He said Dino has turned legislative business to “show of assets” and urged the political stakeholders of the zone to “kick-start the process of wooing Honorable Teejay Yusuf to replace him in 2019″.
“Teejay Yusuf would defeat Melaye come 2019 and it won’t be a surprise to us because he did that in the 2011 House of Representatives when Melaye’s 2nd term bid could not materialise.”
He described Dino’s two years so far in the Senate as “a total failure.
“As it stands today in Kogi West, it has become the more you look, nothing you see. There is no important project going on in our dear district, yet some people go around making questionable endorsements.” he said.
