Tony Anenih

By Olanrewaju Ajao                 The dramatic exit of former President Olusegun Obasanjo from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is already generating reactions from the top echelon of the party.
Reacting, the party’s Board of Trustees Chairman, Tony Anenih, dismissed the development as good riddance to bad rubbish.
Obasanjo had earlier in the day torn his PDP membership card publicly and announced his formal exit from the party.
Anenih, who spoke to State House Correspondents after a meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday said Obasanjo has the right to join any party he so desires.
“He (Obasanjo) has the right to leave any party, and he has the right to join any party, he is a Nigerian” Anenih said.
Asked if PDP would miss Obasanjo, Anenih replied, saying “why should we miss him.”
Asked if the former president was not a big loss to the party, the BoT chairman said “to us leaders it is not a loss.”
