Dino Melaye Pledges Four-Year Transformation for Kogi State

Bold Promises for Economic Growth

Senator Dino Melaye, the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State, has unveiled ambitious plans for the state’s reconstruction and economic development within a four-year tenure.

He emphasized the potential growth of the Ajaokuta Steel Company and the Itakpe Iron Ore Mining Company as crucial components of his vision for the state.

Strategic Vision for a New Lokoja

During the PDP’s concluding campaign rally in Lokoja, Melaye outlined his strategic vision for the state, drawing parallels with global cities like New York, New Zealand, and New Delhi.

He expressed his commitment to building a “new Lokoja” and positioning Kogi as a strategic and prosperous state.

Leveraging Abundant Mineral Resources

Melaye highlighted Kogi’s abundance of mineral resources, ranging from uranium and titanium to lithium, gold, and crude oil.

He lamented that only limestone had been tapped, pledging to explore, develop, and commercialize the untapped resources.

His vision aims to harness these resources for increased revenue generation (IGR) and overall state development.

Educational Background and Atiku’s Endorsement

Positioning himself as the most educated, experienced, and exposed among the 18 candidates in the election, Melaye underscored his training under former Vice-President Abubakar Atiku.

Atiku, in turn, endorsed Melaye as the most qualified candidate to lead Kogi, urging residents to rally behind him for a transformative change.

Call for Massive Votes and State Liberation

With a plea for massive voter support, Melaye called on the people of Kogi to cast their votes in his favor.

Atiku echoed this sentiment, urging residents to unite in delivering substantial votes for Melaye on election day to liberate the state from what he described as the adverse effects of the current APC administration under Governor Yahaya Bello.
