Sen. Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the National Assembly, on Wednesday, pledged to revive the state economy and bring it to an enviable height within four years.

The senator, who disclosed that he would contest the presidency of Nigeria in the next eight years, stressed that his governorship aspiration was divine, NAN reports.

Melaye disclosed this at a media interactive organised by the Kogi State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) for governorship aspirants, at the NUJ Press Centre, Lokoja.

Melaye, a governorship aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said the state was blessed with abundant resources but regretted the pervading poverty and penury owing to maladministration and widespread corruption.

While noting that countries now depended on ideas to revolutionise their economies, he promised that Kogi, under his watch, would not depend on handouts in form of monthly allocations from the Federation Account to survive.

Melaye, who is the Senate committee chairman on aviation, said he would revolutionise agriculture and transform the abundant mineral resources in the state into tangible products that would earn the state good income.

He said that through ideas, galvanised and harmonised by quality leadership, Singapore was transformed from a Third World country to an economically-advanced nation, while Dubai became a high income generating city in United Arab Emirate.

“In four years, we will revive the economy of Kogi and the state will become the envy of others. I have gone round the world and I am sure that I have the necessary capacity and exposure to achieve this.

“I am talking about Kogi State and the generations yet unborn. Let us have public nursery schools, develop education, health and other core sectors to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor, and restore the middle class.

“The paradox of Kogi is that in spite of our abundance, we are poor. Kogi is too rich to be poor. We have to prepare our youths for the future through ICT. Today, ideas have overtaken oil.

“We are focused and intellectually mobile with vision and mission to drive the process.

“I will operate Kogi like an independent country. Kogi occupies 30,354 square kilometres of land, with a population of about 4.7 million people,” he said.

We could have as well seen it in your constituency.
DINO SHOULD FIRST REVIVE THE ECONOMY OF HIS CONSTITUENCY FISRT AND BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE POOR AND THE RICH ALSO THERE.
 

THE 2 PROJECT I HAVE SEEN DONE BY DINO SO FAR ARE
1. HE BOUGHT A  GENERATION FOR  A COMMUNITY WITH NO DIESIEL TO POWER IT
2. AN ICT BUILDING WITH NO COMPUTER HE RECENTLY BUILT.

HE WANT TO USE THE SAME BRAIN TO RULE NIGERIA...……………...NA WA OOOOOOOO
