Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has described President Olusegun Obasanjo’s response to the letter from his party Chairman, Chief Audu Ogbeh, as an embarrassing catalogue of self-indictment which does not adequately answer to the issues raised by the party chairman. Meanwhile, more troubles await Chief Ogbeh and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party as a motion on notice for the immediate suspension of the committee and the appointment of a caretaker committee in its stead will be moved today at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja. Former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), plans to visit Anambra with a view to brokering peace between Governor Chris Ngige and his god-farther, Chief Chris Ubah, South-East coordinator of the IBB presidential campaign machinery, Chief Peter Ogbogu, said in Abuja yesterday.
