Is Senator Dino Melaye Defecting From PDP To APC?
According to a report by Daily Trust, the senator representing Kogi West senatorial district, Senator Dino Melaye has dismissed the insinuation that he was planning to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressives Congress, (APC).
Melaye who was elected in the Saturday election for the second time, said that he would have ordinarily ignored the rumour for the fact that “it does not make sense that a man who went into an election as an opposition yet for the love and support of the good people of Kogi West defeated the state might”.
In a statement issued on Friday by his Media Assistant, Gideon Ayodele, said it is laughable that Senator Dino would join a government that has for three and a half years impoverished the people of Kogi State, which he noted has led to several loss of lives.
“We want to simply state that there is no relationship between light and darkness. Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye stands for light and the APC led government in Kogi state represents darkness.
“It is laughable to imagine that Senator Dino will join a government that has for the past 3 years and half impoverished the good people of Kogi state which has led to several loss of lives.
“However, their rumour has further shown how relevant Senator Dino Melaye is in the Kogi state political stage and Nigeria at large.
“We want our teaming supporters to know that it is the making of the APC supporters and it’s a wish that cannot be realised.
“We also want to assure our supporters and the PDP family that we are prepared to continue to fight for the liberation of our people in Kogi state and this struggle is a struggle of no retreat, no surrender”, the statement said.
