The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the November 11 Kogi State governorship election, Dino Melaye, has revealed he mobilised his delegates with “anointing oil.”
Following the much maligned primary election, Melaye denied claims that the exercise was manipulated.
Asked to respond to allegations that delegates were financially induced, he said he isn’t a staff of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Crimes Commission (ICPC), attributing his success to God.
“I’m not a staff [member] of the EFCC or ICPC. I wouldn’t know if there was money shared. But if, at my level, I cannot finance a primary, then there’s a problem somewhere. But definitely, God bankrolled me. I bank with the almighty God,” he said on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday, April 18,
“I gave them anointing oil and it did the magic. I just told you that I believe in Philippians 4:19 that God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. And I am telling you that He did it,” he said.
