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.

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”.
