- Senator Dino Melaye commences vigorous campaigns ahead of the primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
- Melaye believes he will get the party's ticket and ultimately become the governor of Kogi state through an election
- If he gets the ticket of the party, the senator's major challenge would be the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC)
The move by Dino Melaye to become the next governor of Kogi has taken a fresh direction with the senator representing Kogi West district at the 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.
Melaye is battling to secure the candidacy of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which is an opposition party in the state.
He says 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 hurdle from the stakeholders of the ruling party who are not comfortable with him for a second term in office.
Legit.ng earlier reported that in his Sallah message, Melaye said Nigerians would soon overcome the country's challenges if the people all imbibe positive vibes.
He said: “This year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration offers us another opportunity to reflect on the virtues of love, peace and tolerance without which our nation can be united. If we all imbibe positive virtues, Nigeria will soon overcome its present challenges."
