The Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye has reacted to report that he was seeking position of the deputy governor of Kogi State.
In a statement Thursday, Melaye denied that he wanted to serve as the deputy governor to a former governor of the state, Captain Idris Wada.
His media aide, Gideon Ayodele, revealed that the information was meant stop the emergence of Melaye as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 3 governorship primary.
“Capt. Idris Wada lost the last election as a sitting governor and it makes no sense that Dino Melaye, a man with better idea and clearer vision, will queue behind such an aspirant,” the statement read in part.
