The member representing Kogi west senatorial district in the National Assembly and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) flagbearer in the next gubernatorial poll in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye, has said that what the state is witnessing is ”Greedocracy and not Democracy.”
According to the controversial lawmaker who promised to bring democracy to the state if elected as the next governor of the state he said his final destination is the presidency but sees the governorship race as a stepping stone towards achieving his desire,
He made this known during a meeting with PDP Party EXCOS at the party secretariat in Lokoja on Wednesday, July 31st.
In his own words:
“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 no body, 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,”
