Wike Saying I’m Not Qualified To Be Governor Can Only Be Attributed To ‘Psychotic Disorderliness’ – Melaye

A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) aspirant in the coming governorship primary in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye, says the claim by Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike that he (Melaye) does not have what it takes to be governor, can only be attributed to “psychotic disorderliness.”

The former senator said this as he reacted to Wike’s comments earlier on Tuesday, discrediting his gubernatorial ambition.

According to Melaye, going by his pedigree in politics, he is more qualified to be governor than Wike.

The PDP stalwart also played down Wike’s influence, recalling how he failed to support PDP’s Ademola Adeleke in Osun, still Adeleke emerged governor.

Melaye said, “I will want Nigerians to know that Wike was my biggest supporter when I ran for governorship in 2019, financially, and even otherwise. Apart from funding me to the tune of hundred of dollars in the last governorship election in 2019, He provided his private jet to drop me in Kogi on the day of the primary, that is to show you the level, magnitude and intensity of his support and belief in me.

“So the man who saw competence and capacity supported me and invested in that project, today in 2023, is saying that I am not qualified, the only explanation to that is psychotic disorderliness. The only explanation to that is mental fatigue. Because I am not a bootlicker, I refuse to walk in alliance with your myopic agenda, because I have refused to corroborate your intellectual stagnancy. I am more qualified to be governor.

“To the glory of God, I have nine university degrees, a member of the House of Reps, I have been elected twice to the Senate, I have been aide to the president of federal republic of Nigeria, so I don’t know who is more qualified to be governor between me and wike.”

He added, “Wike should be reminded that Kogi is not Rivers, and the people of Kogi State would not worship any foreign God.

“Above all, Wike should also understand that power belongs to God, and He gives it to whoever he wants, even the basest of men. And but for this absolute and indiscriminate dispensation by God, how did a person like Nyesom Wike become a governor? Is it his oratory, diligence, finesse, wealth or intellectual endowment?”
