Senator Dino Melaye dumps APC for PDP

Senator Dino Melaye has dumped the ruling All Progressive Congress for Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, weeks after his public spat with the Nigeria Police Force.

The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District who has been bed-ridden for weeks, showed up to plenary today with a walking stick and neck support. He told a rowdy senate session that the Nigerian Police tried to inject him with a poisonous substance twice at the hospital.

The embattled Senator took his time to thank the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for their support, then asked the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to mandate the sergeant-at-arms to create a seat for him at the opposition wing of the chamber. Thereafter, he announced he would sit beside former Senate President, David Mark, pending the time a seat will be allocated to him, Premium Times report. He is however yet to officially join the PDP.
