Kogi State Senator, Dino Melaye has said that Governor Yahaya Bello is not a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Melaye, who represents the Kogi West Senatorial District, made the comments on Friday, January 27, during a press briefing in Abuja.

The Senator also said that people of the state had suffered more hardship under Bello’s administration than any other time.

 

Melaye had earlier accused Bello of teaming up with some people in the state to undermine his authority.

“The Governor of Kogi State cannot undermine me in Kogi State neither can anybody undermine me in APC in Kogi State,” Melaye said according to The Guardian.

“I say this with every sense of responsibility and humility. I am the only member of the Board of Trustees of APC in Kogi State, even the Governor of Kogi State is not a member and I am also a member of the executive council of APC.

“They said since I got into office I have not done anything, that I do not even have a secretariat; that 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 a few days from now, in this January,” he added.

Melaye had shown his support for Bello during his inauguration and taunted former governor, Idris Wada by singing “Bye bye to Wada Wada!”

The senator also said it was God who made it possible for Bello to emerge governor and urged the people to support him in transforming the state.
