Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo, on Tuesday said former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s party membership card which was torn on his instruction was an expired
Oladipo made this known in Abuja while receiving some student union leaders under the aegis of Student Mobilisation Network Group (SMNG).
The PDP Scribe explained that the torn card was the one issued by the party’s former acting National Chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Barage, and not the one issued by its current leadership.
While hosting the executive members of PDP in his ward in his Abeokuta home, Obasanjo had directed the Chairman of the party in the ward, Alhaji Usman Oladunjoye, to tear the card.
“Baba is 80 and my mother is around Obasanjo’s age and when you reach that age, you do things that only you can explain.
“Secondly, you will see that Baba did not tear our card. “He asked somebody to do the tearing and I am assuring you that the card that was torn was not the current PDP card.
“The current PDP card is signed by Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu and Prof. Wale Oladipo; so, the card he tore
was a Barage card, which we are going to destroy after all,” he said.
On the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, Oladipo
said that Buhari was not qualified to be president of the country.
He said that while President Goodluck Jonathan had insisted on crushing act of insurgents in the country, the APC presidential candidate said he would bring Boko Haram under control.
