Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Minister of Aviation, to social media to mock Senator Dino Melaye, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over his poor performance in the last Saturday Kogi governorship election.
The former Minister of Aviation wrote in a post on his social media handle X(formerly Twitter), claiming that it is politically over for Sen. Dino Melaye.
He wrote: “Poor Dino.
“Despite all his loud and boastful rantings, puerile noise-making, clownish behavior, crude bum-fuckery, infantile court-jesting, nauseating gorilla-dancing, gratuitous insults, foul-mouthed bluster, tough guy “gra gra” and area boy antics and in spite of his membership of the ‘Bugger Me Stiff United Football Club’, he received the flogging and trouncing of his pitiful life in the Kogi state governorship election.
“Out of the 751,000 votes that were cast, he could not even muster up to 47,000. That is approximately 5%.
“Worst still, he came in a very distant third in the race and some have even said fourth! How sad!
“This is a man that was once elected as a House of Reps member and a Senator!
“This is a man that mocked PBAT for his age, called him a drug dealer, accused him of being a drug addict, threatened to violate the honor of the First Lady, rolled all over the floor during the presidential campaign rallies in the name of depicting our President as an invalid and geriatric and threatened us with hell, fire, and brimstone if Asiwaju won.
“Well, today he is where he is and politically, it’s all over for him. How are the mighty fallen!
“It appears that the White Lion of Kogi made good his promise and has retired him from politics permanently.
“My heart goes out to him.”
However, INEC declared Usman Ododo, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the November 11 poll.
Ododo scored a total of 446,237 votes, defeating his closest rival, Murtala Ajaka of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), who scored 259,052, while Melaye scored 46,362 votes.
