2019: Kogi PDP vehemently rejects Sen. Dino Melaye, gives reasons

Kogi West Elders’ Forum KWEF, of Peoples Democratic Party PDP, has declared it’s intention to vehemently reject any attempt to impose Senator Dino Melaye as the sole senatorial candidate of the party in the 2019 election.
Shaibu Momoh, the Chairman of the Forum, revealed this, while speaking after they met yesterday in Lokoja, the state capital, to deliberate on    Melaye’s official planned defection to PDP.
Momoh said if Melaye was allowed to contest in any free and fair election in the state now, the party would be defeated- while state the Melaye will be    a liability and not an asset to the former ruling party in the state.
“Dino Melaye is seen as too controversial and his unacceptable behaviors are the serious negative views of the public against him. He cannot win any     election in a free and fair atmosphere and PDP should therefore not gamble with him as a candidate for now.
“He needs a serious reformation period which PDP Kogi state do not have the luxury of time to dispense.
“leadership of PDP in the state under the two former governors of the state, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, Captain Idris Wada, senator Tunde Ogbeha Alhaji Musa Ahmadu and host of other critical stakeholders have been struggling to rebrand a PDP that can recapture power from an aggressive non-performing government of APC in the state.
“They have reconciled several prominent strong men and women who came back to the party and their re-entrance back to PDP is without any condition or concession but genuine. Imposition of a Senatorial candidate will cause a major derailment and unimaginable crisis that PDP may not overcome before the general election.
“The critical leaders are on ground and they understand this great danger and trap, hence their rejection of this Dino imposition.
“Senator Dino Melaye is welcome to PDP as specified under the Constitution of the party. He is free to aspire to any position of his choice but must take cognisance of existing mutual arrangement.
“He will not be discriminated against in any form in the conduct of the affairs in the state. He should come into the party with genuine open mind and contribute meaningfully to growth of the PDP like any other senior member of the party”.
