Speaker, Dino Melaye differ on APC Kogi ward congress

Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West senatorial district, has condemned the Ward congress of the All Progressives Congress in Kogi, just as the newly elected Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Kolawole Matthew, has commended the exercise.

In a statement issued on Friday, Dino urged the people of the state, especially APC members, to disregard what he called “Kangaroo Ward Congress.”

He said, “It will be an exercise in futility. The desperation of Yahaya Bello and his monetised consciences at the National Secretariat will fail.

“All party faithful in Kogi, no cause for alarm. We are in charge. Very soon, we will separate shaft from wheat.”

Meanwhile, the Speaker, Rt. Hon Kolawole Matthew, has commended what he described as the “hitch-free nature of the Local Government delegates congress of the All Progressive Congress.”

The congress held all over the state to elect delegates for the forthcoming national conference of the party.

The Speaker who spoke at Prestige Hotel venue for the Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area delegates’ congress said the peaceful conduct was an indication that the party was united.

“There have been hues and cries from some party caucuses who said the congress have been canceled.

“However, it was conducted across the 21 council areas of the state,” he noted.

The Speaker said the development shows that the party is better organised to continue its political dominance in the state.

Stating the result for Kabba/Bunu LGA, the returning officer, Babalola Fabunmi, announced Mr. Jerry Omodara, Bamidele Joloko and Grace Obamo as elected delegates.

Though the trio were nominated unopposed, delegates still cast their votes for them
