Dino Melaye declares for Kogi state governorship race

Senator, Dino Melaye has declared his intention to join the Kogi State governorship race.

He made the declaration today in Ayetoro, Kogi state while formally informing the People Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in his constituency.

Hours after the report was published, Melaye posted a cryptic message on Twitter and also retweeted a story on his governorship bid.

“Kogites!! Here am I, send me,” ….“By the grace of God I will emerge the next Kogi Governor,” he said.

The lawmaker had defeated Smart Adeyemi of the APC to retain his senatorial seat. Ironically, Melaye, who was elected into the senate under the platform of the APC in 2015, had defeated Adeyemi, then a sitting senator and a member of the PDP.
