The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PDPPCO)

reacted yesterday to the departure of former President Olusegun Obasanjo

from the party, saying while he was free to leave, he did not have to spit

in their faces by publicly tearing the party card.
In a statement issued by Director of Media and Publicity, Chief Femi

Fani-Kayode, the PDPPCO said “Watching our party membership card being

torn up whilst President Obasanjo was standing there and smiling was

painful and tragic.
“This is a party which he helped to build and on whose platform he was

elected President for eight good years. The truth is that President

Obasanjo is far better and far bigger than that. Such behavior is

provocative and unacceptable.
“He is free to leave the party but does he have to spit in our faces by

tearing up our party card in public and before the television cameras?

“This knee-jerk reaction is most unlike President Obasanjo and it is very

insulting. It is clear that he has burnt all the bridges and that he has

left us forever.
“On a personal note I feel saddened by this but the truth is that many in

our party have heaved a huge sigh of relief. Many of us love President

Obasanjo and we shall continue to do so regardless of whether he is in our

party or not but tearing up that party card was too much to bear.

“It spoke volumes and it was indicative of the deep hatred and contempt

that he has for us and our cause. It reminded me of the biblical passage

in which King Saul rejected David and then planned to stop him from

ascending to the throne by attempting to kill and destroy him. Thankfully

the Lord was with David and not only did he deliver him from Saul but he

also crowned him King.”
