Senate Rubbishes Dino Melaye Recall Process

 The Senate on Tuesday described the ongoing recall process of Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi west, as an exercise dead on arrival.

The matter was raised during plenary by Senate Dino Melaye through Order 14. He told his colleagues that several dead people are on the list of signature submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). 

Melaye added that the recall was initiated by the Kogi State Government and not his constituents. 

“As I speak, I have several death certificates confirming that dead people are in the recall register submitted to the INEC”, Melaye said.

In his contribution, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, described the recall process as an attempt to rubbish democracy in the country. He wondered why the Kogi State Governor would think of recalling a legislator simpling for criticizing him.

Nwaoboshi added that the country is being characterized by impunity. 

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) campaigned on the ground of impunity but impunity has taking over the government of APC” Nwanboshi said.

The Deputy Senate President wondered why they are wasting time discussing the issue that is already dead on arrival. 

He made reference to a section of the constitution that stipulated that after verification of the signature by INEC, the commission will forward the register of signature to Senate for further verification before the recall process is completed.
