The Chairman of the Senate Committee on FCT, Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi), said on Monday that if another election was to be conducted, he would vote for candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and former Governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada, against the incumbent Governor, Yahaya Bello.
Bello, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated Wada of the PDP during the concluding part of the Kogi gubernatorial election held last year.
Melaye of the same party with Governor Bello had been at loggerhead with the governor.
Speaking at the launching of a book he wrote titled, ‘Antidotes for corruption: The Nigerian Story,’ Melaye had served as the chairman of the transition committee of Governor Bello, but their relationship deteriorated soon after the handing over.
According to him, “If you put him (Wada) alongside Yahaya Bello today, I will vote for Wada. At least throughout his tenure, we did not agree but he never attempted to assassinate me. If you speak the truth, you will die and if you lie, you will die. I, Dino Melaye, have decided to speak the truth,” he said.
