The former president said, “I will never return to the PDP, just like a dog would never return to its vomit.”

The former President who reinstated that he has ended partisan politics, however, said that the decision does not affect his passion for Nigeria’s growth.

“I have said that publicly before and I will say it again: ‎for our democracy to thrive and continue to be strong, we need strong party in government and strong party in the opposition. It has to be that way, otherwise the party in government will get away with impunity and that is not good for democracy.

“I have said no partisan politics for me again. And not partisan politics but Nigeria is my passion until death do us part. Anything that concerns Nigeria, the good of Nigeria, you will see my involvement,” he said.

On his meeting with Makarfi, the former president said it was a meeting of two former colleagues.

‎”I have told the Chairman that I was in PDP before but not now. God forbid say when a dog vomits, it will go back to eat its vomit, no. I have said no partisan politics for me again and not partisan politics.
