Wike Mocks Dino Melaye, Says He Lack Capacity, Can’t Be Gov Of Kogi State
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said Dino Melaye, a spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, cannot be Governor of Kogi State.
Wike warned that the PDP would fail if Melaye emerged as its governorship candidate.
Addressing selected journalists in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital, Wike stressed that the former Kogi West Senator lacked the capacity to govern a state.
“Dino does not have what it takes [to be a governor] for crying out loud,” Wike maintained. “He knows me very well. He does not have what it takes to be a governor.”
When asked if he would campaign for the main opposition party if Dino wins the ticket, Wike said, “Do you need to ask me that kind of question? Are you not aware that I would not do that?
According to Wike: “If you give Dino the governorship ticket, you know he will fail; there is no way he can win. Why will Kogi people say they would vote for a candidate like Dino?
“People can’t vote for Dino because he is from Kogi; Dino does not have what it takes to govern the state or be a governor. It’s not by coming on television to act drama or insult Wike.”
Last week, Melaye joined the Kogi State governorship race as PDP prepares to hold its primary election in the state.
