National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole has said that former senator representing Kogi-West senatorial district, Dino Melaye is struggling after decamping from the party to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Oshiomhole said that Nigerians have their way of punishing politicians who decamp from their parties to another opposition party.
He stated this while addressing the state house correspondent on the Kogi state senatorial rerun.
He said, “We realised that of all the 16 senators who decamped along with Senator Bukola Saraki from the APC to PDP, hard as they have tried to come back, the Nigerian people in their respective constituencies have insisted on punishing them for being disloyal for transferring or monetising their mandate.
“I think the only one still struggling now is Dino Melaye, as you can see Senator Adeyemi is leading, even though INEC is insisting on a rerun.
“The lessons to be learned for us as a party are rather clear when politicians go to the poll to collect mandate on a particular political party platform, and then they leave for another party, the electorate will always be waiting for them,” he added.
