Season of Invectives: FFK Takes Dino Melaye To The Cleaners ” He is little better than a motor park tout”
-Femi Fani-Kayode, Dino Melaye
As the campaigns for 2023 Presidential election is ongoing and the parties as doing everything to outsmart one another, two leading political parties in Nigeria, the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC and the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP have become arch-rivals.
Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK) the Director of Special Media Operations, Special Media Projects & New Media in the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council recently threw cautions to the wind and gave it to equally loquacious counterpart, Dino Melaye who is the Spokesperson for Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Committee.
FFK took to his Twitter handle on Wednesday where he described Melaye with many unprintable names:
“Can a barely educated & ill-bred peasant like Dino Melaye ever rise above a well educated & enlightened Prince like me? It is like comparing a lion & a mongrel. It is like comparing a well-bred & well-trained racehorse with pure bloodlines to a farmhouse donkey.
“If not for politics where would this creature and I meet? Even if the peasant becomes President or has all the money in the world this can never be so. He can never be on top. He will always be below. I will always be the Head and he will always be the tail. I will always be the master and he will always be the slave.
“He will always know something in him is inadequate and lacking and he will always have a big chip on his shoulder.”
“An ill-bred peasant is an ill-peasant and he shall remain so his entire life.”
“He shall remain so from generation to generation because that is what God has ordained him to be. That is the will of God for him & his. The problem with street urchins & gutter snipes like Dino is that he cannot accept the fact that God has put him & all his under my feet.”
“So it was, so it is and so it shall always be from generation to generation.
His can never be above mine and mine shall always be above his.”
“It is a question of lineage, heritage, education and decent bloodlines: unlike yours truly he has none of the four.”
“He is little better than a motor park tout and that shall always be his lot and that of his wretched lineage. Today, by the grace of God, I am the Director of Special Media Operations, Special Media Projects & New Media in the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.”
“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 distincty 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 & the Presidential & Vice Presidential candidates. We have an organogram which is clear. I report directly to the DG & the candidate & no one else.”
“Though we work closely together, we have 4 big, strong, independent & distinct Media Directorates in our PCC each of which is led by a Director that is far bigger, brighter & better than Dino, each of whom speak for the organisation & each of which are far more effective & powerful than the scabby & ineffective media team in Atiku’s campaign organisation iun 2015 I was Director of Media & Publicity for the Jonathan/Sambo PCC but the position I enjoy today & the Directorate I lead is far bigger & better than that & so is our PCC. By way of contrast Dino is a mere spokesman & lowly messenger of Atiku & 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. The only thing he can be trusted to do is to follow the candidate around like a jobless pratt & deliver messages to the public.
“He does not even get a mention or have a place in their organogram& he is only one of 6 spokesmen in their PCC, out of which he is the most incompetent & least qualified. No matter how much he wiggles his fat posterior for Atiku he is just a clown, a thug, a glorified parrot & a mouthpiece for garbage. The fact that he cannot even comprehend or understand how a real presidential campaign council like ours works & is structured is a reflection of his ignorance. Someone tell him to remember his place & 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 & uncouth agbero & a bully. Baiting him also provides some comic relief for me during the rigours of this campaign.”
“He reminds me of a dog 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.”
