This post has already been read 567 times!

A former Senator, Dino Melaye, has called on the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party to caution ex-governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State against de-marketing its presidential contenders for the 2023 general elections, describing him as “a presidential gambler”.

He was reacting to the comments by Fayose against former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and ex-Senate President, Bukola Saraki, over the collection of the presidential nomination forms.

Melaye said this in a statement titled, ‘The Presidency is not Ponmo and Amala’, on Friday.

According to him, Fayose’s comment is a strategy to allegedly shore up the chances of his political godfather in the All Progressives Congress.

He said, “Inebriated by several wraps of Amala in Abuja, former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, in his characteristic exuberance, directed indecent and indecorous attacks at two serious contenders for the presidential ticket of the PDP, His Excellency Atiku Abubakar and His Excellency Bukola Saraki.

“Incidentally, the mauling of Amala gained more publicity over the collection of the presidential nomination form, in a pretentious exhibition of dining with the masses. This frugal populism has since been deflated by allegations of charges for the ferreting of billions of Naira from public coffers in Ekiti State. Is Amala and Abula so expensive?

“The issue before Nigerians now is not who can eat more, but who can produce food. That is why the attempt to tar the outstanding achievements of Atiku Abubakar as former Vice President and Bukola Saraki as former Senate President by Fayose would be discounted as the belching perfidy of a presidential gambler.
