Dino Melaye, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate for the upcoming Kogi State election, has raised allegations that the incumbent governor, Yahaya Bello, is maneuvering for a third term through a surrogate. Despite Ahmed Ododo being physically present on the ballot, Melaye asserts that Bello is effectively seeking an extended term through Ododo’s candidacy.

During his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Melaye emphasized that the focus should not solely revolve around Yahaya Bello, but rather on promoting his political party’s agenda and vision for Kogi State. He drew attention to the precedent of the PDP unseating Abubakar Audu in 2003, expressing confidence in the PDP’s ability to repeat history.

Highlighting his extensive political experience, Melaye underscored his confidence in his candidacy, citing his past roles as a member of the House of Representatives and a two-time senator. Comparing his qualifications with those of his opponents, he positioned himself as the most educated and experienced candidate for the governorship role.

Asserting his commitment to local resource management, Melaye criticized the current administration for relying excessively on federal allocations, committing to bolster the education sector, and revamp the state’s university, which he claimed currently falls short of the required standard.
