Dino Melaye Sparks Controversy After Tweet Endorsing Idris Wada
By Beauty Ehimhen
The Senator representing Kogi West senatorial district, Dino Melaye, has created a frenzy on Twitter by openly declaring the incumbent governor of Kogi State and a gubernatorial aspirant of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Captain Idris Wada as the better candidate for the forthcoming Kogi governorship election.
Senator Dino who is a member of the All Progressive Congress, APC, clearly stated that his party candidate in the state Prince Abubakar Audu can not be compared to the Governor. In his tweet, “In all fairness, you can’t compare Wada with Abubakar Audu. Under Wada, Kogi has made much more progress!”, Dino said.
Dino, known for his controversial stance once accused a national leader of the governing All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, of plotting to have him removed from the Senate for supporting Bukola Saraki to emerge as the Senate President.
As at the time of filing this report the tweet has been deleted but not before it was munched by some Nigerian Twitter users as seen below.
