Dino Melaye Tears PDP Membership Card, Constitution
Ever since former President Olusegun Obasanjo publicly tore his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card in the build up to the 2015 general election, many politicians have been resorting to the practice to announce their decision to quit a particular party.
The latest in this practice of membership card tearing was done by Senator Dino Melaye (APC – Kogi West) who tore the PDP membership card of the immediate past commissioner representing Cross River State on the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Mr. Paul Adah.
This occurred on Tuesday at a rally held at the APC ward secretariat in Ohong-Begiadang community of the Obudu Local Government Area.
It was also used as an event welcoming Adah and other political bigwigs into the All Progressives Congress in Cross River State.
Melaye, according to The Punch, did not stop there; he equally tore a copy of the constitution of the PDP.
He assured supporters of the party to keep calm, as the party was poised to wrest power from the PDP in the state.
Also, he said that no election in the state would favour the PDP, stating that the APC in the state had become bolstered by the defection of the new party memebrs.
