Buhari Won’t Save Your Misdeeds In 2019, Melaye Tells Bello
Yesterday the Representative of Kogi West senatorial district , Dino Melaye advised Governor Yahaya Bello against believing that President Muhammadu Buhari would save him from being defeated in the 2019 governorship poll.
Melaye spoke during the launch of Safe Kogi Project (SKP) coalition, he alleged that Bello was hiding under President Buhari’s integrity to carry out misdeeds in Kogi State, saying he (Bello) would be deceived to believe that the President would save him from any wrongdoings.
His words: “It is sad to note that instead of embarking on development projects in the state, the governor has been parading and using the President’s name, thinking Buhari’s name is a special immunity.” Muhammadu Buhari’s name is not, will not and can never be immunity for any governor. It is sad that he doesn’t even know who Muhammadu Buhari is.
“The President will not support killings, stealing and when it is time for prosecution, I want to believe that his lawyers will use the President’s name to defend himself in court.”
Melaye, who is the group’ s Chairman, Board of Trustees (BOT ), said Kogi has never had it so bad in its history to the extent that the state under Bello has not accomplished any project. He also accused the John Odigie – Oyegun-led All Progressives Congress (APC) of supporting illegality as far as the affairs of Kogi were concerned.
Members of the group include Muhammed Ohiare, Atai Aidoko , Arome Salifu, Kabir Tijani and Tom Ohikeru , among others.
Director General of the group, Friday Sani, said the state under the current administration has become a mess because the government was directionless, aimless and lacked commitment to the people and development of the state.
