The move by Dino Melaye to become the next Governor of Kogi State, has taken a fresh direction, with the Senator representing Kogi West District at the 9th National Assembly, leading his campaign to major towns in the State. Melaye has expressed optimism that he would eventually win the election in the State, as he released videos of his campaigns. He is battling to secure the Candidacy of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which is an opposition party in the State.
He said that he has secured the promises of some Delegates to vote for him.
If he gets the party’s ticket, he would be slugging it out with the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming election in the State.
Currently, the APC seems to favour Governor Yahaya Bello, but he has big hurdles to ahead of him from the Stakeholders of the ruling party, who are not comfortable with him for a second term in Office.
