The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has denied that he is after the life of Senator representing the Western part of the state, Dino Melaye.
He described Melaye as a liar and professional blackmailer.
Recall that the lawmaker had recently escaped assassination in his hometown of Okun area of the state.
Speaking with newsmen, Fanwo said, “I also heard of the allegation and it is an embarrassment to logical reasoning.
“Governor Yahaya Bello is not competing with Senator Dino Melaye for anything. He is the Governor of the State, father of the State and the leader of the All Progressives Congress in the State.
“The Governor has no reason to be after Dino Melaye’s life. Governor Yahaya Bello cannot hurt a fly. The allegation is not only irresponsible and false, but represent the height of pathological lying.
“There is need for the Senate to call Dino Melaye to order. He should stop embarrassing our revered Senate.
“Anyone who is a serial liar, morally bankrupt and professional blackmailer should not be making laws for us. Senators should be societal role models.”
