KogiDecides2023: Dino yet to vote as EFCC arrives polling unit


Dino Melaye

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dino Melaye, is yet to cast his vote a few minutes before the end of the voting process.
This is as operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrived at his polling unit.

Melaye is registered at Iluafon quarters, Aiyetoro 1, Ijumu Local Government Area of the state.

The PUNCH reports that Dino, alongside the candidate of the African Democratic Congress, Leke Abejide, popularly referred to as “Elder” are the two major candidates gunning for the position of governor from the Kogi West Senatorial District.

Electoral observers say Abejide who is a serving lawmaker may affect Dino’s chances at the governorship polls.

Kogi West which Dino hails from has never produced a governor since the inception of the state.

About 1.8m registered voters will decide the next governor of Kogi state, which is widely regarded as the “confluence state.”

Though INEC says 18 governorship candidates will be contesting the elections today, analysts say the election will be keenly contested between Usman Ododo of the All Progressives Congress, Muritala Ajaka of the Social Democratic Party, Leke Abejide of the African Democratic Party and Dino Melaye of the PDP.
