The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the November 11 gubernatorial election in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye, has urged citizens of the state to come out and vote on election day and to stay to defend their votes.
This was as he pointed out that “all tyrants in the world are cowards”, especially when they are confronted.
According to a statement issued by the PDP, Melaye made this call while interfacing with the Women and Youths elected officials of the State Chapter of the party.
Melaye was quoted as saying “the November 11, 2023 election will be different from every other election held in the history of Kogi State. Although, there is a lot of fear in the air. While some are saying the votes will not count. Some are saying the APC will change the results. Others are saying no matter what we do, they will write the results.
“I am urging you with every sense of responsibility that do not submit your hearts to fears.They said they (APC) will write results but it will not happen. We will defend this election. We will not just defend the election, we will defend our people.
“So, let us not be afraid. ‘Make Una stand gidigba’. We shall defend this election, Melaye further stressed.
Melaye then urged the people of Kogi State to remain united, focused, at alert and ensure that they are not distracted in the quest to rescue the State from the stranglehold of the vicious, suppressive, corrupt and incompetent APC administration which has brought untold hardship, untimely death, strange diseases and general retrogression to the State.
