The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye, has again lambasted the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
DAILY POST reports that the face-off between the duo began when the Rivers Governor kicked against Dino’s bid to secure the PDP ticket for the Kogi gubernatorial poll.
Recall that Wike had on April 11 during a media chat in Port Harcourt said Dino lacked what it takes to become Governor of Kogi State.
Dino, a former federal lawmaker, had, while replying the governor, linked Wike’s rift with him to the governor’s inability to secure the party’s presidential ticket in 2022 and the refusal of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to pick him as his running mate.
He clinched the party’s ticket on Monday to run for the November 11 governorship election.
Speaking on the matter while appearing on Arise Television program on Wednesday, Dino described Wike as a drug and alcoholic induced individual, saying he has no time to talk about such personality.
According to Dino, Wike’s actions are triggered by post election trauma.
He said, “Wike is one who is about to be taken off the shelf so I will not bother myself discussing with a man who is about leaving the office and is suffering from post election trauma.
“I want to concentrate seriously on my election and how to rescue the people of Kogi State.
“I do not have time actually for a drug and alcoholic induced individual”.
