The Deputy State Women Leader of All Progressive Congress, APC, in Kogi State, Honourable Debora Oyiza, has warned Senator Dino Melaye and his group to desist from creating crisis in the state.
The APC Chieftain, who stated today in Lokoja while addressing journalists alleged that Senator Melaye  was only out to distract the governor from pursuing the vigorous agenda of developing the state adding that he cannot be the judge in their own case.
She said the section ‎of the party’s constitution which the group was quoted to back their action does not tally with the provision of Article 21 of their party’s constitution  to deal with party members.
The Deputy Women Leader debunked the allegation that the governor appointed non-APC members as commissioners and his personal aides.
“The Governor should be commended for his large-hearted policy of inclusive government rather than archaic policy of winner takes it all,” the statement added.
The Deputy Women leader, who took the controversial senator to the cleaners, said Dino who is the Spokeman of the group, seems not to understand what is called anti-party activity alleging that he was the first person to nominate Dr. Bukola Saraki on the floor of Senate for the Senate President as against the decision of the great party.
Debora said the senator was single-handedly given an opportunity to nominate Secretary to the State Government despite the fact that the Governor had never had  an encounter with the nominee.
She therefore appealed to the group to embrace peace having lost out in all their evil plots and manipulations against the governor.
