Senator Dino Melaye has said he would challenge Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello “bumper to bumper” for the leadership of the state.
Dino who represents Kogi West said this on Wednesday in Lokoja, the capital of the state during a media parley to officially declare his interest for the governorship seat.
He also claimed that he escaped assasination attempt four times between 2018 and 2019 due to oppression from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He, however, vowed not to stop tackling the Bello government until it does the right thing for the people.
In addition, the lawmaker noted that he has better ideas than others who want to take the state’s number one position later this year.
He said he is the best choice for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s ticket to oust Yahaya Bello.
“I will challenge Governor Bello bumper to bumper. I can’t be intimidated by the constant harassment by the APC led government,” he said.
“I am using this medium to challenge the NUJ to organize a debate among all the aspirants vying for the number one seat of this state.
“I am very convinced that some candidates will be taken off from here with an ambulance because they lack idea.
“Other aspirants have money than idea, but Dino Melaye has idea than money.”
