Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has re-assured Nigerians that he is still a card-carrying member of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) despite his 'stepping aside' from the party activities due to the internal politics.Obasanjo disclosed this statement when 'ambushed' by some journalists at the end of the press conference preceeding the one year Anniversary Gala of Olusegun Obasanjo Foundation (OOF) in London.

The organisers of the press conference earlier warned journalists not to ask questions outside OOF programmes for Africa.At the end of the press conference, as the former President was leaving the main hall, a mild drama happened between Obasanjo and 'news-hungry' journalists.'Sir,what is your agenda for the future in Nigeria?"Obasanjo replied: "Please read my open letter once again to know
."'Your Excellency Sir,we need to ask you if you're joining the APC anytime soon since you're no longer a PDP member?"
Obasanjo waited for some minutes to gather his thoughts and then responded:
"What type of question are you asking me?I am still a card-carrying member of PDP."
The said journalist further provoked the former President Obasanjo to shed more light on the latest developments within the party and to express his personal opinion about the new PDP Chairman Muazu.
Obasanjo responded with bottled anger in the presence of some of the OOF officials.
"Do you understand English language at all?I am still a PDP member.Maybe you're not feeling well for asking me such a question."
