Kogi guber: Dino Melaye as PDP candidate dangerous – Ex-deputy governor, Awoniyi


Former Kogi State Deputy Governor, Yomi Awoniyi has faulted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, primary election that produced Dino Melaye as governorship candidate.

Awoniyi warned that Melaye’s emergence as PDP governorship candidate was dangerous.

Stressing that the primary election lacked credibility, Awoniyi claimed that Melaye’s votes were a product of a tainted delegates’ list.

A statement by Awoniyi said: “Without an iota of doubt, I make bold to say that Senator Melaye’s victory is a pyrrhic one.

“This victory portends great danger to the unity of our party and the prospect of winning the November 11 governorship election.

“The primary that threw up Senator Melaye was flawed; 158 delegates, who emerged from the state ad hoc congress of March 29, 2023, were replaced by the woeful Senator Abdul Ningi Congress Committee, working in concert with Melaye’s enablers within the party hierarchy at the highest level.”

Awoniyi argued that it was unfair to give an aspirant 158 votes in a contest for 739 votes with eight other aspirants.
