By Niyi Tabiti: There is no doubt that Dino Melaye is Bukola Saraki’s man Friday. The Kogi state senator is seen as the head of the Saraki Supporters Club. Youthful and ostentatious,he sees the senate president as his political mentor and strong backer.Ahead of the 2019 elections, Dino has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for obvious reasons. He must be politically clairvoyant for him to leave the APC early enough because the handwriting is on the wall for him- Buhari does not want him in the party again.
Dino might not attend senate plenary with drums and trumpets like football fans do in the stadium, but he drumming support for Saraki perceived Presidential ambition or return to the National Assembly as the senate president. is a firm supporter of Saraki and he is believed to work according to the Senate President. In a matter of time, Saraki will also defect to the PDP.
