Dino Melaye (Kogi West, APC) appeared to condemn the national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) when he took to social media to express his happiness at missing it.
The senator took to his Instagram account (@dinomelaye) on Friday, June 23, 2018 to post about how happy he is to be away from the country today which happens to be when the party is conducting its long-awaited national convention which he appeared to call a ‘joke’.
He posted, “Happy to be away from the joke going on in Naija today.”
The APC national convention, taking place at Eagle Square in Abuja, has been embroiled in controversy especially in light of the parallel congresses that were conducted during the party’s state congresses as well as complaints about the imposition of national executives.
Melaye has been heavily critical of the party and recently slammed its leadership for allowing the presidency to control it and turning it into a lifeless party.
The lawmaker is away in the United States supposedly to attend to his deteriorating health after a Chief Magistrate’s Court in Abuja allowed him to take leave from his trial where he has been charged with criminal conspiracy, causing damage to government property, attempted suicide and escape from lawful custody.
He’s expected to be back before July 8.
