The senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Dino Melaye has taken a swipe at his former party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Melaye, who recently failed to clinch the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the November 16 Kogi gubernatorial election, wrote on his Twitter page today that only ‘fools with degree in stupidity’ decamp from the PDP to the APC.
“Only compound fools and people with degree in stupidity will leave PDP for APC. APC will be defeated in Kogi state”, he tweeted.
Only compound fools and people with degree in stupidity will leave PDP for APC. APC will be defeated in Kogi state.

Recall that Senator Melaye’s election into the ninth Senate was recently nullified by the Kogi State National Assembly/State Assembly Election Tribunal.
The controversial senator also rejected his appointment as the Director-General, PDP Kogi State Governorship Campaign Council. A move which fuelled speculations about his possible defection.
