A Group Known as OKUN4GOV Strategy Committee has expressed delight over the emergence of former Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye and House of Representatives member for Yagba Federal Constituency, Leke Abejide in the Primary elections of their respective political parties.

 

In a statement by Prof. Mike Ikupolati and Ambassador Sola Enikanolaiye and obtained by The Drum Reporters on Sunday, the Group said “We are very delighted to know that Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye and Honoursble Elder Leke Abejide have won their party primaries for the Governorship tickets of Kogi State on the platforms of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and African Democratic Congress respectively.”

“Your victories with a large majority in each case have filled us with immense joy as they give hope and much-needed impetus to our popular quest for an Okun person to become Governor for the first time in the history of our state.

 

“The time to close ranks to achieve success in our quest has come. We must all work together in unity to achieve this common objective.

 

“It is our hope that the larger interest of Okunland in particular and Kogi State in general will be the primary focus.

 

“As we have stated in several fora, the clamor for a Governor of Okun extraction is not from an entitlement point of view but for equity, fairness and justice.

 

“We are, by this medium, extending our hands of fellowship and desire for mutual respect and peaceful coexistence to our brothers in the other Senatorial Districts of the State while seeking for their understanding and support for our quest.
