The Rivers chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has tongue-lashed Senator Dino Melaye for throwing a tirade at Governor Nyesom Wike on Tuesday.
The party’s Director of Publicity, Ogbonna Nwuke, while responding to Dino’s verbal attack on Wednesday, said Dino cried like a baby in 2022 when T.J. Yusuf in alliance with Wike beat him to get the PDP’s ticket for Kogi West Senatorial ticket.
Nwukesaid: “Dino isn’t man enough to talk to Governor Nyesom Wike. Yusuf allied with Wike and beat Dino black and blue when they vied for the Senatorial ticket of the PDP in Kogi.
“How can a man who could not win his senatorial district aspire to lead a state? I think this may be what Governor Wike was alluding to. Dino is a wet doll, who thought and still thinks that riding on the back of Atiku would give him the key to the Kogi State Government House”, Nwuke said.
Nwuke further noted that even if Dino would never make a good administrator even if he won the gubernatorial election which according to him is an impossibility.
He said: “Getting the PDP ticket is one thing, winning the election is another. Dino will find out later how things work. He will find out as the saying goes that ‘khaki no be leather’.
“Even if Dino were to see daylight, he will never be the kind of Governor that Wike has become. Dino is so fake that one of his pursuits when turns governor, would be to use Kogi money to increase his stock of shoes, cars and wristwatches.
“There is a brand of Camry that car dealers call ‘big for nothing’. I have always wondered why the vehicle is big for nothing. Somehow, Dino’s mien, behavior and appearance explain why certain persons and objects are described as big for nothing.
“Dino is simply big for nothing. His quest to be governor of Kogi is dead on arrival. Both the blind and the one who was once blind can see it. It does not matter what Melaye says about Wike or how he says it. He thrashes. To the trash can of history will he return. History will remember Wike kindly. I cannot say that for Dino”.
Nwuke said Dino and other PDP members were the reason the party Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar lost to the All Progressives Congress candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the last election.
He said: “Listening to Dino Melaye talk, the first thing that crosses your mind is that uncanny feeling that this man, who comes across as a well-clad gentleman could be mentally challenged.
“You really can see it in the way he talks, the way he acts. What can you say about a layabout who on one occasion while mimicking someone kept falling down and standing up on stage?
“Listening to this creature rattle, I can see why he was such an unhealthy influence on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate. I can now understand why Atiku took the staircase that leads to hell.; why many wondered how somebody like Dino could be the one to speak for a serious-minded campaign organisation”.
