Kogi Poll: Governor Yahaya Bello Sponsored Thugs To Attack Polling Unit - SENATOR DINO MELAYE

LOKOJA, KOGI STATE, NIGERIA - The governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello sponsored thugs to attack my polling unit. 

The above was the submission of Senator Dino Melaye who equally insisted that Governor Yahaya Bello and the All Progressives Congress (APC) are desperate to hang on to power at all cost. 

Senator Dino Melaye who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Kogi West stated this while reacting to the terror unleashed on his polling unit by political thugs. 

According to Senator Dino Melaye: “I am calling on the security agencies and INEC to respect their promise that wherever ballot boxes are taken away, it cannot be recorded and that votes in that unit will be cancelled.

“All these areas they have taken ballot boxes and ballot papers away should not be entertained at all at the collation centre. 

"So that only valid votes will count because once a ballot box has been taken away, the integrity of those votes is completely questionable. 

"So, INEC should respect their promise and not allow these election riggers to have their way.

“For me, the election in my unit went over halfway before the hoodlums came and started shooting. 

"The bad thing is that one of the boys was shot and was taken to the hospital by the police.

“I am happy they have been apprehended and that our cry that Yahaya Bello wants to be governor, by all means, is already established. 

"All those arrested are all APC members and they have all confessed who sent them. 

'We must see the end of this matter because we will not allow it to be buried.

“This is not an election. An election that is militarised, an election where ballot papers and ballot boxes are easily carted away by gunmen is not an election. If you conduct this election 100 times, I will win.

“If they are popular, they will not introduce violence. All the ballot papers that were scattered were all PDP which shows my popularity and acceptability. 

'The difference between me and Smart Adeyemi is the difference between darkness and light.”
