‘Wike Called Me 19 Times Within Two Hours Begging To Be Atiku’s Running Mate’ – Melaye (VIDEO)

The former lawmaker representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye, has described Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike as a man with “no integrity” and “a pretentious character.”

Mr. Melaye said this in a video of his interview with AIT, which has gone viral on the internet, claiming that the Rivers governor “lobbied us and promised us heaven and earth to make sure Atiku made him vice presidential candidate.”

He was reacting to comments credited to Mr. Wike on Tuesday, in which he said Melaye lacks what it takes to be Kogi State governor.

He was said to have given the verdict during an interview with selected journalists in Port Harcourt.

But responding, Melaye tore Wike’s character to pieces, recalling how he called him 19 times “within two hours when former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was about to pick his running mate, begging me to make sure he picks him (Wike).”

He said, “He (Wike) spent hours at the airport, waiting for me to call him that Atiku has picked him as running mate.

“The man was so desperate to be vice president. Because he did not get it, he now started a southern agenda.

“I don’t believe in such unprincipled and zero integrity character like Nyesom Wike.

“Wike was the one who brought Ayu; Wike was the one who sponsored Ayu and made sure all the governors endorsed Ayu. That was why there was no election for the national chairman position at the convention then.

“Now you say Ayu must go and the chairman must go to the South. Maybe, it was because of the alcohol he took, maybe he thought Ayu was from Abia State when he was supporting him.

“He only supported Ayu to fulfill his own selfish ambition of becoming the presidential candidate from the South.”

Melaye recalled that it was the same Wike, who wants the chairmanship of the PDP to go to the South, that removed his “brother and mentor,” Uche Secondus from that position.

“So a character like that, who is not stable, and who is influenced by alcohol and other things I don’t know should not be taken seriously.”

The former senator warned the Rivers State governor “to stay on his own lane.

“If he does his gara-gara come my lane, I would grind him.”
