Receiving them in his country home Minna, Niger State, were hundreds of Kogi residents who showed their support with dancing, singing and masquerade performances, charging Sen. Dino to remain true to his nurture and promises
The national acceptance of Sen. Dino Melaye, the Peoples Democratic Party Candidate has been a display of the grace of God as millions of well meaning Nigerians across the South, North, East, and West have come to believe in the competence, character, capacity and compassion of ahead of the other candidates.
Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, without mincing words says, “Dino, you’re truly an illustrious son of Kogi state, and also the most qualified and competent candidate in this race. That Dino administration will restore integrity and excellence to chase mediocrity out of Kogi State.”
So it is with one voice that the entire Kogi Residents at Niger State pledges absolute support for him to become the next Governor of Kogi State.
While meritocracy remains the top criteria for the selection and election of leaders, it smacks of puerile brinkmanship to fail to recognise the gender and geo-ethnic sensitivities that exist. They are all inspired by the rainbow-support that the Dino and Hajiya Habiba Muhammad Deen candidacy has garnered from tens of millions of people across all ethnic groups in Kogi State, and beyond.
According to the Kogites in Niger State,
“We are proud of their antecedents of excellent service and integrity. We are equally elated that they are honest people. For people like us here who has been an advocate of reclaiming our identity as a people of honour, hard work, and honesty, the leadership they both provided at their constituencies is one we are glad to support their governorship ambition in its entirety.”
