Two former deputy governors, 100 members and other top chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have vowed to defect to other parties following the emergence of Senator Dino Melaye as the governorship candidate of Kogi state.
It is understood that the outcome of the primaries was fraudulent after they confirmed that Melaye manipulated the delegates.
It was gathered that the outcome of the PDP primaries that saw the emergence of Senator Melaye was fraudulent after they confirmed that he manipulated the delegates.
Ex-deputy governor of Kogi State Yomi Awoniyi in his reaction to the development said:
“We have copies of the delegates list for the twenty-one local government areas and the entire two hundred thirty-nine wards across the state supported by the state’s PDP executives.
“It’s trite to say that while the party sets up guidelines for due process and the process is adhered to, it’s unreasonable to have the same party jeopardising the same process by importing strange names into the delegates list.
“There will be serious and grave consequences for the PDP if the approved delegates list isn’t used.”
