The brothers of former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, have mocked Dino Melaye after he lost PDP’s Kogi West senatorial district ticket to Tajudeen Yusuf.
Melaye, who represented the district during the 8th National Assembly, lost at the PDP primary run-off, which held on Tuesday.
He polled a total of 99 votes while the winner, Yusuf, polled a total of 163 votes.
Shortly after purchasing the PDP presidential nomination forms, Fayose was seen eating amala and ponmo, popular Nigerian dish, at a restaurant in Abuja.
Reacting, Melaye had berated Fayose for “demarketing” two PDP presidential hopefuls, adding that the presidency is a serious engagement that is beyond “eating amala and ponmo.”
However, the brothers, in a video posted by Isaac Fayose on his Instagram page, on Wednesday, said the former governor has been eating Amala from way back, adding that eating the delicacy has nothing to do with politics.
