High anticipation arises in Kogi West Sen. Seat
Adeyemi up against Dino Melaye
They’ve been a very high anticipation for the forth coming senatorial election of the Kogi West senatorial zone.
Who is to be the Lion of the zone? is the question puzzling everyone, as the serving Senator Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), is up against his previous counterpart of the All Progressive Party(APC), Sen. Smart Adeyemi.
A pioneer of the APC in Kogi State, Kingsley Fanwo, stated that the emergence of Senator Adeyemi as the party’s Kogi West senatorial candidate was a “historic testimony of a united Okun people.”
Fanwo claimed that Sen. Adeyemi is more politically grounded than the PDP Sen. Dino Melaye.
“The February 2019 senatorial election holds a historic moment for the people of Kogi West. As a people, our pride and ideals have been hurt. We are not what the world think we are. For four years, we have to live with a calamitous representation foisted on us by the Buhari Tsunami of 2015. In 2019, we will right the wrongs and prove to the world that Okun people are no clowns,” Fanwo said.
“When Senator Adeyemi was Senator, the entire Kogi West was his home. He was at home in Lokoja / Koto as well as Yagba. He has empowered many Yagba people and people all over the Senatorial District. His entrance into the race has changed the political course of Kogi West and we are hopeful he will win convincingly.”
The APC Chieftain assured Nigerians the intentions of the Kogi West people to return the senator to his office. He urged them the people to base their campaign on issue-base rather than personality fight.
