I am a statesman, I don't belong to any party - Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said he remains a ‘party-less Nigerian’ and will continue to be a statesman.
He said this on Monday at his Abeokuta Hilltop residence when a delegation from Kogi State, led by the state Governor, Captain Idris Wada (retd.), paid him a courtesy call, Punch gathered.                            
The former President, who was the a chairman, Board of Trustees, Peoples Democratic Party, said despite not playing active partisan politics anymore, he would continue to work with any Nigerian with capabilities of good intention and leadership traits.
He said, “We should understand first that not the party makes the person, but the person makes the party. It is who you are that you bring into the party.
“For now, I remain a partyless Nigerian, but I will continue to welcome any Nigerian with good leadership qualities.
“It does not matter which party you are, either PDP, APC, Labour, APGA or any party at all; as long as you are a committed, sincere and a purposeful leader, I am ready for you.”
