The Kogi State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed reports that Senator Dino Melaye (PDP-Kogi West) rejected his appointment as the party’s campaign DG for the upcoming governorship election.
Naija News recalls that the PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan had told newsmen that Melaye would be the DG of Kogi State Governorship Campaign Council for the party.
However, reacting in a post on his Twitter page, Melaye wrote: “Let me state categorically that I have turned down the position of Director-General of the PDP Kogi State Governorship Campaign Council. I wish PDP all the best. When the truth is a casualty there is chaos. Senator Dino Melaye”
The party in a statement on Friday signed by its spokesperson, Bode Ogunmola, admonished the public to disregard the news trending online.
The PDP stated that Dino Melaye requested a letter of appointment from the party and he was given with his acknowledgement
The statement further reads “He has promised to call for a meeting as soon as he is back from London.
“We, therefore, hope that if there was reasons for the decline he would have written back to the party.
“Since there was no official communication rejecting the appointment we urge the public and members of our party to consider the information trending that Sen. Dino Melaye has rejected his appointment as rumour and fake.”
