Dino Melaye would not soon forget his ordeal in the hands of his twitter followers after he politicized the deaths in a helicopter crash of Kaduna Governor, Patrick Yakowa and ex-National Security Adviser, Gen. Patrick Azazi, who died over the weekend.
The former member of the House of Representative most famous for fighting in the House and allegedly impregnating and denying the paternity if a Nollywood star's child had insensitively tweeted immediately after the crash that "Private jet equals private death, stop the stealing now".
Obasanjo to Jonathan, I Can't Stop Criticizing, As Jonathan Visits Redemption Camp.
If anyone was expecting former President Obasanjo to stop commenting critically on issues pertaining to Nigeria and the People's Democratic Party (PDP) that person thought wrong as Obasanjo told the visiting PDP Chairman, Bamanga Tukur, point blank that e would not.
Speaking when Tukur paid him a courtesy visit at his hilltop home in Abeokuta yesterday Obasnjo said "the country, the party and government would remain my primary concern, because, if there is no Nigeria, there will not be a party, and if there is no party, there will be nothing to govern on the platform of the party”.
In a statement released minutes ago, President Jonathan commiserated with the families of the victims of the crash which claimed the life of Kaduna State Governor, Patrick Yakowa and former National Security Adviser (NSA). The President also ordered an investigation into the circumtances of the crash.
The President's statement appears below.
