Kogi state, as it is known currently, may seize to exist by the time Governor Yahaya Bello completes his second term in office if the people of the state allow him, Senator Dino Melaye has said. Melaye, who represents Kogi West at the Senate, was said to have made the declaration in Kabba, a part of the state.
The Nigerian Tribune reports that Melaye also used the opportunity to donate the sum of N7 million to the seven local government areas in the senatorial district. The senator, who contested for the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and lost, urged them to boost the party’s campaign in the district.
He also told Engineer Musa Wada, candidate of the PDP, to concentrate his efforts on the other senatorial districts maintaining that Kogi West has all it takes to deliver victory for the party.
