A member of the and  Governor, has urged the
PDP family to go and apologize to ex-President
irrespective of his perceived shortcomings.

According to the PDP governor, Obsanjo was still father to the current
generation of politicians in the country because he made all of them,
including President Goodluck Jonathan.

Governor Lamido said: “Baba is more than a party man. He is an icon, a
national symbol and a leader and an inventor, a creator of all the
institutions today in . From the presidency to the governors who
are his own sons, are all his creations. 

“And so, when a father is angry with his own children, we will only say
we are sorry to him. But then we cannot be renounced for whatever it

He added that the former president’s DNA runs in all their blood, including that of the president.

Fielding questions from State House correspondents after a meeting with
President Jonathan at the presidential villa in Abuja, Governor Lamido
insisted on the need to apologise to Obasanjo as his children, if they
(the PDP family) fell short of his expectations.

Lamido’s position makes him the only PDP member who has pleaded Obj’s
cause, amidst the outpouring of criticisms that trailed his open show of
dumping of PDP and tearing of his membership card.
