Dino Melaye a former senator in the 8th national assembly has countered some governors who are agitating for indirect primaries in the 2023 general elections.

Saga Gist recalls that the Senate, after thorough deliberation by both chambers, recently passed the harmonized version of the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill, 2021 which allowed for direct primaries as a means of returning democracy to the people.

But some Governors of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, kicked against the move, calling on the lawmakers to reverse the law.

Dino, in a video on his verified Facebook page on Wednesday, backed the lawmakers, explaining that it is a better way to allow Nigerians choose their leaders.

He said, “I know that many governors are against direct primaries but I am not against it because democracy is the government of the people by the people and for the people.

“But ‘Delegatocracy’ is a government of the delegates by the delegates for the delegates and this should not be made to determine the collective interest of the people.

“Democracy is also not ‘greedocracy’. Greedocray is a government of the greedy by the greedy and for the greedy. It is time for us to take democracy back to the people who are the owners of the government.

“Government is not owned by the people in power but Nigerians”.
