Why I Prefer Idris Wada to Yahaya Bello – Dino Melaye
The Chairman of the Senate Committee on FCT, Senator Dino Melaye has said that if another election was conducted today, he would vote for a former governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada and not the incumbent Governor, Yahaya Bello.
Melaye made these remarks at the launching of his new book ‘Antidotes for Corruption: The Nigerian Story’ on Monday.
The Senator served as the Chairman of the Transition Committee of Governor Bello, after he (Bello) defeated Wada during the Kogi gubernatorial election last year but their relationship has since deteriorated.
“If you put him (Wada) alongside Yahaya Bello today, I will vote for Wada. At least throughout his tenure, we did not agree but he never attempted to assassinate me.
“If you speak the truth, you will die and if you lie, you will die. I, Dino Melaye, have decided to speak the truth,” Melaye said.
