With the declaration of Senator Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the winner of the Kogi-West Senatorial District rerun election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, it is settled that Senator Dino Melaye has formally joined his colleagues who thought that by deserting the All Progressives Congress, APC, and embracing the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, they would succeed in their re-election bids as Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and in the process install a PDP government at the centre, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, an erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party, nPDP, has said.
Eze congratulated Senator Smart Adeyemi for retiring Senator Dino Melaye, and saving Nigerians the embarrassment that Dino has constituted himself to, stating that, this will enable him to formally join his friend, Senator Abe, and his other colleagues that conspired to sabotage the election of President Buhari and the APC, in most of the States of the Federation, during the 2019 general elections.
Chief Eze revealed this in a Press statement made available to Media houses in the South-South region of Nigeria.
Eze recalled that he worked with these elements in the formation of the APC, but felt disappointed that this group betrayed the essence why they formed the APC. “These Senators were members of the nPDP, who later joined and won elections under the platform of the APC, before their greed took better portion of their senses of reasoning, forcing them to form what they termed the Reformed – All Progressives Congress (R-APC), from where they pitched their tents with the PDP, and worked against the re-election of President Mohammadu Buhari.”
Eze expressed sadness that such highly placed Leaders could not read in between the lines, as to know that the era of politics of deceit has been consigned to the dustbin of history.
Eze further stated that it is pitiful that these Leaders exaggerated their relevance in the politics of Nigeria, by committing a political suicide that has retired them prematurely from the politics of Nigeria, making them irrelevant in their various Constituencies.
Eze mentioned the following as the former APC Senators who thought that by deserting the APC before the 2019 general elections, President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC would lose the Presidential election:
1 Dino Melaye Kogi
2 Rabiu Kwankwaso Kano
3 Lanre Tejuoso Ogun
4 Shaaba Lafiagi Kwara
5 Rafiu Ibrahim Kwara
6 Barnabas Gemade Benue
7 Abdulazeez Nyako Adamawa
8 Monsurat Sunmonu Oyo
9 Usman Nafada Gombe
10 Suleiman Hunkuyi Kaduna
11 Ibrahim Danbaba Sokoto
12 Ubale Shittu Jigawa
13 Isah Misau Bauchi
14 Suleiman Nazif Bauchi
15 Olubukola Saraki Kwara
The APC Chieftain, highlighted that one thing common about these collaborators and saboteurs, is that aside from losing their bearings in the politics of Nigeria, they are all political Associates of the Ogoni borne modern political Judas Iscariot, ex-Senator Magnus Ngei Abe, who refused to join the pro-Buhari group, led by Senator Andrew Uchendu and Senator Abdullahi Adamu, in the 8th National Assembly, but collaborated closely with these R-APC colleagues, with hope that the APC will lose the 2019 elections.
According to Eze, these persons who were all members of the defunct Reformed APC, R-APC, the platform through which they launched vicious attacks against the APC and re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, formally defected to the PDP, leaving Senator Magnus Abe behind in the APC, to do the damage of dismantling of Rivers State APC, in order to destroy the political structure of Rt. Hon. Dr. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, who refused to join them in their doomed plots.
“One must commend Senator Abe for executing the task assigned to him judiciously and professionally, seeing the result that Rivers State APC could not field even a single Candidate during the 2019 general elections.”
Eze recalled that to the build-up of this group’s defection to the PDP, they met at Port Harcourt, under the aegis of attending a sinister Thanksgiving event, organised by Abe, wherein Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, encouraged him to sell off his political family, which culminated in the current comatose state of the Rivers APC.
“With Senator Melaye and his colleagues out from the 9th Assembly, Nigerians can be rest assured that the feats that this administration will achieve, will take us to our rightful place in the comity of nations”, he concluded.
