Kogi: ‘You’ve been scammed,’ ADC disputes collapse of Melaye’s structure

Adaji John, the Kogi-based ADC chairman, provided the clarification in a statement on August 13th, Sunday.

Adaji was responding to accusations that Dino Melaye, a candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had abandoned the party and collapsed its structure into that of the ADC’s Adejo Ameadaji, chairman of the Ida local government.

He emphasised that Melaye might have been duped and that Leke Abejide, the ADC candidate, is still in the running to lead Kogi state.

“To begin with, Adejo Ameadaji from the Igalogba ward is the African Democratic Congress chairman for the Idah council area. If somebody did visit or receive Dino, they were definitely trying to con him, and they were successful, Adaji added.

“This development is a blatant hoax and an attempt to blackmail Dino. To the best of our knowledge, the individual whose face is visible in the video is not a member of the ADC party; instead, he is an Ibaji man.

“Those faceless individuals, led by the ghost Adejoh Haruna, whom the camera purposefully avoided capturing, must have taken advantage of Melaye’s lack of intelligence or attempted to repay him with his own money because it is well known that Melaye is a con artist and a tutor to con artists. ‘Scamming the scammer’ is the only strategy that can be used in this situation.

Adaji called Melaye a “purveyor of falsehood,” adding that the former senator from Kogi was already playing into the hands of the APC and Yahaya Bello.

“Unlike the governor, who was able to support his kangaroo decamping stories with some pictures, Dino Melaye was unable to do so. This is the new low of peddling fake news, which the PDP candidate has long been associated with, to mislead the residents of the state of phyric relevance.”

He pleaded with the electorate to ignore the reports and added that ADC was still running for governor of Kogi state.
