INEC Receives Signatures On Dino Melaye's Recal”

Meanwhile, the petition to recall Senator Dino Melaye will be received by the the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday June 21.

NAIJ.com recalls that Melaye who is representing Kogi West, has been on the spotlight following moves by electorates to recall him from the red chamber. "I know people say the enemy of my enemy is my friend but in this case what we are seeing is the determination of the people".

Olowo accused the senator of distancing himself from his constituents.

He said, "In the last two years, some senators have been meeting with their people quarterly".

Kogi West, which Melaye represents in the Senate, has seven local governments areas.

So far, about 188, 588 out of the 360, 098 registered voters in the senatorial district have endorsed Melaye's recall from the Senate.

However, in a stunning twist Wednesday, members of his constituents formally made the petition for his recall at the INEC headquarters in Abuja.

The post BREAKING: INEC Receives Signatures Asking For Recall Of Dino Melaye From Senate appeared first on 360Nobs.com.

On the allegation that the state governor, Yahaya Bello, was sponsoring the recall and that people fought over the money disbursed for the exercise, Mr. Olowo said it was untrue.

According to Yusuf, with this, the next move was to submit the document to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the next action and today, the signatures have been submitted to INEC.

INEC stated this in a statement signed by National Commissioner and member Information and Voter Education Committee, Mohammed Haruna, after their weekly meeting on Thursday.

While denying that they were being sponsored by the Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, Cornelius said they chose to recall their senator because, he had become inaccessible and unreachable and was not representing them responsibly.
