The former lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye for describing the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, as a baby weight.
Speaking during an interview on Channels TV on Monday, Melaye said Tinubu is a baby weight politician compared to the Presidential flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
He further stated that Tinubu is lesser than the former Vice President in all ramifications, politically, medically, mentally, socially even religiously.
The former lawmaker added that Atiku cannot be compared to Tinubu in terms of political experience, connection, network and all other ratings.
He added that a candidate has to be mentally and physically fit to rule Nigeria, insinuating that the former Lagos governor is not fit to lead the country in 2023.
Following his comment, some Tinubu supporters took to Twitter to lambast Melaye, a staunch Atiku supporter, for describing the APC presidential candidate as a baby weight politician.
