Don’t Frustrate Recall Process, Group Tells Dino
As the crisis of the recall of the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District of Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye rages on, indigenes under the aegies of aggrieved voters have challenged him not to entertain fear by trying to muzzle the process but to have faith in the INEC which has set time table for the investigation of the process.
Just as the group noted that, the ongoing process of his recall has started yielding dividend of democracy to the constituency as the senator has hurriedly kick started the construction and provision of numerous constituency projects to ostensibly draw the sympathy of the voters.
Addressing newsmen in Lokoja, the spokesperson of the group Cornelius Olowo noted that the senator hurriedly distributed four vehicles to the people of the constituency and awarded and mobilised contractors to site on nine people oriented projects across the constituency urging the remaining two senatorial zones of the state to follow suit as a way of putting pressures on their representatives to perform.
The group maintained that, there is no going back on the process since more than the constitutional requirements have been met advising the embattled senator not to panic and not to arm-twist the electoral body using the courts.
They stated that the Okun Development Initiative (ODI) which allegedly inferred that some prominent Okun indigines have thrown their weight behind Dino as a figment of the imagination of the senator saying the group is unknown and allien to the people.
The spokesperson explained that the embattled Senator was suffering from self inflicting problem of his under development and poor representation adding that his previous and present inglorious activities have been the ghost hunting him.
“That the frivolous inclusion of prominent names such as Gen. David Jemibewon, Bayo Ojo SAN, kola Jamudu and a host of others as his supporters as the most uncharitable. We are aware that they have disassociated themselves from the purported story in the social media.
“We are equally assuring him that we stand by the names and signatures we collated and we urged him to stop preempt the INEC by alluding to some names as dead persons.
We hold the names of the Okun leaders mentioned in the said publication in high esteem and we will not be distracted by his antics to rubbish the meticulous process that we have collated,” They warned.
