Former Kogi East senator and the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Dino Melaye, on Friday, unveiled his running mate, Habeebat Deen, for the November 11 governorship election in the state.
At the unveiling ceremony held at the Abuja residence of former governor of the state, Ibrahim Idris, Melaye said the choice of Deen was unprecedented by any major political party in the state as she has all it takes to compliment him when he gets into power.
He noted that Deen, a former member of the Kogi State House of Assembly, will carry women along in governance and would make a lot of difference in mobilising Kogi Central women for the PDP success in the governorship election.
