Senator Dino Melaye has assured of a new Lokoja in four years if he emerges victorious at the poll.
The Peoples Democratic Party aspirant for Saturday’s Kogi governorship election vowed to rebuild Kogi State in four years if elected the governor, according to Vanguard.
Melaye made the commitment at the party’s grand finale campaign rally held in Lokoja on Thursday.
“In 4 years, we are going to build the new Lokoja. York was in existence before New York came to be. Zealand was there before New Zealand came. Delhi was there before New Delhi came.
“So by the grace of God, if you vote me in as governor, in 4 years, we are going to build new Lokoja.
“Kogi is a strategic state. It is the richest state in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We are blessed with mineral resources from uranium, to titanium, to lithium, to gold, to crude oil.
“It’s unfortunate that the only mineral that has been tapped out of all these numerous resources is limestone. We are going to tap the rest. We will explore them. We will develop them. We will commercialize them,” Melaye said.
