February 25, 2015 6:01 pm

Peoples Democratic Party () National Secretary, Prof. Wale Oladipo,
on Tuesday said former President ’s party membership
card which was torn on his instruction was an expired one.

He made this known in Abuja while receiving some student union leaders
under the aegis of Student Mobilisation Network Group (SMNG).

Oladipo 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.

NAN recalls that Obasanjo had while hosting the executive members of PDP
in his ward in his Abeokuta home that he ordered 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.

Earlier, the leader the students group, Tekun Olanrewuju, said they were
at PDP’s secretariat to pledge allegiance to its leadership and to give
their support to Jonathan’s re-election bid.

He added that the students were supporting the PDP because they realised
that the political future of Nigerian youths lay in the party.

Olanrewuju, who is the National Coordinator of the group, stressed that
the achievement of Jonathan in all sectors of the nation’s economy
qualified him for a second term.

He called on the PDP leadership to utilise the 5,000 students in
University of Abuja, who had collected their Permanent Voters Cards
(PVCs) to its advantage.
