Ahead of Saturday’s Kogi state governorship poll, Senator Dino Melaye took Governor Yahaya Bello to the cleaners saying he is so weak that he can’t do better than him on top of women.
Melaye who is a member of the opposition people’s democratic party (PDP) is billed to face his rival of the ruling All progressive congress (APC), Senator Smart Adeyemi same day with the governorship poll on the orders of the appeal court.
Governor Bello who quoted as saying that he would rather lose the election than allow Dino to retain his Kogi West senatorial seat.
Melaye whose notoriety for stoking controversy in recent times said during one of his campaign outings in Kogi west that Bello is a complete failure in all ramifications.
While addressing a crowd at a rally, Melaye said he is better than the governor in many aspects, adding that he is more handsome, taller, educated and sexually active.
“I want to assure you the kind of development we have not seen before, salary is compulsory, paramount, mandatory and a must. You all know Yahaya Bello, there is nothing I don’t have more than him.
” Number one, I am taller than him. Number two, I am more handsome than him. Number three, I am more educated than him. And if it is ‘kere wa wa’, I can do better than him.”
“Kere wa” is a lose form of referring to sex in vernacular. It is unclear when Melaye made the statement.
Melaye failed in his bid to secure the PDP governorship ticket and subsequently rejected the offer to lead the PDP governorship campaign.
