Senator Dino Melaye dumps APC, to join PDP


The embattled lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, attended plenary today appearing in a cervical collar and with clutches.

Senator Melaye made a dramatic appearance at the Senate, declaring his intention to cross-carpet to the Senate wing of the chamber.

The controversial senator had been away from the Senate, for over a month, when the Nigerian Police arrested him and he was subsequently admitted at the intensive care unit of the National Hospital, Abuja.

Melaye said he was no longer comfortable sitting on his seat at the wing of the All Progressive Congress (APC), saying he would cross over to the wing of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)
