Dino Melaye's warning to G-5 governors

He, however, warned that any attempt not to support Atiku at polls will be a move that will dent their political career and reputation in Nigeria.

Senator Melaye as quoted by Daily Trust said:

"But I’ve made the statement that if they fail to support the presidential candidate of their party, and they themselves are running elections, then they should be ready to celebrate their political obituaries.
“Every part of this country including their various States, candidates and party faithful, even APC members have decided that they’re going to vote the winning team, and that is the Atiku-Okowa ticket."
