The Governornship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Dino Melaye, has ascribed his victory at the just concluded primary election of the party to God.
Premium Politics reported that Melaye scored 313 votes to defeat his closest rival, Idoko Ilonah, who had 124 votes.
In a post through his official Twitter account on Tuesday, the former lawmaker tweeted, “Only God could have done this.
“To God alone be the glory. Result of Kogi State PDP Governorship primary election.”
Similarly, a former governor of the State, Yomi Awoniyi, has described the emergence of Melaye as a ‘dangerous’, one.
In a statement on Monday in Lokoja, Awoniyi described Melaye’s votes as products of “tainted delegates list.”
“Without an iota of doubt, I make bold to say Senator Melaye’s victory is a pyrrhic one. This victory portends great danger to the unity of our party and the prospect of winning the November 11 governorship election.
“The primary that threw up Senator Melaye was flawed; 158 delegates, who emerged from the state ad hoc congress of March 29, 2023, were replaced by the woeful Senator Abdul Ningi Congress Committee, working in concert with Senator Dino Melaye’s enablers within the party hierarchy at the highest level.”
