Kogi Election: Wike warns PDP against fielding ‘attack dog’ for guber race, Dino can’t win

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike 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.

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?

He added that presenting Melaye will amount to certain defeat for the party during the 11th of November governorship elections in Kogi state.

Describing the former Kogi West senator as an attack dog, Wike asserted that he (Melaye) does not have what it takes to be governor of a state.

“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.”

Recalls that last week, Melaye joined the Kogi State governorship race as PDP prepares to hold its primary election in the state.
