This announcement comes just weeks after Atiku’s defeat in the presidential election, indicating a potential shift in political priorities for Melaye.

 

The former lawmaker’s campaign poster highlights his commitment to putting an end to the rampant stealing and killings that have plagued the state.

 

What you should know: Kogi, Imo, and Bayelsa states will be conducting their governorship elections in November 2023. . Melaye was a prominent spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council during the presidential campaign for Atiku Abubakar, who lost to current president-elect, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

Melaye, who had previously contested for the PDP senatorial ticket in May 2022 but lost to Hon. T.J Yusuf, is now seeking a new political office to help combat corruption and violence in Kogi State.

 

According to Pulse, with his strong ties to the PDP and experience as a senator, Melaye’s candidacy may be a formidable challenge to the ruling APC’s grip on Kogi State politics.

 

As the governorship race heats up, voters will have to decide whether Melaye’s promises of a better and safer Kogi are enough to earn their support.
