BREAKING: Melaye opens up after Obi’s angry reaction at Arise TV debate [VIDEO]

The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council, Senator Dino Melaye, on Monday said that he “did not do anything to” Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Obi got angry on Sunday night and lashed out at Melaye during the presidential town hall session organised by Arise TV in Abuja.

Trouble started after Melaye called an attendee of the meeting ‘Obi people.’

On hearing the words of the former lawmaker, Peter Obi snapped: “Stop that Dino. Why are you always calling me? I won’t take that. This man is from ANPP (apparently wanted to say NNPP). Why are you calling him Obi people?”

Reacting to the incident which trended on Sunday night, Melaye explained in a video that Obi was annoyed because Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the Vice-Presidential candidate of the PDP, overshadowed him at the debate.

“He was not provoked, I was seating [sic] far opposite the top seat where they were sitting. I didn’t mention his name. And I was really surprised to see that type of outburst from a presidential candidate. Is that the type of president he is going to make? Just taking on people and showing unpresidential characteristics?

“I didn’t do anything. So that outburst is unwarranted, very unpresidential, unacceptable of a leader.

“A leader must be matured. One who wants to govern this country must be accommodating, must have a lot of patience, must have perseverance. These are basic characteristics of leadership anywhere in the world.

“You want to be president of Nigeria and you are reacting in such a manner in public? This one will slap ADC for office [sic] as president. So I want to clear the air, there was nothing, I didn’t do anything to him,” he said.

Melaye went on to say Obi was “so provoked” and carried away by the performance of Governor Okowa, adding that he deserves “a serious apology” from the former Anambra State governor.

  1. The issue of HE PETER OBI snapping at Dino Melaye misbehavior place before the Town hall meeting actually began. It is therefore ridiculous and mischievous for a Dino to call the meeting a “debate” and more demeaning and naked lies to talk about who “won”.
    Dino must know that Nigerians rejecting PDP and her presidential candidate is not the fault of HE PETER OBI.

    1. Mr Dino Melaye, I think Mr Peter Obi demanded your apology than you asking for it. Moreover, it’s been a long time you’ve been trolling on him. At a time, you said, you know that Peter Obi will becom President of Nigeria but he should wait for his time, what really do u mean? Are you chosen to be a mouthpiece of Nigerians or a proxy for the electorates in the whole country to vote? And as HE Peter Obi has rightly said “enough is enough”. Is it not bcoz of d money dat Atiku will be dashing out or has already dashed to u and all co-mates shameless & stinky corrupt politicians? and the corruption, kidnapping, abductors continua & perfect d hidden agenda of fulanization in another 4yrs or 8yrs, if ever Atiku bcoms the President? But by the special grace of God, it will not be in Jesus name. You know you can’t get such money if you follow Peter Obi. Dino Melaye, nitori dodo ti oun je, o ti jeki o pa ododo ti segbe kan- God is watching you all. You’re afraid of the forthcoming of Peter Obi being a President bcoz, he’s a man of more integrity when compared to all the Presidential candidates. Dino Melaye, I can’t just understand u, can it be acceptable to the Northerners that a Southerner take-over d country as a President from an outgoing Southerner President?
      Melaye where’s your faith, is it in a man or God? That’s how Sowore makes a jest of you that bcoz of the redesigning Nigeria currency, you just dash out #500K in an event. You heartless politicians keeping/hiding money in your different banks in your scattered houses you’ve bought with d money innocent souls- many of Nigerians have died untimely death. You’re all going to give account of your stewardship to Christ- be it Christians, Muslims, herbalists, Ifa priests, encarkers,(never mind d spellings pls) Ogun, ruscicutians, water goddesses etc. Dino Melaye, do u want your name in the book of life or in the other books? think deeply. Shalom

    2. The same people criticizing Dino now we’re the same people urging him on when he was insulting PMB on daily basis way back!

  2. This Dino is becoming so rude and constituting public nusance, why is he always on Peter Obi, is he the only presidential candidate, I think he should be cautioned.
    Enough of this nonsense from Dino.

  3. I don’t like the way Dino behaves,why is he always attacking Obi that’s why he will never win anything again in this country

  4. Dino you’re very stupid, do you think that we’re fool? We can’t read the handwriting on the wall. Please stop that your useless act towards an ordained Man from heaven. MUGU

  5. In sane climes, people like Dino Melaye have nothing to do in the corridors of power. Nigerians are no more interested in listening to him and his likes.

