Senator Dino Melaye kicks as process to recall him begins (Photos)


Members of Kogi West senatorial district have started signing the recall register for their representative in the senate, Dino Melaye.

Special assistant to Kogi governor on electronic media, Gbenga Olorunpomi, on Saturday, shared photos of constituents in Odo Ape queuing up to append their signatures for the recall of Melaye.

“The people of Odo Ape say they no longer want senator Dino Melaye as their representative! See photos of the process,” Olorunpomi tweeted.

“The Dino recall process is alive and well in Kogi west. We just might make history.”

But the Senator has described the process to recall him from the upper legislative chamber as an exercise that has no bearing.

The Senator has in reaction claimed that that Kogi governor, Yahaya Bello, has set aside N1 billion for the “unproductive venture” while the state is owing salaries and pensions.

Melaye tweeted, “Yahaya Bello: on recall of Dino Melaye, he is shooting the Moon and boxing the air. Spending over one billion naira tax payers money on an unproductive venture when salaries and pensions have not been paid is wicked.

“I will continue to defend the poor and defenseless masses of kogi state. If I die I die. We must rescue the state.”

Dino also took to Instagram to describe the exercise as a joke.

 He shared a photo showing a page from the signed recall sheet with the caption, 'One hand writing 5 signatures. Joke noni'.
