Members of Senator Dino Melaye’s constituency have commenced moves to recall him from the National Assembly.
According to them, recalling the controversial Senator is in the best interests of Kogi West Senatorial Zone, Kogi State.
The group, who claim they represent: Yagba West, Yagba East, Mopamuro, Ijumu, Kabba/Bunu, Koton-Karfe and Lokoja Local Government Areas say dignity will be restored to the Senate if Melaye is removed.
The group, in a statement which was sent to Pulse News, said “We have compiled the key reasons below to show the world that Senator Dino Melaye’s recall is not only long overdue, but the right thing to do in the best interests of Kogi West Senatorial Zone, Kogi State, Nigeria, and in fact the institution and dignity of the distinguished Senate of the Federal Republic Republic. ”
“Dino Melaye has breached multiple codes of conduct by his deliberate acts and omissions and it is time the authorities acted to enforce the laws and the Constitution. Whether the appropriate authorities act or not, we the people of his constituency who are at the receiving end of his shameful deeds have run out of patience and are resolved to recall and replace him with a decent and people-oriented Senator.
“We understand the requirements of S69 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 regarding the recall of such a member of the National Assembly and hereby assure everyone that Kogi Central Senatorial Zone is united in this and will achieve it.
“We hereby give the Kogi State Government notice that we are going through with this and if they will not help us, they must also not try to stop us or put obstacles in our way, in particular, everything the Law requires to be done by the Administration in Lokoja in aid of this process must be done with despatch,” they added.
