Dino Melaye has blasted the leadership of ruling party, the All Progressives’ Congress (APC), for allowing the presidency to control it and making it a lifeless party.
The lawmaker representing Kogi West took to his Twiter account (@dino_melaye) on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, to criticise the party despite being a member himself.
He posted, “A party in power is suppose to guide the presidency in implementing party manifesto, policies, programmes & promises. Instead the presidency controls the party like a car steerin the weak leadership of the party became lifeless. The story of APC. There was a party called APC!!!”
During another interview in April 2018, he accused the party of failing to fulfill its promises to Nigerians because it is disorganised. He further said the party may be in grave danger if it fails to implement its manifesto before the 2019 general elections.
He said, “So far, APC has not taken charge in implementing the manifesto they promised Nigerians. The party is not organised or showing capacity and capability.
“I do hope that in 2019, what we sold to Nigerians is the manifesto and the ideology of the party, but the party has taken the backseat.
“In 2018, I do expect that the party will take her rightful place in pushing government to implement the manifestos that was sold to the people. If we don’t do that, there’s a grave danger.”
He has failed to confirm that he’ll recontest for his senatorial seat on the platform of the APC, noting that he couldn’t say for certain.
