I Once Owned A D0g Named Dino Melaye - Femi Fani-Kayode Reveals

By Femi Fani-Kayode

The problem with ill-bred street urchins and gutter snipes like Dino Melaye is that he cannot accept the fact that God has put him and all that are his firmly under my feet.

So it was, so it is and so it shall always be from generation to generation.


Today, by the grace of God, I am the Director of Special Media Operations, Special Media Projects and New Media in the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Organisation.

This is a great honor and responsibility and I am very proud of it as I am of our candidate.

The Directorate I lead is massive.

It is distinct and it stands on its own and we have over 150 members in my team, each of whom is more capable and effective than Dino.

I do not work under anyone but the DG and the Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates.

We have an organogram which is very clear.

I report directly to the DG and the candidate and no one else.

Though we work closely together, we have four big, strong, independent and distinct Media Directorates in our PCC each of which is led by a Director that is far bigger, brighter and better than Dino, each of whom speak for the organisation and each of which are far more effective and powerful than the scabby and ineffective media team in Atiku’s entire campaign organisation.

In 2015 I was Director of Media and Publicity for the Jonathan/ Sambo PCC but the position I enjoy today and the Directorate I lead is far bigger and better than that and so is our entire PCC.

By way of contrast Dino is a mere spokesman and lowly messenger of Atiku and heads no Directorate in the Atiku/Okowa PCC.

Unlike our official spokesman, Festus Keyamo SAN, who heads our Directorate of Public Affairs, Dino could not be trusted with a Directorate because his boss Atiku understands his childish and volatile disposition and obvious limitations.

Simply put he could not be trusted to lead anyone.

The only thing he can be trusted to do is to follow the candidate around like a jobless pratt and and run and deliver messages to the public.

He does not even get a mention or have a place in their organogram and he is only one of 6 spokesmen in their PCC, out of which he is the most incompetent and least qualified.

No matter how much he wiggles his fat posterior for Atiku he is just a clown, a thug, a glorified parrot and a mouthpiece for garbage.

The fact that he cannot even comprehend or understand how a real presidential campaign organisation like ours works and is structured is a reflection of his ignorance.

Someone please tell him to remember his place and report to his Director of Media Communications Dele Momodu for lessons.

He is far too junior to be attempting to lock horns with me.

The only reason I give him a little of my time is because I find him entertaining.

It gives me pleasure to torment him from time to time because he is nothing but a classless and uncouth agbero and a bully.

Baiting him also provides some comic relief for me and others during the rigours of this campaign.

He reminds me of a d0g I once owned whose name was also Dino.

Sadly it got run over by a car.

Let us hope this Dino fares better in life.
