Nigerian politician, Dino Melaye has reacted to reports that he is planning to join the All Progressives Congress.
Former Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye has opened up following media reports that he's planning to rejoin the ruling All Progressives Congress.
During his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday, Melaye, who defected from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2018, said he has no plan to return to “vomit”.
The PDP stalwart described the APC as a disaster that has caused Nigerians pains since coming to power in 2015.
He said: “No reasonable human being will go back to his vomit,” he said. “The APC is a disaster. For every human being, there is a journey of life.
“You will definitely pass through your Egypt to the land of Canaan. So I pass through Egypt, and that is APC, but I am in Canaan and I am comfortable and enjoying my stay.”
The former lawmaker, however, accused the ruling party of being behind the crisis rocking the PDP, adding that the opposition party does not have any issue but sponsored crisis.
Melaye said the PDP’s convention scheduled to hold this weekend will go as planned, adding that the ruling of the Court of Appeal on Friday will favour the party.
He said: “PDP is not in a dilemma. My party is solid. There is no fear, no agitation. The agitation is rather from the APC, who are part of those orchestrating what we are saying.
“I want to tell you that we are not perturbed. There is calmness in the PDP, all our programs and preparation towards the convention is ongoing.”
