The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has chided Senator Dino Melaye over utterances against the state governor, Nyesom Wike.
The Eaglesforesight had earlier reports that Wike and Dino had been washing their dirty linens in public over the party’s ticket for the Kogi State governorship election.
The Rivers Governor had in a media chat on Tuesday rubbished the move by Dino to get the governorship ticket, saying the latter is not fit to be governor.
But in a counter-reaction, Dino warned Wike to steer clear of his governorship ambition, stressing that the Kogi people will not worship him (Wike) as the people of Rivers do.

The former lawmaker accused the Rivers Governor of hating him because he was unable to secure the party’s presidential ticket in 2022 and the inability of Atiku Abubakar to pick him as his running mate.
Speaking on the matter, the PDP Director of Publicity in Rivers State, Ogbonna Nwuke, described Dino Melaye as a wet doll, saying the former lawmaker will learn his lessons after the poll.
Addressing journalists in Port Harcourt on Wednesday, Nwuke recalled that Dino cried like a baby in 2022 when T.J. Yusuf in alliance with Governor Wike beat him silly to clinch the PDP’s ticket for Kogi West Senatorial ticket.
He said, “How can a man who could not win his senatorial district aspire to lead a state? I think this may be what Governor Wike was alluding to.
“Dino is a wet doll, who thought and still thinks that riding on the back of Atiku would give him the key to the Kogi State Government House.
“Getting the PDP ticket is one thing, winning the election is another. Dino will find out later how things work. He will find out as the saying goes that ‘khaki no be leather’.
