Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Timi Frank, has described the tribunal judgement which sacked Dino Melaye as senator representing Kogi west as a distraction for his governorship ambition.
Frank accused the governing APC of being responsible for the judgement which he described as miscarriage of justice, adding that the APC was afraid that if Melaye gets the PDP governorship ticket, he will emerge winner of the Kogi state governorship election.
The former APC spokesman and political activist who was reacting to the judgement of the three-man panel
expressed optimism that Appeal Court will do justice to the case.
Frank asked Dino Melaye’s constituents to be resolute and be rest assured that the outspoken Senator truly won his election.
He commended the chairman of the panel “for standing by the truth,” added that “all efforts by the desperate All Progressives Congress to remove the best performing Senator from the red chamber will fail woefully at the Appeal Court.
“Lies may succeed for a while but the truth will surely prevail. I urge the vibrant Senator Melaye not to lose focus, believe in God of justice and surely bear in mind that all his enemies will be put to shame.”
He also called on Melaye’s constituents to stand by him and not allow “evil to prevail on their worthy representative,” said the Senator’s governorship ambition should not be threatened by the tribunal judgment which he described as distraction
The political activist revealed that the ruling APC elements were behind the ‘miscarriage of justice’ at the tribunal on Friday, “because they are afraid that if Senator Dino Melaye finally secure the governorship ticket of the PDP, he will certainly win the election and uproot APC in Kogi state.”
