A former Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Yomi Awoniyi, has bad news for the governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Dino Melaye.

To him, Melaye has lost the November 11 election already due to the way he emerged as the candidate.

In a statement, Awoniyi said: “Without an iota of doubt, I make bold to say that 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 Melaye’s enablers within the party hierarchy at the highest level.

“It is unfair to give an aspirant 158 votes in a contest for 739 votes with eight other aspirants. Melaye’s emergence as PDP governorship candidate is dangerous. The primary election lacked credibility. Melaye’s votes were a product of a tainted delegates’ list.” (Freedon Online)
