Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and former governor of Rivers state, queried the governorship ticket given to Senator Dino Melaye.
In a trending old video, Wike said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had already shot itself in the foot by giving Melaye the governorship ticket in Kogi state.
Why Dino Melaye cannot become Kogi governor
According to Wike, Melaye does not have what it takes to be a governor. PAY
The FCT minister noted that Melaye knows how to make noise on national TV but does not understand the dynamics of governance.
Wike’s video emerged after the candidate of the ruling APC in Kogi state, Usman Ododo, defeated Melaye at his polling unit and won 11 out of 18 LGAs announced by INEC.
The video shared by an X user identified simply as @DeeOneAyekooto on Sunday, November 12, is currently trending on social media.
Wike said: “We are not talking about grammar, we are talking asbout governor of a state. For christ sake, PDP present such a candidate and you mean that Kogi peaople want development?
“You see, lets us stop this idea that he is from Kogi. It’s okay. For Christ sake, Dino does not have what it takes to be a governor. For crying out loud, what is he going to do? He knows me very well.”
What disqualifies Melaye from emerging as Kogi governor
When asked what disqualifies Dino, Wike responded: “He does not have what it takes to be a governor at all at all.
“It is not by coming to act drama on television. It is not by coming to Arise TV to accuse Wike. It is not that.
“You are telling me that PDP wants to win an election, what you will do is to give tiocket to Dino Melaye? and you will say that tomorrow you were rigged, when you ahve already started rigging yourself.”
