Former Kogi state Senator and spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic People, PDP, Presidential Campaign Management Committee, Dino Melaye has stated that the supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi were given money to mobilize a rally in Abuja.

According to him, the so-called Obi supporters were just hungry Nigerians paid N1000-N2000 and assembled from all parts of Abuja and Nigerians, in general, to stand to say they were Obi-dients.

Melaye insisted that the forthcoming presidential election is between the presidential candidate of the PDP and the others, adding that Peter Obi’s presence at the recently concluded governorship election in Osun State did not make his party a challenger.

“Just like if you go to court they’ll say Federal Government vs Dino Melaye and others and this particular case you have Atiku Abubakar and others including the APC, Labour Party, SDP, NNPP all of them are others in this regard,” Melaye said on Arise TV’s The Morning Show

“And I want to tell you that to assemble crowd is just to bring out money. Mobilization is very very cheap in this country.

“People are hungry. If you go to Nyanya, Mararaba people were being loaded in buses from Lugbe and every part of the country to stand and say they’re supporting…let them to the election.

“I think Peter Obi was in Osun. He spoke in Osun, and we saw the result of the Labour Party in Osun – 2700 votes – while PDP was counting four hundred and something thousand votes…so it’s not about the commercial mobilization of the people.

“Nigerians are hungry definitely if you go to Mararaba today to say you need 5000 people with the blow of a whistle, they’ll assemble and collect their N1000 or N2000. It is not the match on the streets that will determine the votes.

“We’re talking of proper votes and Nigerians know that Atiku is speaking to the issues. We’re not on hype movements.”
