‘Yeye dey smell’-Dino Melaye on calls to join APC


Dino Melaye, former Kogi West Senator, on Tuesday, condemned calls demanding he defects from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Melaye said he can not return to the APC which he likened to a Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO.

In a tweet, Melaye wrote: “God will punish those coming to say Dino leave PDP. How can l leave a Political Party and join an NGO like APC? Yeye dey smell, comot for road jare. SDM.”

The former Kogi lawmaker had in May 2018 defected from APC to PDP.

Prior to his defection from APC, Melaye had endured difficult times following prosecution by the Nigeria Police Force and the Kogi State government.

Melaye had then defected during a plenary session of the senate.

The former lawmaker had explained that he defected because PDP members stood by him while he was allegedly being persecuted by the federal government.

Melaye had described APC lawmakers as lions, tigers and snakes.

Following his defection, the former lawmaker has criticized the APC-led Federal Government at any available opportunity.
