Addressing the crowd, Dino Melaye expressed his concerns over the incumbent governor’s leadership style, calling it a personal approach that has hindered the progress of the state. However, he urged the people not to judge the entire tribe based on one individual’s actions, emphasizing that unity should prevail over divisive tactics.
“My fellow Kogi indigenes, let us stand together as one united family. It is imperative that we look beyond tribe or ethnicity and focus on the common goal of progress and development for our beloved state,” Melaye stated passionately.
Furthermore, the governorship candidate emphasized the need for a government that prioritizes the welfare and aspirations of all Kogi citizens. He promised to promote inclusivity, fairness, and good governance when he is elected as the next governor of Kogi State.

He further encouraged them to engage with their family, friends, and acquaintances back home, emphasizing the power of grassroots mobilization and community involvement in the electoral process.
As the campaign trail gains momentum, Dino Melaye remains steadfast in his conviction to foster unity and bring about positive change in Kogi State. With a passionate plea for a united front, he believes that it is only through shared goals and collective efforts that progress and development can be achieved.
