Senator Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi West senatorial district, has described as a lie the report that over 3,252 members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in his constituent have decamped to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The report has it that the PDP in the district included a former Kogi Commissioner of Water Resources, Tunji Oshanusi, and that of Agriculture, Femi Abolarinwa.
The APC Zonal Chairman, Ropo Asagun reported received the defectors at the township stadium in Kabba during the official flag-off of APC Zonal Rally.
In his reaction, Melaye said the defection never happened, adding that no one would wish to buy hunger with their money.
He tweeted, “The lies of 3000 imaginary people decamping from PDP in my constituency.
“Another Tramadol induced lie. Who will wish to buy hunger with his/her money?”
