Dino Melaye, a former senator from Kogi West, has emerged as the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate for governor in the state’s November 11 general election. Melaye received 313 votes, defeating Jabiru Usman, who received 127 votes, who was his closest competitor.
At the conclusion of the indirect primary held in Lokoja on Sunday, Ahmed Makarfi, the chairman of the PDP Primary Election Committee, declared the outcomes. Also running were Musa Wada, the PDP’s candidate for governor in 2019, who came in fourth with 56 votes, and Yomi Awoniyi, a former deputy governor of the state who received 77 votes.
Dino Melaye Debunks Alleged Affair with Skit Makers
A few months ago, Dino Melaye, the spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council and current candidate for governor of Kogi State, raged at a blogger after being romantically linked to two well-known online content creators, Ashmusy and Nons Miraj.
After Nigerian comedian Nedu disclosed that he had seen two female online influencers enjoying a threesome with a well-known person in an Abuja hotel, the controversial blogger took subtle shots at Dino Melaye with Ashmusy and Nons Miraj.
Nedu added that he was withholding the names of the aforementioned influencers because they know he saw them and presume he will respect them by keeping their secret. Even though he omitted their names, the blogger still shared a photo collage of the group with a derogatory caption.
Dino Melaye reshared a screenshot of the blog piece and then reacted to it on his Facebook page, labelling the writer as an APC agent. If the blogger didn’t issue an apology within the following 24 hours, he threatened legal action against them.
“I will sue you this time. Will locate you. I don’t know any of these ladies. Agent of APC. You will not get away with your lies and unfounded story this time.
“You just dialled the wrong number. Apologise within 24 hours or face consequences,” Dino Melaye wrote.
