A video of former senator Dino Melaye insulting the people of Igala and those who voted for the late Prince Abubakar Audu in the 2015 Kogi State governorship election has resurfaced online, and it has sparked a lot of outrage among Kogites. Many people are questioning Melaye’s suitability for the position of governor, given his controversial statements and behavior in the past.
In the video, Dino Melaye was seen making derogatory comments about the Igala people, who are the largest ethnic group in Kogi State. He also insulted those who voted for Prince Abubakar Audu, who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 governorship election. Melaye stated that while the people of Kogi State may have voted for Audu, God Almighty voted for Yahaya Bello, who was eventually declared the winner of the election after Prince Abubakar Audu passed away.
Many people have considered Dino Melaye’s statement to be anti-Igala and a mockery of the dead, especially given the fact that Prince Abubakar Audu was a respected leader and elder statesman in the state. Melaye’s comments have also been viewed as divisive and insensitive, given the fragile ethnic and political tensions in Kogi State.
Since the video resurfaced online, many Kogites have expressed their disapproval of Melaye’s comments and his candidacy for the governorship position. They believe that his behavior and utterances in the past have not shown him to be a credible leader who can unite the diverse peoples of Kogi State and move the state forward.
While some people have defended Dino Melaye, saying that he made the comments in the heat of the moment and has since apologized, many Kogites remain unconvinced. They argue that his statements are indicative of a deeper problem in the state’s political landscape, where leaders are more interested in self-promotion and personal gain than in serving the people.
In conclusion, the resurfacing of the video of Dino Melaye insulting the people of Igala and those who voted for Prince Abubakar Audu has sparked a lot of outrage and controversy in Kogi State. Many people are questioning his suitability for the position of governor, given his past statements and behavior. As the 2023 gubernatorial elections draw near, Kogites will be looking for credible and trustworthy leaders who can unite the state and bring about positive change.
