Melaye, on his official twitter handle @dino-melaye, stated that APC would be defeated in Kogi State, adding that only ‘foolish and stupid’ and people with degree in stupidity would leave PDP for APC.
He wrote: ‘Foolish and stupid’, people with degree in stupidity will leave PDP for APC. APC will be defeated in Kogi State.”
After recent setbacks in his political career in the PDP, it had been rumoured that the senator planned to decamp.
The Kogi State election tribunal in Lokoja, had recently sacked Melaye as senator and ordered a fresh election.
Dino had also lost out of the PDP governorship primary held on September 3. He came fourth with 70 votes, while Musa Wada was declared winner with 748 votes.
Dino appealed against the result to the PDP Kogi and Bayelsa Governorship Appeal Panel headed by the PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, but his appeal failed.
The party had also appointed Dino director-general of PDP’s governorship campaign in the state. Dino, however, turned down the position.
