Okun Youth Alliance for Progressive Agenda has called on the Senator–Elect for Kogi West Senatorial District, Hon. Dino Melaye to use dialogue in advancing the cause of the people of the area.

The National President of the Association, Mr. Olorunsola Tunde who made the call in an exclusive interview in Lokoja stated that in view of the controversy that dogged his tenure as member representing Ijumu/Kabba federal constituency, the senator-elect should be more matured and diplomatic in pressing for democratic dividends to the area.

According to him, the senator-elect should use the opportunity of his election to correct the impression of the people on his combative nature of advancing his viewpoints, adding that the people of the area expect a refined and quality representation from him.

Mr. Tunde counselled him to avoid the pitfall of the outgoing senator, Senator Smart Adeyemi by always carrying the people along, respect and consulting the elders and political stakeholder and avoid larger-than life attitude in the assignment the people of the area has given him by his victory at the polls.

The National President advised Senator Adeyemi to accept defeat in good faith, stressing that what should be uppermost in the minds of the people is a concerted effort in bringing infrastructural development to the area.

He said, ‘the senator-elect will forever be remembered if he can rehabilitate Kabba-Ilorin road which has been a shame to the people who have to pass through Ekiti state before getting to Ilorin as a result of the road that is not motor able. I expect him to make this a priority.’’

He praised President Goodluck Jonathan for accepting defeat describing him as a man of honour, integrity and humility, stressing that Senator Adeyemi should emulate him in accepting defeat and work with the senator elect to attract development to the area.
