‘Obasanjo attended Zero Hunger in Africa meeting not PDP event’

United Bank for Africa

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo was at the Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja on Friday to attend a meeting of Zero Hunger in Africa-Nigeria chapter and not a meeting of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).

A photograph of the former president was wrongly captioned as having been seen arriving at the venue of the PDP meeting.

Obasanjo was at the centre for the Zero-hunger meeting and not for the PDP meeting, a party he openly left.

According to a statement by Mr Tunde Arosanyin of the Zero Hunger in Africa in Abuja on Saturday, it was just a coincidence that the two meetings were holding at the same venue.

”He came for zero hunger in Africa-Nigeria chapter meeting with commodity Association stakeholders.

”At closing, some PDP members came to greet him at the boardroom of the hunger meeting venue,” Arosanyin saidi.

PDP had on Friday, Aug. 5, inaugurated a convention committee ahead of the Aug. 17 convention in Port Harcourt.
