Olusegun Obasanjo, Nigeria’s former president, has quit the ruling People’s Democratic Party ahead of the March 28 elections. Obasanjo has been critical of President Jonathan. His exit is a major blow to the PDP, showing the divisions that have hit the party as it battles to extend its 15-year rule. Joining CNBC Africa to discuss this development is Opeyemi Agbaje, CEO of RTC Advisory.
