Kogi: I prefer Wada to Bello — Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West at the National Assembly said yesterday that if another election is to be conducted today,  he will vote for the immediate past governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada, against the incumbent governor, Yahaya Bello.

Bello, defeated Wada who was the incumbent governor during the Kogi gubernatorial election held last year.

Melaye, who belongs in the same party with Governor Bello, had been at loggerhead with the governor.

Melaye, who spoke at the launching of a book he wrote titled:  ‘Antidotes for corruption: The Nigerian Story,’ had served as the chairman of the transition committee of Governor Bello, but their relationship deteriorated soon after the handing over.

According to him, “If you put him (Wada) alongside Yahaya Bello today, I will vote for Wada. At least throughout his tenure, we did not agree but he never attempted to assassinate me. If you speak the truth, you will die and if you lie, you will die. I, Dino Melaye, have decided to speak the truth,” he said.
