The Senator representing Kogi West at the Senate, Dino Melaye also a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for the November 16 election says his administration will banish hunger from the state.
Melaye, who has promised to end hunger and hardship if opportuned to govern the state said he would build a new Kogi state.
Speaking with party exco at the party secretariat in Lokoja, and at the NUJ press centre where he presented his blueprint comprising his mission and vision for the state, Melye said:
“Kogi State is not witnessing democracy, what we are witnessing is government of the greedy, by the greedy and for the greedy; best put as ‘greedocracy’.
“But when I come on board as governor, I shall build a new Kogi State where ideas will revolutionise the state.
“My administration will banish hunger from the state. Kogi has no business to be poor. I shall look into agriculture and technology to turn around the economic fortune of the state.”
“I have no father, uncle, in-law or godfathers to pilot my ambition, but I have the requisite requirements to face the APC candidate in the election. “I fear nobody, I only respect human beings. I have been arrested 18 times within the last three years and I have 12 cases in court, but I’m still standing. I have what it takes to face and rescue the state from Yahaya Bello,” he added.
