Nigeria’s Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Dino Melaye has turned down the appointment of the position of the Director-General of PDP Kogi State Governorship Campaign Council.
Senator Dino Melaye was a governorship aspirant under platform of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP but lost the ticket bid after coming out fourth position in the contest polling a total of 70 votes.
It is recalled that Musa Wada the younger brother of the immediate past governor of Kogi state Idris Wada emerged winner of the state’s PDP gubernatorial election which was criticized by Dino Melaye’s camp as totally unacceptable.
Dino Melaye rejected the PDP governorship primaries result for Kogi after he alleged the election was a fraud that denied him the ticket to be the party’s flag bearer in the upcoming state gubenatorial election.
Dino Melaye in his revocation statement stated that he wishes the party all the best but he won’t be part of the casualty that has categorised the Kogi State chapter of the Party.
“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 truth is a casualty there is chaos.” Senator Dino Melaye wrote.
