I’ll rebuild Kogi within four years if elected governor, Melaye woos voters



Dino Melaye, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi, says he will rebuild the state within four years if elected governor in the November 11 off-cycle election.


Melaye spoke on Thursday during the party’s final campaign rally in Lokoja, the Kogi state capital.


“In four years, we are going to build the new Lokoja. York was in existence before New York came to be. Zealand was there before New Zealand came. Delhi was there before New Delhi came,” NAN quoted Melaye as saying.


“So by the grace of God, if you vote me in as governor, in four years, we are going to build new Lokoja.


 “Kogi is a strategic state. It is the richest state in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We are blessed with mineral resources from uranium, to titanium, to lithium, to gold, to crude oil.


“It is unfortunate that the only mineral that has been tapped out of all these numerous resources is limestone. We are going to tap the rest. We will explore them. We will develop them. We will commercialize them.


“We will distribute them. And we will improve our IGR for development of the state and better standard of living.”


Also speaking at the rally, Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2023 elections, said Melaye is the most qualified candidate to lead the state and urged residents to vote him as their next governor.
