The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the upcoming November 11 governorship election in Kogi State, Dino Melaye, has alleged that his All Progressives Congress counterpart, Ahmed Ododo, will serve as a figurehead if elected in the coming election.
Melaye, who made this allegation while speaking on Channels Television on Monday, claimed that Ododo is being used to achieve Governor Yahaya Bello’s third term agenda under the APC.
According to the former federal lawmaker, Bello is using Ododo to achieve his third term agenda because he couldn’t be on the ballot anymore.
He maintained that the APC candidate would be a figurehead if elected because the outgoing governor would still be the one dictating in the state.
“Don’t be deceived that Yahaya Bello is not on the ballot. Ododo is physically on the ballot but Yahaya Bello is the one seeking a third term through a proxy.
“I will not want this debate to be about Yahaya Bello, rather I would like to market my political party and market what we have for Kogi State,” Melaye said.
