Dino Melaye Denies Collecting N3bn From Atiku, Dangote


Sen Dino Melaye, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  in Kogi state, has dismissed claims of collecting N3 billion from the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and businessman, Aliko Dangote for the elections.

Melaye denied the allegations at a dinner organised in his honour by members of his campaign organisation, in Abuja.

He described the claims as the handiwork of his detractors who wanted to derail his campaign.

According to Melaye, the speculation that he collected N1 billion from Atiku and N2 billion from Dangote was fake news peddled by betrayers.

“One of the lessons is that the east now know more than ever before, that they cannot become governor alone. You will have to collaborate with other zones to become governor.

“The second lesson is also for those of us from the west. Next time, we should listen to the words of wisdom from our elders and not from commercialized characters who because of their individual and selfish interests created problems for us.

“Because at the end of the day, what our elders have been saying that this will be the worst (election) for us, is eventually what happened.”
