Senator Dino Melaye, the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State has declared that his party will win easily in the November 11 governorship election.

Dino Melaye who made this known on Thursday while speaking at the inauguration of the PDP Local Government Election Campaign Committee for the 21 Local Government Councils of the state in Lokoja said neither Governor Yahaya Bello nor the ruling  All Progressives Congress (APC) are frightening him.

The former Kogi West senator cited insecurity, poor management, and nonpayment of salaries as reasons why the PDP would defeat APC in the election.

He, however, advised voters to avoid being frightened during the election and to turn out in large numbers to cast their ballots.

He emphasised that the current administration has been successful in separating the populace along ethnic and religious lines and said that Kogi State has become a laughing stock among other States.

Melaye added that no sane person would vote for APC, considering what the current administration has done to the State.

He said,
“This election is a walkover for PDP because of maladministration, poverty, non-payment of salaries, gratuity, promotion are not being cash backed and many more. The people of Kogi State are not happy as they are looking for a messiah that will save them from captivity.

“Dino Melaye and Habiba are saying here we are, send us. I want to advise especially our Local Government Chairmen, you have all become evangelists and Imam to encourage our people to come out and vote.

“Our people are afraid because APC has sold fear in the minds of the people. I am telling you that as Dino Melaye, I am not afraid of Yahaya Bello or the APC.

“I am assuring us, let the people of Kogi State show that we are not cowards. As citizens of Kogi State, we are not a conquered territory. We will come out and vote, and campaign in all the nooks and crannies of the State including Agasa, the home town of Governor Bello.

“The PDP is a party with plans, well organized, who uses power for the interest of the People. Today, any Kogites that are still thinking of voting for the APC have what I call Arthritis of the brain. No sane, logical human being will today vote for APC in Kogi State.

“Is it about our roads? In the last year, there has been no drop of water in Lokoja, the capital city of Kogi State. Is it about the dilapidated hospitals that have become mere consulting clinics? Is it about non-payment or percentage payment of salaries? Is it about insecurities of lives and properties?

“This is the first time in the history of our State that House of Assembly members and Commissioners have no vehicles. This is the first time in the history of our State that a permanent Secretary will be using Okada to move to office. This is the first time in the history of our State where workers were retrenched for frivolous reasons.

This is the first time in the history of our State that 120 Professors were ceremoniously sacked from Kogi State University. They are qualified Professors who graduated from first-generation Universities in this Country. The screening at Kogi State University took them out of the system. By the grace of God, we are going to build a new Kogi State.”

Here we go again! Captain Sensible Dino is talking again.
My question is "What happened to his case" I remember he forcefully jumped down from the back of the Police pick up van.
Also is Bukoka Saraki's case. What became of them? Most of the time.  Cases involving big men in Nigeria always get swept under the carpet.  Hence the reason why many people are not seated to commit any crime.
I see no reason why Dino should be allowed to contest any election. He's a political son of Atiku Abubakar. Like father like son. Born losers.
I'm glad for one thing though. He has stopped composing silly lyrics.
