The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye has revealed that his own brother and some of his uncles’ names appeared in list of people who want him recalled.
The Senator said this while speaking with Sun, adding that Governor Yahaya Bello was the worst leader the state has ever had.
He also insisted that the governor had tried to kill him on several occasions, while maintaining that Bello does not have the capacity to drag him out of the legislature.
Melaye said, “Yahaya Bello did not vote for me, he is not a member of my constituency, he has no electoral value as far as my seat in the Senate is concerned. So he has no power to recall me.
“So he sat down with his appointees, and got INEC data, then directly transferred names from INEC register to the recall list.
“Do you know that my blood brother’s name is on that list? Do you know that two of my uncles from Takete who are immediate brothers to my mother, their names are on that list?
“And we have also discovered that there were a lot of ghosts, a lot of dead people, their names are on the list.
“In some instances, the names of some people on the list supersede the required number of eligible voters and registered voters in the INEC register
“And I’m telling you on good authority that he’s the worst governor in the history of Kogi State.
“And because of my agitation for the welfare of the workers and pensioners of Kogi State, he orchestrated an assassination attempt on me the first time, it failed. He organized the second attempt; it failed to the glory of God.”
