He said Nigerians should never forget that the party set the country on a course of ruin.

Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, has urged Nigerians to never allow themselves to forget the years when the People's Democratic Party (PDP) badly mismanaged the country so as to prevent the same 'ugliness' from rising again.

While speaking at a press conference on Thursday, May 10, 2018, the former president, who led Nigeria between 1999 and 2007 on the platform of the PDP, said Nigerians may accpet the party's recent apology but should never forget that the party set the country on a course of ruin.

In March, PDP national chairman, Uche Secondus,  tendered an unreserved apology to Nigerians for the party's failure to live up to expectations during its 16 years reign before the 2015 presidential election which was lost to Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives' Congress (APC).

"The PDP was in power for 16 years and as expected, we made mistakes. We are sorry for our mistakes and when we return, we shall make this country better," he said.

While speaking on Thursday, Obasanjo said the party's apology is incomplete because it still has alleged sinners holding leadership positions without consequence.
