In the aftermath of the Kogi State governorship election on November 11, Senator Dino Melaye, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, alleges a plot by opposition parties to secure his third position. 

According to Melaye, the event wasn’t an election but rather a distribution of votes. The declared winner, Ododo, obtained 446,237 votes, surpassing Murtala Ajaka of the Social Democratic Party and Melaye with 259,052 and 46,362 votes, respectively.

He specifically pointed out the allocation of votes to Ajaka in the eastern part of the state, drawing parallels to the deliberate victory of the Labour Party in Lagos during the February 25 presidential election.

Melaye emphasized that the allocation strategy was also at play in Lagos, cautioning against misinterpretation of the results. Addressing the issue of not casting his vote, he highlighted its legal insignificance, stating that people can win elections even if they are in prison.
