Newly elected All Progressives Congress’s (APC) senator Smart Adeyemi on Sunday said the man he defeated in the recently held Kogi West senatorial election did nothing to merit re-election, describing him as “the worst senator Nigeria ever produced.”
Senator Adeyemi said this on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
Adeyemi said People’s Democratic Party’s Dino Melaye’s only achievement as a senator was the purchase of expensive cars for personal use.
According to him “Dino is not a good representation of the people of Kogi West,”.
“Dino did nothing since he was there rather than buying cars and showing it (sic) to the Nigerian people.”
Melaye often posted pictures of his expensive cars in his garage on his social media pages.
Sen Adeyemi quizzed his rival on how he was able to acquire the exotic cars between 2015 and 2019.
Recall that the previous Kogi west Election conducted by the independent Electoral Commission (INEC) on November 16 was declared inconclusive due to violence and killings that characterized the exercise, which warranted a rerun Election.
Meanwhile, in a re-rerun contest, Adeyemi of the All Progressive Congress defeated Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party.
But Melaye said Adeyemi’s victory is “temporal and evaporative,” vowing to contest the result announced by INEC in court.
Melaye described the November 16 Election as a fraud that would not stand.
How Obaseki Paid ₦15 Billion To PDP For Guber Ticket — Ize-Iyamu
The All Progressives Congress (APC), gubernatorial candidate in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has accused the state Governor, Godwin Obaseki of bribing his way to emerge as the party’s flag bearer in the upcoming poll.
Ize-Iyamu alleged that Obaseki paid the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ₦15 billion to emerge as its governorship candidate.
He made the allegation in a statement signed by John Mayaki, his campaign Director of Communications.
The APC governorship candidate charged the state governor to explain to people of the state how he came about such a huge fund.
He also expressed optimism that he would defeat Obaseki at the poll on September 19.
“He is also yet to explain to the people of Edo State where he got the 15 billion Naira he paid the PDP tax-collectors to facilitate his imposition as the party’s emergency-hour candidate.”
“It is no surprise, given the nature of Obaseki’s administration and sharp practices of both governor and appointees that such an agency is missing in Edo State.”
Obaseki had emerged as PDP’s governorship candidate in Edo State after all aspirants stepped down for him.
