Senator Dino Melaye, the spokesperson of the 2023 Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has again come hard on the president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the presidential candidate of the Labour party, LP, Peter Obi.
In his latest tweet on Sunday, Dino who represented the good people of Kogi West in the eighth senate accused Tinubu and Obi of being tribalistic in their respective choices of lawyers.
He argued that his principal Atiku is the only one that has a legal team that cut across the six geopolitical zones in the country.
He noted that Tinubu inaugurated a legal team that has 80℅ Oduduwa. On Peter Obi, he said he constituted a legal team that has 100℅ Biafra.
His words: “Atiku Abubakar’s legal team is the only Presidential legal team that cut across the six geopolitical zones.
