Melaye Hints on Defection to PDP in New Video

The lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, has hinted on his defection from the APC to the PDP in a video on his social media platforms on Friday night.

In the video, in which Melaye danced while singing a song common with those on the battlefield but with modified lyrics, described the opposition PDP as “home” that he had missed.

While mocking the APC, he also said, “bye bye to jati jati (a Yoruba adjective that means disarray).”

The controversial senator had, on May 31, 2018, opted to sit among PDP senators in the chamber upon his resumption after a long battle with the Nigeria Police, who arrested, detained and arraigned him in separate courts in Kogi State and the Federal Capital Territory Abuja over alleged gunrunning and attempted suicide, among other changes.

Melaye had urged the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, to direct the sergeants-at-arms to provide another seat for him at the side of the minority PDP section of the chamber, saying he would sit beside a former Senate President, David Mark, in the interim.
