Kogi guber: He’s never contested elections in his life – Melaye mocks Ododo



The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kogi State, Dino Melaye has said his counterpart from the All Progressives Congress, APC, Usman Ododo lacks the quality to rule the state.


Melaye said Ododo has never contested an election in his life, not even a class monitor.


He noted that PDP would always present a better candidate than the APC.


The former Kogi West Senator spoke on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme on Tuesday.


According to Melaye: “PDP is as old as the Fourth Republic in this country, parties like APC are operating for less than a decade, so the PDP will always present a better candidate.


“For example, [the] APC candidate is a civil servant who just left office about one month ago as the Auditor General of the local government. What’s his pedigree? What’s his experience? He’s never contested any election in his life not even being a class monitor.


“You can’t compare him with me; I have been a presidential aide, a member of the House of Representatives, [and] won election into the Senate twice. I have the political and intellectual experience to govern.”
