The Labour Party has adopted the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Dino Melaye, as its candidate for the November 11th Kogi State Governorship Election.
Melaye made the announcement on Friday via his X (formerly Twitter) page. He said the alliance was to remove Kogi State from the darkness of the APC-led government of Governor Yahaya Bello.
“After a wide consultation and in the interest of our dear State, the Labour Party on this day has resolved to adopt the PDP Gubernatorial Candidate, Senator Dino Melaye as its candidate for the November 11th Kogi State Governorship Election,” Melaye said.
Melaye will face off against other candidates, including Ahmed Ododo of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
