Dino Melaye reveals preferred political party after victory

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 Progressive Congress, (APC), saying “I remain in PDP, PDP is my home, PDP is my home.

Melaye who was elected in last Saturday’s election for the second time, said he would have ordinarily ignored the rumour adding 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 signed by his Media Assistant, Gideon Ayodele, on Friday, the Kogi West Senator said it is laughable that he 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.

The statement reads, “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 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”.
