Senator Dino Melaye has stated that those asking for his recall are not members of his senatorial district, amid political crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State.
Melaye made this known on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Sunday.
Some Youth over the weekend under the aegis of ”Senator Melaye recall group” gathered at the APC Secretariat in Kabba, headquarters of Kabba-Bunu Local Government Area of the state, to initiate the process of recalling Melaye, who represent Kogi West senatorial district in the red chamber, accusing him of deliberately courting scandals to bring disgrace to the district.
There have been calls for an investigation into an audio tape which surfaced online allegedly capturing the Senator and a judge discussing a bribe over his tribunal case against Senator Smart Adeyemi, which he won.
Unperturbed by the developments, Melaye insisted that those seeking his recall are not from his area.
I am not scared, I am not perturbed; they are sponsored by Smart Adeyemi and my governor.
And I want to tell you that those who even came to ask for the recall are not my constituents and it is unfortunate that they did not even know what to do.
INEC told them to go back and do what they are supposed to do.
