Former federal lawmaker, Dino Melaye, has urged Nigerians to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the 2023 general election.

According to the former member of the 8th Nigerian National Assembly, representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Atiku is the best for the job as President of Nigeria.

Dino whiles campaigning for the PDP flagbearer, said that the former vice president is a pan-Nigerian.

Adding that he is the only candidate to have married from the three major tribes of Nigeria; mainly Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa.

Speaking in a video and shared on his Instagram page, Dino advised Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi to step aside as the country does not need a person like him.

He added that 2023 is not his time to become president of Nigeria.

“Peter Obi is one of the finest Nigerians who is intellectually mobile, he is a great Nigerian and by the grace of God, he is qualified to be a president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the nearest future. Mr Peter Obi, I celebrate your movement for a new Nigeria, but I want to advise that your time is not now, you have to wait for your time.

I have listened to your arguments and your deliveries including your campaign but I can say that 90% of your campaign is dwelling on reducing the cost of governance.

I want to tell you that the problems of this country are beyond just cutting the cost of governance. It is less than 1% of our national problems.

What we need in this country is to unite the nation. Nigeria has never been this divided in our national history. We need one character who has the ability to unite us as a nation.”
