Obasanjo tore an expired party card – PDP

According to the National Secretary of the PDP, Professor Adewale
Oladipo, the PDP membership card torn by former President Olusegun
Obasanjo on February 16th had long expired as it was signed by a former
acting chairman of the party, Alhaji Abubakar Baraje who is now a
chieftain in the APC.

According to Professor OLadipo, Chief Obasanjo is over 80 years old
and there are certain actions people of his age take that they
themselves can’t explain. Prof Oladiposaid this while speaking to a
group of students who came to show their solidarity for President
Jonathan at the party’s National secretariat in Abuja yesterday.

“Baba is over 80 and my mother is around
Obasanjo’s age. 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 ostensibly 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 Mu’azu and Professor Oladipo. So the card he tore
was a Baraje card, which we were going to destroy anyway. So I think
Baba started it. Lastly, Baba is a very intelligent man. When Baba was
helping us, he knew that a lot of people could have complained that
they could have voted for PDP but Baba was there. You know when a big
tree exists in a big forest, smaller trees cannot grow. If that big
tree leaves, 10 to 20 smaller trees will grow. In politics, one big
tree has a vote, while 20 small trees have 20 votes. If you do the
arithmetic, I am a scientist, I know that head or tail, it is a win win
situation for PDP,” 

he said.
