My Aim is to be The Governor Not Deputy – Dino Melaye Opens up
Dino Melaye has denied that he wants to serve as the deputy governor to a former governor of the state, Captain Idris Wada.
Melaye, a serving senator representing Kogi West district, debunked rumours that he is set to become the running mate to Captain Idris Wada, a former governor of the state, who is seeking to clinch the PDP ticket ahead of the election.
In a statement on Thursday by his media aide, Gideon Ayodele, the senator stated that the information was meant stop the emergence of Melaye as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 3 governorship primary.
“Capt. Idris Wada lost the last election as a sitting governor and it makes no sense that Dino Melaye, a man with better idea and clearer vision, will queue behind such an aspirant,” the statement read in part.
