Former Kogi-West senator Dino Melaye stole the show Saturday at the start of the re-election campaign of Governor Godwin Obaseki in Benin.
Called to address the physically distanced crowd at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Melaye warned all those who plan on rigging the September election to shelve the idea.
To the surprise of his audience, he said anyone contemplating such plan will ‘Receive COVID-19.”
He chanted the curse, like a prayer warrior, repeatedly: “Receive COVID, Receive COVID, Receive COVID”.
The Obaseki campaign has reportedly mounted billboards in Benin, attacking the Kano governor.
He also urged supporters to shun all forms of misconduct during the election, slated for September 19.
“We do not want bloodshed,” he said.
