- No one has power over me, claims Senator Dino Melaye
- The Kogi West parliamentarian says his position innthe APC cannot be undermined
The controversial lawmaker representing Kogi West in the Nigerian Senate, Dino Melaye, has said that no one can overlook his position and place in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to The Vanguard, Dino made the statement at Ayetoro-Gbede, his country home, weekend, during the distribution of empowerment materials worth over N200 million to members of his constituency.
He said: “There are so many unnecessary comments and rhetoric going around. As far as APC is concerned, whether at the national or state level, we are in charge. I am not boasting.
“Kogi State governor cannot underrate me, neither can anybody underrate me in APC. 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 is not a member. I am also a member of the executive council of APC.”
In a related development, Dino Melaye has prayed against negativity in Nigeria.
Melaye in his new year prayer also wished Nigerians a recession free year.
“Fellow countrymen and women, I want wish you a recession free 2017 and to pray that the Almighty God keep us together as a nation and help this country to get out of the woods,” Melaye said.
He also advised Nigerians to distance themselves from some certain people, including those who never admit their wrong doings.
“Keep your distance from people who would never admit their wrong, and will always make you feel like its all your fault. You must stay away from people like that.
