Senator Dino Melaye paid a solemn visit to his spiritual father, the National President of The Apostolic Church Nigeria (TACN), Apostle S.E. Igwe who prayed and commissioned him to go and ‘conquer’.
The senator who is representing Kogi west Senatorial district of Kogi state is a member of The Apostolic Church Nigeria, Oke-Ayo (Illuafon) assembly in Ayetero-Gbede, Kogi state. Dino Melaye is the Senator-elect under the platform of People Democratic Party PDP for the second term in office.
Dino Melaye said, he is “Apostolic boy” and that the God of Apostolic is always with him and He will see him through. For the task ahead, I came for Papa’s special blessings, anointing and fortification to excel in my second assignment for the people of Kogi west, Kogi and Nigeria at large. He said
It will be recalled that senator Dino was re-elected to represent the people of kogi west senatorial district for the second term and will be sworn in later this month of June as the member of the 9th assembly.
Melaye is the main opposing force and a vocal voice for the main opposition PDP in the upper chambers of the national assembly. He was given the best performing and outspoken senator in the 8th assembly. Melaye also won the ‘Senator of the year’ award in 2017 and 2018
The “Spiritual fortification” received by the senator might be in tandem with the task ahead, as he will be vying for other political positions this year.
Daily Tells can authoritatively reveal what is already known in the public domain that Mr. Dino will contest for either of these positions or both, senate minority leader or governorship position for Kogi state later this year.
Dino Melaye has been at political war with APC both in the national and the state. The Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello has been in political battle with the senator since he decamped to PDP.
