Dino Melaye, Smart Adeyemi, ‘Fight’ Shamelessly In Public, Ahead Of The Kogi-West Senatorial Rerun. ||Anyigbaleft

Ahead of the Kogi-West Senatorial District rerun election ordered by the Court of Appeal, last week, the two actors in the race, Smart Adeyemi and Dino Melaye, have been trading words.

The two-term Senator who represented the region, Senator Smart Adeyemi, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that his rival Dino Melaye, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, never won any election in his Political career.

 He noted that he has always been manipulating his way through, using political thugs, adding that, he has rigged elections right from his days at the House of Representatives.

“This position had been proved right by last week’s decision of the Court of Appeal, affirming the decision of the lower court, ordering the rerun of the Kogi-West Senatorial election”, Adeyemi said.
He stated in an interview that no one can deliberately cast his vote for Dino, because he did not fit into the category of those that can earn the respect of any Yoruba man who values morals more than money.
“Besides, the Senate is meant for those who have proved their mettle in other areas, before bringing his experience to bear at the Senate.
“Where has Dino ever worked to gather any experience?” he quipped.
However, in reaction, Dino Melaye described Smart Adeyemi as an expired product in Kogi-West.
He said that his eight years in Office is a curse, rather than a blessing to the District.
Speaking through his Media Aide, Gideon Ayodele, Melaye said: “The judgments at the Tribunal and Appeal Court have not said that Senator Dino Melaye did not defeat him.

“Senator Dino Melaye defeated Smart in 6 out of the 7 Local Government Areas of Kogi-West.
“The mandate is the people’s mandate, and cannot be stolen nor taken away. If we go to the election, again and again, Dino Melaye will still defeat Smart Adeyemi.”

He said that the people of Kogi-West have tested the two of them, and know who is more beneficial to the District.

“Senator Smart cannot point at any project he executed or influenced to the district in eight years, but Senator Dino Melaye has over 200 verifiable projects all over the 7 Local Governments”, he noted.
