Dino Melaye makes a dramatic move to PDP

Following his absence from the Senate after a forceful attempt to escape the Nigerian police, Senator Dino Melaye today returned to plenary.

His resumption was characterised by the usual theatrics that included the adornment of his outfit with a neck collar, a walking stick, few attempts to stagger and the most surprising, a ’decampment’ to the opposition party, PDP.

He suggested the move when he made a request of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki stating, “I have a special request to you Mr President. Because of the trauma I went through and I’m still going through, I want to seek your indulgence that you will call on the Sergeant-at-arms to look for a comfortable seat for me on this side of the divide (the opposition side) because I am no longer comfortable sitting here. So, I want to ask the Senate President that you mandate the sergeant-at-arms tomorrow to look for a seat for me on this other divide of the chamber.”

The embattled senator was received with open arms by PDP senators including Ben Murray-Bruce who tweeted to that effect:

But other Nigerians?

Well, the Senator had something to say earlier:

I see lion,tiger and snakes on this sit. Change my sit mbok.
