The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the November 11, 2023 governorship election in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye, has assured the people of the State that he will serve in the fear of God and be fair and just to all Kogites when elected as governor.
Senator Dino, who gave this assurance during his consultative visits to the Ohimege Igu of Koton Karfi, His Royal Majesty, Alhaji Abdulrazaq Isa Koto as well as the 11th Synod of the Methodist Church of Nigeria (Okun Diocese) in Lokoja, noted that his experience, performance as Senator and inner love for the people propelled him into the governorship race.
“As you are aware, His Royal Majesty, in the space of 4 years as Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I did 19 projects in your Kogi Local Government. I have a very special relationship with Kogi Local Government and by the grace of God, when elected as Governor, I will focus attention on the needs of our people, particularly the ecological challenges in this area.
“We are not unaware that the major business in this area is agriculture, trading and transportation. We shall make these ventures the focus of our administration by providing incentives that will encourage our people.
“I will be a Kogi governor that will govern our state in the fear of God. I will run an all-inclusive governance not as an Igala, Ebira, Okun, Kakanda, Bassa, Koto or Nupe governor but a governor for all under the guidance of the Almighty God.
“I congratulate you as the Leader of the Kogi West traditional rulers and I pray that under your leadership, Kogi West will produce a governor. I therefore seek your blessings as we go into the polls,” Senator Dino further said.
Responding, the Ohimege Idu said democracy has come to stay noting that even traditional rulers have always expressed support for the democratic process.
He described Senator Dino as a part of his Kogi Local Government who “is very much at home here.”
The Ohimege charged the Senator Dino Melaye Team to campaign on ideas and issues even as he gave him his blessings.
Also presenting himself to the Methodist Synod in Lokoja, Kogi State, Senator Dino recalled that since his emergence as the PDP governorship candidate in the forthcoming election, he had been going round the state to meet with Kogites from all walks of life.
“I have also been meeting with both Church leaders and Islamic clerics in our state to seek for their support and prayers ahead of the election,” Dino said.
The Bishop of the Methodist Church, Rt. Rev. Albert Olorunmade, prayed for the success of Senator Dino at the polls.
