Judgement: Smart Adeyemi Is My Political Wife – Dino Melaye
I’m Daniel… I’ll never fail.
Dino Melaye, the lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district, says his contender Smart Adeyemi is his political wife.
Melaye, 45, called himself Daniel, one of the prophets in the Bible.
Daniel was one of the famous men in the Bible who was thrown into the lion’s den to obey the king’s God but he refused and came out unhurt.
The lawmaker said this in an interview on Channels Television while reacting to the judgement of the Tribunal which stripped him and orders a fresh election in the district.
Melaye boasted that he had never failed and did not intend to start now. He described his opponent as his political wife who had defeated on numerous times.
He bragged that there would be no other election in Kogi west until he has been sworn in as governor.
Lashing Smart Adeyemi, Melaye said: “Smart Adeyemi is my political wife; I defeated him in 2015, I defeated him in 2019 and any day any time, he is my political wife.
“I want to say that I cannot be distracted and I will not be distracted. My name is Daniel; I will not fall. I am focused on my governorship ambition and we will get it. The only time there will be an election for the seat of the Senate in Kogi West is after I am sworn in as the governor of Kogi State.
“That will necessitate vacancy but before then, there will be no by-election as a result of an attempted robbery that is going on right now.”
He assured that his lawyers have begun plans to appeal the judgement of the Tribunal which he described as unfavourable.
“Spiritually we are already in the court of appeal; physically we will be there on Monday. The only election that will be conducted is the governorship election that I will win. My mandate is secured, my mandate is guaranteed,” he said.
