Dino Melaye Announces Bid For Kogi Governorship

Senator Dino Melaye, Former senator in Kogi state, declares governorship bid, vows to end corruption and violence.This was revealed through a campaign poster posted on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday, March 29, 2023, with the caption “no more stealing and killings”.This announcement comes just weeks after Atiku’s defeat in the presidential election, indicating a potential shift in political priorities for Melaye.The former lawmaker’s campaign poster highlights his commitment to putting an end to the rampant stealing and killings that have plagued the state. Kogi, Imo, and Bayelsa states will be conducting their governorship elections in November 2023.

Melaye was a prominent spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council during the presidential campaign for Atiku Abubakar, who lost to current president-elect, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Melaye, who had previously contested for the PDP senatorial ticket in May 2022 but lost to Hon. T.J Yusuf, is now seeking a new political office to help combat corruption and violence in Kogi State.With his strong ties to the PDP and experience as a senator, Melaye’s candidacy may be a formidable challenge to the ruling APC’s grip on Kogi State politics. As the governorship race heats up, voters will have to decide whether Melaye’s promises of a better and safer Kogi are enough to earn their support.
