PDP Appoints Dino Melaye 2019 Presidential Campaign Spokesman



The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has appointed Dino Melaye, a senator Kogi West at the Nigerian Senate as the spokesman of its Presidential Campaign Council for 2019 election.
News reports that the development is coming a day after the opposition party inaugurated its Campaign Council. The Council is chaired by Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Melaye, who defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP in July, announced his appointment as the Spokesman for the team on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Friday morning.
The Kogi West lawmaker tweeted: “Thank you PDP for my appointment as Director incharge of Civil Societies/NGO’S and Campaign Spokesperson in the PDP Presidential Campaign. We shall usually overcome. Light will always rejoice over darkness. Power to the People.”
Meanwhile, this is not the first time Melaye will be acting as a spokesperson as he held the same position for Bukola Saraki when he was contesting for the Senate Presidency in 2015.
Atiku Abubakar is the 2019 presidential flag bearer of the PDP. He is seeking to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari, who assumed the position after several trials.
