obasanjo maintained that though the situation of Nigeria is very bad, it is not irredeemable.

He asked Nigerians to set aside partisanship and think of working together to save Nigeria from collapsing.