  6. Mr Dino Melaye, I think Mr Peter Obi demanded your apology than you asking for it. Moreover, it’s been a long time you’ve been trolling on him. At a time, you said, you know that Peter Obi will becom President of Nigeria but he should wait for his time, what really do u mean is there a register having the names of Presidential prospects? Are you chosen to be a mouthpiece of Nigerians or a proxy for the electorates in the whole country to vote? No wonder that a prospective Presidential candidate categorically said- Emi lokan- literally meaning it is his turn now. As HE Peter Obi has rightly said “enough is enough” if nothing good cannot come out of your mouth then Mechanic. Is it not bcoz of d money dat Atiku will be dashing out or has already dashed to u and all co-mates shameless, & stinky corrupt politicians make you all having diarrhoea of the mouth? So you preferred that corruption, kidnapping, abduction continua with their hidden agenda of fulanization of the country to be perfected in d next 4yrs or 8yrs, if ever Atiku bcoms the President? But by the special grace of God, it will not be in Jesus name. You know you can’t get such money u’re receiving from Atiku, if you follow Peter Obi. Dino Melaye, nitori dodo ti oun je, o ti jeki o pa ododo ti s’egbe kan- God is watching you all(with nothing we came into the world & surely we’ll go back with nothing) You’re afraid of Peter Obi becoming Nigerian President bcoz all areas of your getting money inappropriately will be closed. Peter Obi standout be a man having more integrity when compared to all the Presidential candidates – there’s no saint neither a perfected individuals. Dino Melaye, I can’t just understand u, can it be acceptable to the Northerners that a Southerner take-over d country as a President from an outgoing Southerner President?
    Melaye where’s your faith, is it in a man, money or God? Dino Melaye, that’s why Sowore makes a jest of you that bcoz of the redesigning of Nigeria currency, you just dash out #500k in an event recently. You heartless politicians keeping/hiding money in your different banks created in all your scattered houses you’ve bought with d money of
    innocent souls- many of Nigerians- children, youth, and adults have died avoidable untimely death due to insecurity inflation which have turned many Citizens into poverty. You’re all going to give account of your stewardship to Christ – be it Christians, Muslims, herbalists, Ifa priests, encancars,(never mind d spellings pls) Ogun, sango, rosicutians, water goddesses etc. Dino Melaye, do u want your name in the book of life or in the other books? think deeply. Shalom

    1. Mr Dino Melaye shld apologise to Mr Peter Obi and not the other way round.Dino ave been on Mr Peter Obi sincerely for a long time now.Really as Mr Peter Obi has said “enough is enough” You ave said be4 that u know that Mr Peter Obi will becom Nigerian President but it’s not time for him- who tells u dat? Are you now d mouthpiece of Nigerians electorates or you ave the register of prospective President’s with you that you’re marking? No wonder a Presidential candidate declared that it is his turn to be d next President of Nigeria. So Dino Melaye you want another Fulani man 2 takeover governance of Nigeria from d existing Fulani man? Do u think any Northerner will accept or allowed for a Southerner to take over from a Southerner candidate? Just bcoz of money, u ave eaten dodo(fried plantain) and ave forgotten all abt saying the truth – . Dont allowed money to captivate or overwhelmed your thinking faculty. Among all the Presidential candidates, I think Peter Obi is the better option amongst them. There’s no Saint or a perfect individual. Let’s join hands together and make a most better Nigeria thru justice, fairness and equity. A country flowing with milk and honey where there’ll be peace, security and progress. Let’s pray to God and vote rightly for a candidate after God’s own heart for us. Dino Melaye, make sure that u don’t allow d devil to rob u of your conscience by not voting rightly, due to monetary gains. We are not voting for any party in particular but individuals that we can rely on. The Lord shall help us all & His perfect Will be done. Amen! Shalom

    1. No one can give what he doesn’t have. Dino does not respect himself so how can he be respectful for once.He is always acting foolish like a little boy. He doesn’t at his age see anything wrong in Atiku asking for votes from Northerners because he is one of them, a Northerner, not because he is qualified or show what he can do for them.

  7. Dino should stop all these childishness laced with malicious intent to chase shadows. We are simply done with PDP and wanna give another party a chance. PDP as a party that is ridden with bullets of failure has lived it’s quota and should concentrate on resolving their party issues, rebrand the party with another name and flush all the bad eggs clogging up the embattled party. Stop attacking HE PO cos he’s on another level. Rather take your jokes to your match FFK who duly addresses and describes your ills.

  8. Dino Mumulaye,you are going for the jugular
    of PeterObi, because he is more and mightier than all the aspirants put together,that is why every Tom,Dick and Harry is looking for cheap publicity by slandering the person of PeterObi.You
    called his reaction,an unpresidential outburst, forgetting that since his immergence
    as the flag bearer of LP presidential candidate all other flag bearer of other parties has continued including you, to
    slander the name of PeterObi and his supporters.This is the first time PeterObi has to answer a fool like you looking for cheap publicity,to put
    you where y’all belongs.Remember all
    the shame you suffered in public for corruption
    in the hands of the police,More humiliation awaits all of you. Stay away from PeterObi .

  9. Dino has no respect. He was disgraced during his time in House of Reps and his clothing was turn to pieces.
    He also jump down from Police motor. He has failed elections many times. He said horrible things about Johnathan and when he left APC he then apologised. Dino has mo credibility and integrity so can not talk to Obi

  10. You have always been an irresponsible person throughout your life. You kept behaving like a child. You even be the reason why Atiku must loose

  11. Dino Melaye is a clown and should be advised to respect his age. Peter Obi had the right to rebuke him since he made a foolish comment. We actually need a president who can understand when a citizen is being mischievous and make him to retrace his steps. We have found such a character in Peter Obi. Let him preside over the affairs of Nigeria come 2023.

  12. Dino, the latest Nollywood inductee. What do you expect?. Looking for cheap popularity from Nigerians who are already ahead of him.

  13. His Excellency Mr President initially said change begin with me those the citizens and the five aims of government believe to make Nigeria great?
