Okowa Ex-aide, Ogude Urges Delta, Kogi indigenes to Vote PDP Guber Candidate, Melaye
Former Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Youth Development to Senator Dr Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, Hon. Austine Ogude, has urged Deltan citizens residing in Kogi and the state indigenes to vote massively for the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Dino Melaye, in the November 11 election in the State.
Ogude who is a member of the PDP National Campaign Council (NCC) for the forthcoming kogi elections and a sub Committee member of Civil Society made the call on Tuesday in Kogi state while addressing Delta and Kogi state indigenes as part of preparation for the forthcoming election.
The PDP leader noted that Senator Melaye is a sellable candidate, stressing that he has been so consistent with the PDP, and no doubt that he will deliver dividends of democracy when voted for as the governor.
Ogude described Melaye as a good ambassador of PDP at the National Assembly twice, noting that he had represented Kogi State well with unequal records and had a good political pedigree.
The Okowa ex-aide told the electorate that the present scenario in the state could be likened to a man who has gotten married to two wives, adding that it is the man who is expected to know who is better out of the two.
According him: “it is audible to the deaf and visible to the blind that Dino Melaye is coasting to victory when we put our house in proper trajectory.”
“Going forward, it is, therefore, imperative to seize this rare opportunity to present one Candidate who will fly the flag of the overall Interest of Kogi.”
