KOGI: I mobilised delegates for PDP gov primary with anointing oil – Melaye

THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the November 11 Kogi State governorship election, Dino Melaye, has attributed his victory in last Sunday’s primary to God, saying he mobilised his delegates with “anointing oil”.

Asked to respond to allegations that delegates were financially induced, he hinted at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Crimes Commission (ICPC) knowing more than he does.

“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 told Channels TV.

Asked further how he mobilised his delegates, the senator disclosed the unusual approach he took, quoting a passage from the Bible.

“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.
