A statement by Gideon Ayodele, his media aide, on Monday, said those carrying the rumour only wanted to frustrate him from emerging the candidate of the PDP.
He said, “This is a propaganda that holds no water. We are ready to take the mantle of leadership through a purposive leadership and nothing can stop us.”
Ayodele further urged all the PDP delegates to come out en mass tomorrow (Tuesday) and vote Dino Melaye as the flag-bearer of the PDP in the forthcoming November 16 election in the state.
It would be recalled that the embattled Senator had earlier denied an allegation levied against on Thursday, 27 August, where he was reportedly planning to become the running mate to Captain Idris Wada, a former governor of the state, who is seeking to clinch the PDP ticket ahead of the election.
