Senator Dino Melaye Senator Dino Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye has taken a swipe at the All Progressives Congress and its Minister of State for Labour, Festus Keyamo.

In an interview on Channels Television, Melaye noted that the APC candidates are the most difficult people to sell.

Citing an example with the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He said that the party cannot defend, promote or campaign for the flagbearer without looking stupid.

His comment comes after Keyamo, who is also the spokesperson of the Tinubu campaign organisation had recently jabbed Atiku; saying he does not have the experience to lead Nigeria and that the Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi is even way ahead of him in the race for the country’s number one seat.

Reacting to his comment, Dino Melaye said;

"This government marketed Atiku by their colossal failure. Today, the most difficult candidate to sell is an APC candidate whether, at the House of Representatives, Senate, or governorship level.

“That is why you cannot defend, promote or campaign for Bola Ahmed Tinubu without looking stupid. This is what happened to my brother and friend, Festus Keyamo, he started talking off point. He started saying things that do not make sense.”
