The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, has dismissed insinuations against his leadership position in the Kogi State chapter of the All Progressives Congress.
The senator spoke in Ayetoro, his home town, during the distribution of empowerment materials.
He said, “They said since I got into office I had not done anything, that I did not even have a secretariat which is fallacious and a lie as I am the only Senator in the Federal Republic of Nigeria who is actually building a permanent structure as an office complex that will be commissioned few days from now in January.”
He described as “nonentities” those who dumped their parties to become tenants in the APC after eight years with the belief that they could undermine his integrity.
“There are so many unnecessary comments and rhetoric; some small small rats have been making noise around. As far as the APC is concerned in Kogi State, we are in charge, I am not boasting.”
He added, “I am the only member of the Board of Trustees of the APC in Kogi State, even the governor of Kogi State is not a member. I am also a member of the executive council of the APC and these are the two highest bodies where any decision would be taken and I would be present.”
