A senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye announced his return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a video released Friday night.
Senator Melaye who was elected to the Senate under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015 said he suffered in the party.
Recall that Melaye was elected to the Federal House of representatives under the platform of PDP but joined aggrieved group of the party to migrate to APC in the build-up to the 2015 general elections – He was actively involved in the APC’s presidential campaign
The unresolvable crisis between the governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello and Senator Melaye in the state shredded APC apart in the state.
Melaye was subsequently accused of sponsoring and providing firearms to thugs in the state and was consequently arrested.
His body language on return from detention and court cases showed the senator may part ways with the ruling party.
On Friday, Melaye announced his defection from APC to PDP in a well-circulated video he danced and mocked the ruling party.
Melaye’s song in the video: “PDP! Oh my home, oh my home, oh my home, when shall I see my home? When shall I see my PDP, I will never forget my home,” he sang.
“Oh my home, oh my home, oh my home, when shall I see home? APC suffer me o. When shall I see my PDP, I will never forget my home.”
