Melaye's Recall: Kogi West voters endorse 52%


The move to recall the senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye may have gotten to new heights as voters in his senatorial district are said to have signed the document initiating his recall.


A total of 188, 588 voters, representing 52.3 per cent of the total number of registered voters in Kogi West senatorial district have approved the recall of Melaye.


The Special Adviser to the state governor on political affairs, Mr Pius Kolawole announced this on Monday in Lokoja while addressing party members from the district, NAN reports

He said that the collation of signatures of voters to that effect was carried out successfully on June 17.

Kolawole commended voters in the district for turning out en masse for the exercise, saying that Section 69 of the 1999 constitution backed their action.


“In 2015, we voted for Dino and now we are using the same method to return him home,” he said.

According to Yusuf, with this, the next move is to submit the document to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the next action.
