The Kogi State governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Senator Dino Melaye, has promised residents that he will govern with the fear of God if he is elected as governor in the state’s forthcoming November 11 poll.
Melaye gave the assurance Tuesday during the PDP rally in Okene, Kogi state.
He was in company of party stalwarts including the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and a host of others.
“I’m going to be a governor with the fear of God. If you have the fear of God, you will not kill or steal,” the senator said.
Explaining his policy document for the state, Melaye promised to pay full salaries and provide adequate security in the state if elected.
“I want to assure you that Dino Melaye will pay full salaries. Those who have been sacked for no reason, our government will restore you back to the workforce,” he said.
On agriculture, Melaye assured his administration will introduce mechanised and plantation farming as well as build farm houses while employing graduates to run the agricultural sector.
“We are going to recruit our graduates and give them hectares of land with new technological means of farming,” he promised.
He added his administration will make sure that all the state’s mineral resources will be used for the benefit of the people.
“We are going to invest immensely in tourism. By the grace of God, we are going to restore back the Ajaokuta steel,” the senator added, urging the people to vote out the ruling All Progressives Congress and its candidate.
Melaye, who accused the APC of impoverishing the state, said: “We are here today to celebrate the political obituary of the APC in Kogi state.”
Melaye will be slugging it out with the ruling APC’s guber candidate, Usman Ododo, and the Social Democratic Party’s flagbearer, Murtala Ajaka, among others.
