Another PDP member tears party’s membership card

Hours after a former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, resigned from the Peoples Democratic Party and tore his membership card, another top member of the party has followed suit.

Abdullahi Muhammad, the senior special assistant on security to the governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwambo, openly tore his membership card in the state capital, Gombe, on Tuesday morning, citing dissatisfaction with the manner the country was being run as his reason.

He specifically alleged that only a few of the large population of Nigeria were benefiting from the nation’s finances.

He is believed to have joined the All Progressives Congress.

It is not known how long Mr. Muhammadu had been a member of the ruling party though he was one of its active members in the North East state. It could not also be established when he was appointed an aide to Mr. Dankwambo, who assumed office in 2011.

Efforts to reach the media aide to the governor, Junaidu Usman, to confirm the development failed.

Mr. Obasanjo, who was the country’s president between 1999 and 2007, had on Monday in Abeokuta, announced his resignation from the PDP and directed the party’s chairman in the ward to tear his membership card.

The former president, who had repeatedly criticised President Goodluck Jonathan over his style, was not only the leader of the party when he in office but became its Board of Trustees Chairman in 2007 when he left power.

Obj that his candidate for house speaker lost to tambuwal? Obj that his son accused of sleeping with his wife? Obj that his daughter disowned and called him a liar and a hypocrite and selfish? The same obj has power? You must be smoking something!

      • Ephraim

        U na never see anything yet.

        • evi

          • hardfact

            your ranting will not help. PDP is dead. leave now b4 u go down with it.
            if OBJ has no power or influence ask ur dumb self why every of his actions generate so much furore? from his letters to his comments to his book to his press interviews and now PDP card tearing!!! u cant run away from the truth it shall catch up with u !

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        If that is how you perceive power and influence, then I am afraid you have no idea of the concept and its use.

        It goes beyond the obvious and inane.

        • evi

          Your stupidity and rambling is obvious and inane.what other way do you perceive power and influence if not for its use or abuse? If obj claims he is powerful or influential or even relevant, how come all the candidates he backed or endorsed lost? How come he has no respect even in his town, ,how come his own family despise him? Please give us your own version of the concept of power And influence.

      • Andel

        If you doubt OBJ get power then u be baby for Nigeria politics.. All PDP governors today are product of OBJ system inputting even your so called proud president GEJ.. OBJ losing in his ward is just him letting it go and not venture into local politics.. OBJ endorsement of candidate does not tend to mean he wants you there Oooooo. If OBJ wants you in a position he will take it up himsef.. OBJ daughter already enjoyed her father importance to becom a senator witout winning 1 vote .. going for re-election no concern am .. Afterall na same useless daughter accuse am of being a useless father after giving her senate and saving her ass from EFCC.. OBJ sleeping with his son wife? I am happy u did not say *RAPE*… D son wife consented to it and seduce her father in-law to sleep with her instead of her useless husband and yet Nigeria blame the old man… How many pple girlfriend or wife to be u don sleep wit ? Hypocrite.. Jonathan is still looking for way to appease OBJ and yet u say em no get power… Dey watch d movie.

      • tahir

        Obj is never a ward politician. He’s been a nationalist and a former president.

  • evi

    Who is this nonentity now? This quota system product must think he’s important.

  • Es3

    Expected?!!!

    When a supposed senior and elder statesman called Obasanjo, that is supposed to lead by good example, preferred to confirm that Jonathan was right to have referred to some supposed elder statesmen as behaving like motor park touts?!

  • jamesbourne

    this is shameful and a disgrace, tearing your card doesn’t make you special or feel awesome about yourself its a pity.

  • frankabby
