Dino Melaye, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for governor of Kogi State, has stated that his failure to cast a ballot during the polls should not be held responsible for his loss.
Melaye finished the election in a distant third place, with the All Progressives Congress’s (APC) Usman Ododo winning the governorship.
There are allegations that the former senator’s failure to cast a ballot in the Saturday poll may have hurt his chances.
However, Dino contends that it doesn’t matter whether I vote or not—”People win elections from prison.”
“The issue of voting or not voting has no legal status,” he stated on Monday’s episode of Politics Today on Channels Television. Elections are won by inmates. It is irrelevant to the election legally. Whether I cast a ballot or not doesn’t matter.
