How Obasanjo Destroyed PDP

How Obasanjo destroyed PDP (2)
By Ochereome Nnanna, Vanguard.

FORMER President Obasanjo, as we can see, used the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to rule Nigeria for eight years. As soon as he assumed office in 1999, he made up his mind to reduce Nigeria to a one-party state, his pet party system which he canvassed vigorously while Nigeria conducted its transition to civil rule programmes.
