What actually went down at the Senate this morning
Kogi West senatorial representative, Dino Melaye attended the Senate plenary on Wednesday morning 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, 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 preferred seat.
But to officially join PDP, 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.
