2023: Dino Melaye says Atiku will defeat Tinubu in Lagos

Meanwhile, Senator Dino Melaye, spokesman of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku, has said his principal will floor Tinubu in Lagos state.

Tinubu has been in control of Lagos state since 1999 when he was elected governor. Although he left in 2007, he still wields a large influence in the state, determining who gets what as far as politics is concerned.

However, speaking in an interview on Trust TV, Melaye said though Osun is the “ancestral home” of Tinubu, he was defeated by the PDP, which removed his first cousin as governor.
