A lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, has told the state governor, Yahaya Bello, to prepare for a defeat at the polls come 2019 and subsequent lawsuits for his crimes.
The lawmaker said that the governor should not expect to benefit from the goodwill enjoyed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking during the launch of Safe Kogi Project (SKP) coalition, Melaye said, “It is sad to note that instead of embarking on development projects in the state, the governor has been parading and using the President’s name, thinking Buhari’s name is a special immunity.
“Muhammadu Buhari’s name is not, will not and can never be immunity for any governor. It is sad that he doesn’t even know who Muhammadu Buhari is.
“The President will not support killings, stealing and when it is time for prosecution, I want to believe that his lawyers will use the President’s name to defend himself in court.”
