Kogi West PDP Elders Forum Rejects Dino Melaye, Says He Needs Reformation
What a child cannot see from a tree top, an elder would sight while sitting. This is what African elders say.
It appears the PDP elders in Kogi West, where Dino Melaye hails from can see through his recent romance of the PDP as a gimmick to stay in the Senate.
They will not be used by the APC man as the race to recontest for the Kogi West senate seat gets intense.
Kogi West Elders Forum (KWEF) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected any attempt to impose Melaye as the sole senatorial candidate on the people of the Kogi West in 2019.
The group’s chairman, Hon. Shaibu Momoh, said at a meeting held in Lokoja, over the weekend that they intend to work with other leaders in Kogi West, to present a credible candidate from Yagba axis.
He warned that imposition of candidate by any group or individual will be resisted vehemently.
“That the news of an attempt to impose the controversial Senator Dino Melaiye on the people’s Democratic Party (PDP) Kogi West, by the National Leadership of the party, as Automatic Senatorial candidate for the 2019 National Assembly election is hereby rejected in its totality and unacceptable”, he said.
According to the group, Senator Dino Melaye comes from a Ijumu local government area of Kogi West that has been producing the senator for the Senatorial district for the past 12 years and adding another four years will make 16 years while the rest 6 local government areas will still be waiting for their turn.
The Chairman noted that Senator Melaiye, as he stands today, was not an asset to PDP but a very big liability because he has no noticeable structure and followers that can substantially erode the consequential damage, such imposition could cause on PDP in the state.
“He is seen as too controversial and his unacceptable behaviors are the serious negative views of the public against him.
“He cannot win any election in a free and fair atmosphere and PDP should therefore not gamble with him as a candidate for now.
“He needs a serious reformation period which PDP Kogi state do not have the luxury of time to dispense,” he said.
