Dino Melaye Vs Fayose

A former Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, has attacked the former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, over the presidential ticket of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), saying the former governor is a mere jester and does not have the necessary credentials needed to become the president of a country like Nigeria.

Melaye stated this in a long epistle he posted on his official facebook page saying that although Fayose has obtained presidential nominarion form, he is a mere jester who is only trying to curry cheap publicity by mauling cheap wraps of Amala in a “pretentious exhibition of dining with the masses.”

Recall that Ayodele Fayose had branched at a local eatery in Abuja to eat some wraps of Amala and Gbegiri shortly after he obtained his PDP presidential nomination form, a gesture that many of the masses have known him for and really admired about him.

However, this seems not to go down well with Melaye, who has now decided to launch a verbal attack on Fayose for seeking what he terms “frugal populism.”

In the letter Melaye posted on facebook and titled ‘The Presidency is Not Ponmon and Amala’, he lampooned the former governor of Ekiti state for attacking other serious presidential contenders in the person of Bukola Saraki and Atiku Abubakar, noting that Fayose who has lost grip of Ekiti state politics lacks moral standing to denigrate the personalities of other politically relevant and leading presidential aspirants within the PDP.

He said: “Inebriated by several wraps of Amala in Abuja, former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, in his characteristic exuberance directed indecent and indecorous attacks at two serious contenders for the Presidential ticket of the People’s Democratic Party, HE Atiku Abubakar and HE Bukola Saraki.”

“Incidentally, the mauling of Amala gained more publicity over the collection of the Presidential nomination form, in a pretentious exhibition of dining with the masses. This frugal populism has since been deflated by allegations of charges for the ferreting of billions of naira from public coffers in Ekiti State. Is Amala and Abula so expensive?

“The issue before Nigerians now is not who can eat more , but who can produce food. That is why the attempt to tar the outstanding achievements of Atiku Abubakar as former Vice President and Bukola Saraki as former Senate President by Fayose would be discounted as the belching perfidy of a Presidential gambler.

“It is clear from the verbal missiles deployed by Fayose that he was simply de-marketing frontline aspirants in PDP as a counter-intuitive strategy to shore up the chances of his political godfather in APC.

“It is amazing that Fayose who could not manage and retain a PDP state now aspires to lead a behemoth structure like Nigeria. Today, Ekiti is stripped of all vestiges of PDP; no PDP Senator, no PDP House of Representatives Member, no House of Assembly member, no Local Government Chairman, and not even a Councillor. He left Ekiti State worse than he met it. How could he fail in the state and expect promotion to the National?

“The contest for the ticket of PDP and the Presidency of Nigeria is a serious engagement. Those who aspire to the position must elevate themselves above pedestrian conduct and address real issues, rather than dwelling on inconsequential inanities.

“The National Leadership of our great Party should call Fayose to order, by curtailing his unproductive verbiage against serious contenders. Having failed to upgrade from local political space to the National stage Fayose may indeed be assisted to undertake a week-long orientation session on the ethics and codes of peer relations on a Presidential canvass.

“Nigeria is in dire straits at the moment. It is beyond the call of jesters in the corridors of elevated governance,” he concluded.
