Dino Melaye spoke from the National Hospital where he had been receiving treatment since Tuesday after he reportedly jumped out of a moving police vehicle and sustained injuries.
“Thank you my people. God bless you all. Thank you for the confidence reposed on me. I will not let you down. I will always stand by the truth and the people at all times. God bless Kogi West,” Mr Melaye said in a Twitter update an hour ago.
“Every lie has an expiry date. Forces of evil will never triumph over forces of light. God is with us,” he added.
