Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west, says he wants to banish hunger and rescue the state from Yahaya Bello, the governor.

Speaking on Wednesday at the state chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Lokoja, the state capital, Melaye said the state is currently witnessing a government of greed.

The senator, who is also an aspirant for the November 16 governorship election in the state under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said he would build “a new Kogi”, after which he will contest as a president in 2027.

“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’,” he said.

“But when I come on board as governor, I shall build a new Kogi State where ideas will revolutionise the state.

“I’m also not in the race to bamboozle you, I’m in the race to take the state to the promised land. In four year, we shall make the state the economic envy of other states.

“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.”
