Tinubu: Dino Melaye mocks Okorocha, Tunde Bakare, others, nicknames Yahaya Bello
A former federal lawmaker, Senator Dino Melaye has mocked some of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirants.
The national leader of the APC and former Lagos State Governor, Tinubu, scored 1,271 to defeat his closest challenger, Rotimi Amaechi, who polled 316.
Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, came third in the primary, polling 235, Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, scored 152 votes, while Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello managed 47 delegates’ votes.
Others are Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi with 28 votes, Prof Ben Ayade of Cross River State with 37, while Imo West Senator, Rochas Okorocha came out with 0 vote, Ahmed Yerima scored 4, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu -1, Emeka Nwajuba – 1, Jack Rich – 0, Mokelu – 0, and Pastor Tunde Bakare – 0.
The organisers announced that 13 votes were voided. And this means that about seven aspirants scored less than the voided votes in the exercise.
And Melaye has found an occasion to mock these aspirants and also changed the name of his Governor, Yahaya Bello to AK47.
“The ruling [party] conducted its national convention and presidential primaries between 6th-8th June, 2022 and the results were announced yesterday.
“Voided votes got more votes than 7 APC Presidential Aspirants namely: Ahmed Yerima 4, Ogbonna Onu 1, Nwajiuba 1, Rochas Okorocha 0, Jack Rich 0, Mokelu 0, Pastor Tunde Bakare 0.
“Meanwhile Yahaya Bello who is 47 years old scored 47 votes and due to ‘Tatatatatata’ tendency now nicknamed AK47,” he tweeted on Wednesday night.
