Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District has denied that he wanted to serve as the deputy governor to a former governor of the state, Captain Idris Wada.
This was contained in a statement released on Thursday by his media aide, Gideon Ayodele.
The senator disclosed that the information was meant stop the emergence of Melaye as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 3 governorship primary.
“Capt. Idris Wada lost the last election as a sitting governor and it makes no sense that Dino Melaye, a man with better idea and clearer vision, will queue behind such an aspirant,” the statement read in part.
