Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi West at the Nigerian Senate, says it is only compound fools and people with a degree in stupidity that will leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party.
Naija News reports that Senator Melaye who was recently sacked by the election tribunal, made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Sunday, September 15.
The Kogi West lawmaker said the ruling APC would certainly be defeated in the November 2019 governorship election.
“Only compound fools and people with degree in stupidity will leave PDP for APC. APC will be defeated in Kogi state,” the Senator wrote on his Twitter page.
On Friday, September 13, Senator Melaye rejected an appointment by the Kogi State chapter of the PDP to become its Director-General in its quest to reclaim the State in the forthcoming November 16th governorship election.
Naija News recalls that the Kogi West lawmaker was defeated at the Kogi PDP primary election by Musa Wada, the younger brother of Idris Wada, who emerged governorship candidate of the PDP in Kogi.
“Let me state categorically that I have turned down the position of Director-General of the PDP Kogi State Governorship Campaign Council. I wish PDP all the best. When truthis a casualty there is chaos,” Senator Melaye wrote on his Twitter page.
