Wike Laughs Off Dino Melaye’s Governorship Ambition




Rivers State Governor, Nyesome Wike, has laughed off the governorship ambition of Senator Dino Melaye.

According to Wike, the former Kogi West senator does not have what it takes to vie for such a position.

The state governorship election in Kogi State is scheduled to hold on November 1, 2023.

Speaking during  in a media chat with selected journalists in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, April 11, Wike said;

When you give Dino that ticket, you know he won’t win in Kogi State. Why would Kogi people say they would vote for a candidate like Dino? Are we joking?”


According to the governor, the mere fact that someone is from a place does not equate to electoral success if such a person contests an election.


“Dino does not have what it takes [to be a governor] for crying out loud. He knows me very well. He does not have what it takes to be a governor.”

According to him, if the PDP gives the ticket to the former Kogi West lawmaker, the party is doomed to lose the exercise.

“Does it mean now that if the PDP wants to win the election, it would give the ticket to Dino and you say tomorrow that you were rigged when you have already killed yourself?. Are we saying that we want to win an election or just have a candidate?” he asked

Wike who was a one-time Minister of Education said he won’t campaign for the PDP if the party gives its governorship ticket to Senator Dino.

“Do you need to ask me that kind of question? Are you not aware that I would not do that?” Wike said when asked if he would campaign for the main opposition party if Dino wins the ticket.”
