Talks With Obasanjo Not Regarding Politics – Falae

Chief Olu Falae

National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Olu Falae, says he is not in talks with former President Olusegun Obasanjo as far as politics is concerned.

The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation had met with Obasanjo about two months ago where it was expected that the former President would adopt the SDP.

However, Obasanjo adopted the African Democratic Congress (ADC) to the surprise of many.

Speaking with journalists shortly after meeting chairmen of 36 political parties in Abuja on Wednesday, Falae said he had only gone to see Obasanjo in Abeokuta and no one should expect any further talks.

He said, “I paid a private visit to my former boss, Gen. Obasanjo. You may not know because many of you are very young. When he was military head of state, I was his permanent secretary, working directly with him from 1977 to 1979. So, it was a semi-private visit and there is no continuing dialogue.”

Falae called on aggrieved members of the APC, especially members of the National Assembly, to join hands with the SDP in moving the nation forward.

He said the SDP would continue to meet with everyone that was interested in the prosperity of Nigeria.
