The Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, has spoken on the report trending that he is stepping down from the Peoples Democratic Party governorship primary.
Recall that Naija News had earlier reported that five governorship aspirants of PDP in Kogi State stepped down from the party’s governorship primary election.
According to the report, the five aspirants from Kogi East were reported to have stepped down for the former Governor of the state, Idris Wada.
The decision of the aspirants to step down was disclosed by the Vice-Chairman, Kogi East Elders Council (KEEC) and former Minister of State for Health, Arch. Gabriel Aduku, while addressing journalists in Lokoja, the state capital, on Tuesday.
According to Aduku, the decision to “prevail on the other aspirants to collapse their structure into Wada was in the overall interest of the party and the state.”
Melaye in a video he released on Twitter stated that he is not stepped down for anyone.
He said: “There is a rumor by evildoers that Dino Melaye stepped down. I cannot step down because I am winning this primaries.”
“We are cruising into victory, Yahaya Bello must go, One love PDP.”
