Senator Smart Adeyemi has taken a swipe at Senator Dino Melaye, describing him as a ‘disgrace to Nigerian nation’, saying Nigeria must never produce a Senator like Melaye again.
Adeyemi and Melaye locked horns at the just concluded Kogi West district senatorial election, with Adeyemi emerging victorious.
Reacting to his victory in the poll, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate berated his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) opponent for his kind of person.
“Dino was my political houseboy and it has manifested in the way and manner he couldn’t manage the office. I pardon Dino; he should still know more.
“I pray that Nigeria would never produce a Senator like Dino again. Dino was a disgrace to the Nigerian nation. Dino was a manifestation of the decadence in our society that he could emerge as a Senator.

“A senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is a man with antecedents, a man who has been tested and trusted; who would come and champion those things that he has seen elsewhere that will that is good for the nations;what he has read about nations, how they excelled, how they got to enviable positions…”
Senator Adeyemi was returned elected by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the winner of the Kogi West senatorial district election after polling the highest number of votes.
Senator Melaye has since rejected the outcome of the election, alleging that he was robbed while his life was in danger.
