Addressing supporters of the opposition party, Melaye also promised to improve the internally generated revenue through tourism which he said would attract investors.

He also promised industrialisation and exploration of the vast mineral resources available in the state He told party faithful and supporters that out of the 18 contestants jostling to be the governor of the state, he was the most qualified, most experienced, most educated and most exposed.

The candidate said, “I will not be a Muslim governor I will not be a Christian governor, I will not be an Egbira governor, I will not be an Okun governor, but I will govern with the fear of God.”

He also promised that those sacked by the present government during the screening exercise would be recalled within six months and their arrears would be paid in full.

“Don’t vote for the small parties that have no keyholders, without anything to offer, this is your opportunity to free yourselves from the grip of tyranny”  Melaye added.

Also speaking at the rally, a former vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, urged the Kogi voters to turnout en mass to vote for PDP and its governorship candidate, Dino Melaye, saying it was the only way to get the freedom of the All Progressives Congress.

“I am appealing to you for the sake of Kogi state, come out en mass and vote PDP on Saturday, I assure you of your safety, this is your opportunity to free yourselves, I hope you will not disappoint me”, Atiku stated.
