The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress, of being a violent political party.
Melaye who made the allegation against the APC while featuring on Arise Television programme, claimed that he had survived four assassination attempts in the course of his political ambition in the state.
The former Kogi West Senator however fingered the ruling party as the brain behind his woo, noting that violence is in the paty’s DNA.
According to him, tension has been part of the lives of the Kogi people since the APC came into power seven years ago.
“I have survived four assassination attempts; I have had 12 court cases of FG vs. Dino Melaye, and I have been attacked severally. It is not new, as it is in the DNA of the APC to be violent.
“Kogi State is like an evil forest that needs instantaneous redevelopment and needs a messiah,” Melaye claimed.
However, the PDP chieftain claimed that he hopes to be instrumental in ameliorating the pains of those living in the state.
According to him, it has never been this bad in the history of Kogi, as the state is more divided than at any other time in the history of the state.
