Reports just coming in says, Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday morning dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He handed over his PDP membership card to the Ward 11 leader in Abeokuta North local government, Alhaji Surajudeen Oladunjoye and instructed him to tear it.
Oladunjoye, who led about 350 members of the ward to a fact-finding mission at Obasanjo's residence, tore the card into shreds to the admiration of the party followers, some of whom also tore their cards.
Addressing newsmen in Abeokuta, he said if his involvement in partisan politics would stop him from having a better Nigeria, then he is ready to sacrifice membership of the PDP and become a statesman.
Obasanjo who was responding to enquiry on rumours of his imminent expulsion from the party, directed his aide to get his membership card and few minutes later he was given, instructed that it be torn and thrown away.
