‘Once I Was Blind, But Now I Can See’ – Dino Melaye Blasts APC


Senator Dino Melaye says the All Progressives Congress (APC) isn’t a gathering to be reckoned with, arguing that the main party needs a structure in which a country can advance strategically.

The official who said there is no fomentation inside the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), guaranteed that the stories about troubles in the opposition camp are being peddled by the APC.

As indicated by him, the unsteady pillars whereupon the APC is standing is the reason why the nation is not making progress in leaps and bounds as expected.

Mr. Melaye who further expressed that he regretted having an influence in carrying the present administration to power, drove his point home with the biblical allusion “Once I was blind, but now I can see”.

Speaking further on his relationship with the ruling party, Mr. Melaye said it is the absence of true “political materials” that made people like him decamp to the PDP.

The statesman said he left APC to a party that has its structure and national executive intact. A party that he says has nothing to fear regarding its political future.

Reacting to comments regarding zoning ahead of the 2023 presidential election, the lawmaker said the PDP’s election review has made recommendations that will be properly looked into before a stand is taken on the issue.

He said: “The NEC is yet to sit on these recommendations, it is yet to sit on the report, a committee is going to be set up to look at the meat of the report and nothing like that has happened”.

PDP’s 2019 Elections Review Committee submitted its report on Wednesday.

The Committee led by Senator Bala Mohammed has stated that PDP lost the last presidential election due to manipulations by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in conjunction with the electoral umpire (INEC) and security operatives.

Mohammed’s panel made several recommendations regarding the forthcoming elections including a second look at PDP’s internal politics and giving a level playing field for the youths and women who are a majority in terms of demographics and in terms of interest.

It also included making sure that the electoral umpire which has started instituting some reforms will become totally impartial.

Senator Melaye in further speaking about the review said the body language of the party to the recommendations is that no action will be taken until the suggestions are adequately dissected.
