In preparation for the upcoming Kogi State Governorship election scheduled for November 11, 2023, the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the Idah Local Government Area has taken a significant step by aligning its efforts to support Dino Melaye, a candidate under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Dino Melaye, the former senator who represented Kogi West, garnered the endorsement of the ADC in a move that showcases a unified stance within the local political landscape.
As the election date draws nearer, the ADC’s decision to collapse its structure to support Melaye is a strategic move that aims to consolidate their efforts behind a single candidate, bolstering their collective influence and advocacy in Idah Local Government Area.
The transition from supporting the ADC to backing Dino Melaye’s governorship aspirations within the PDP highlights a coordinated and strategic approach taken by political groups to achieve their objectives in the electoral process. The choice to back Melaye, a well-known figure with a history of representation in the region, is likely to contribute to the shaping of local political dynamics leading up to the election.
