This is what actually went down this morning at the Senate. Embattled Kogi West senator, Dino Melaye, attended the Senate plenary on Wednesday after some weeks absence.
Mr Melaye raising a point of order thanked his colleagues, members of the House of Representatives, his constituents and the Nigerian populace for standing by him during his travails.
Mr Melaye also took his time to thank the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for their support.
Mr Melaye, who attended the chamber with a neck support, also asked the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to mandate the sergeant-at-arms to create a seat for him at the opposition wing of the chamber.
Thereafter, he announced he would sit beside former Senate President, David Mark, pending the time a seat will be allocated to him.
He was thereafter aided by some of his colleagues to his preffered seat.
But erm, he is, however, yet to FORMALLY join the PDP. To do so officially, Mr Melaye would have to write the Senate president of his decision to leave his party and join the opposition. The letter would then be read during Senate plenary.
But then, you can be rest assured he might do that soon.The Senator can’t be predicted, lol.
